Book Now The Braille Legacy
Acclaimed director Thom Southerland (Ragtime, Titanic, Grey Gardens) directs the world première of  The Braille Legacy, starring West End star Jérôme Pradon
 
The Braille Legacy tells the thrilling, true, inspirational and epic story of Louis Braille, a young blind boy who wanted the same chance in life as those who see and ended up improving the lives of millions of blind people around the world.
 
In Paris in the 19th century, blind people were victims of profound discrimination. Louis Braille, a bright young mind with a mad dream, arrives at the Royal Institute of Blind Youth, searching for the same chance as everyone else: to be free and independent. But he soon discovers that people and things aren’t always what they first seem. By sheer determination and courage, he stumbles upon something revolutionary: a simple idea, a genius invention, a legacy.
 
Two hundred years ago, Louis Braille changed the world by inventing the tactile system of communication the Braille alphabet, liberating the “People of the Night” and introducing literacy, knowledge and culture to a people who were otherwise trapped. It was their journey into the light.
 
Olivier Award nominated Jérôme Pradon's West End credits include the UK premiere of the musical Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown, Guillaume in Martin Guerre, The Man in Whistle Down the Wind, Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings, Chris in Miss Saigon, Javert in Les Misérables in London and Marius in Paris, and Judas in the Emmy-winning video of Jesus Christ Superstar.
 
The Braille Legacy has an original French Book and Lyrics by Sébastien Lancrenon, Music by Jean-Baptiste Saudray, with an English translation by Ranjit Bolt. Music Supervision and Orchestrations are by Simon Lee.

The Braille Legacy is supported by the Royal National Institute of Blind People.
