Les Miserables

Wednesday, March 1, 2023

LES MISERABLES

Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, LES MISÉRABLES tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless statement to the survival of the human spirit. Featuring one of the greatest scores of all time, with thrilling and beloved songs including “I Dreamed A Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More,” “Do You Hear the People Sing” and many more, this epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. Along with the Oscar-winning movie version, it has now been seen by more than 120 million people in 52 countries and in 22 languages around the globe. LES MISÉRABLES is undisputedly “one of the greatest musicals ever created” (Chicago Tribune) breaking box office records everywhere in its 35th year.

Prior to the show, we will stop at the Chicago French Market for time to explore and eat lunch on your own. Founded in 2009, the Chicago French Market came about with the movement in America to support local food systems and bring back the European-inspired marketplace — providing year-round, permanent access to their local bounty. This location brings together a unique collection of 30 + local vendors that were hand selected for their individual passions and high-quality products.

Cost: $125 left and right lower balcony seating per person, $170 center loge seating per person.  Cancellations will be refunded ONLY if we are able to fill your vacancy.

Joliet PrisonTuesday, April 18, 2023

PRISON, PULPITS & POOR BOYS

We begin our day by visiting the Joliet Area Historical Museum. This museum occupies the space formerly known as the Ottawa Street Methodist Church. This interactive museum celebrates themes and experiences of people who settled in the Joliet area, including the Route 66 Experience, War Heroes Gallery, permanent gallery, temporary gallery and gift shop. See the new, 2-story exhibit that celebrates space exploration and the Apollo missions—The Soaring Achievements of John C. Houbolt, a Joliet native!

Next, we will enjoy lunch at the iconic Merichka’s restaurant in Crest Hill. Merichka’s opened on April 18, 1933 when prohibition was repealed. They are famous for their Poorboy, a garlic seasoned cube steak sandwich. After 89 years of operation, the 3rd and 4th generation of family are still operating the restaurant. Our limited menu options include a half-fried chicken, Poorboy steak sandwich, Yodel Burger, Icelandic Cod or Fried Jumbo Shrimp.

Finally, we will visit the infamous Joliet Prison. Opened in 1858, just six years after the incorporation of the City of Joliet, the Illinois State Penitentiary, now known simply as the “Old Joliet Prison,” has, for better or worse, been synonymous with the City of Joliet. The Joliet Prison, with its iconic castellated gothic architecture was designed by Chicago’s earliest architect W.W. Boyington, who also designed the Chicago Water Tower. The Prison is probably best known today for its most popular, albeit fictional inmate – “Joliet Jake” Blues from the 1980 film The Blues Brothers. Since then, the Prison has made a number of appearances in films in television, including as the character of “Fox River State Penitentiary” in the critically acclaimed Fox series Prison Break, and in smaller scenes in Derailed, Let’s Go to Prison, and recently, Empire. We will enjoy a 90-minute walking tour of this 15-acre property, led by actual prison guards who worked at the prison while it was still in operation. You will hear about the daily life at the prison during their time there—a more personal take on the site’s history. We will visit the East and West Cell Houses, North Segregation, Cafeteria, Chapel and Honor Dorm on this tour.

Please note—adult themes and language are used on this tour and closed toed walking shoes are recommended as this is an un-restored site with uneven walking surfaces in some areas. Tours are held regardless of weather and the buildings are not climate controlled. The site is not completely ADA compliant but around 70% of the tour is accessible to all patrons.

Cost:  $150 per person.  Cancellations will be refunded ONLY if we are able to fill your vacancy.
