Vargas Cabaret Theater is an oasis for those who struggle with mental illness and addiction, a therapeutic way to reintegrate, a place where the world can fall away to musical numbers and stage cues.
It's also a place for friendships and relationships to blossom, to be questioned and pulled apart, to wilt. The latest production of Les Miserables pushes the cast and crew into doing just that.
In a world where the undead have conquered all, English expatriate Arthur Kirkland finds a last shard of humanity in the rubble. It just happens to be in the form of a ragtag group of survivors struggling to live another day as they make their way across the country. A rowdy American, a blathering Italian, a stoic German, another blathering Italian, and a regal Austrian change everything, and from the bombed-out streets of New York City to Chicago's hordes of undead to the fading avenues of Las Vegas, it's clear that nothing will ever be the same.
