The Braille Legacy has arrived at the Charing Cross Theatre for the world premiere of the new musical about Louis Braille by Thom Southerland, which ran till 24th June 2017.

The show tells the true story of Louis Braille, following his inspirational and thrilling story from a young blind boy who dreamt of having the same opportunities as everyone else in life, before becoming an iconic figure who managed to revolutionize the lives of millions of blind people around the global.

As an intelligent young with an incredible dream, Louis Braille arrived in Paris, a city where the blind were victims of incredible discrimination. After joining the Royal Institute of Blind Youth hoping for the same chance in life as everyone else as well as his own independence, he soon finds that things are not always what they seem.

With bravery and determination, he soon stumbles on a revolutionary idea that will change the world forever and establish his legacy.

It was then, two hundred years ago that Louis Braille changed the lives of countless generations of blind people by creating the versatile system of the Braille communication system, helping to introduce literacy, culture and knowledge to those who were otherwise trapped.

The Braille Legacy stars the Olivier Award nominated Jerome Pradon, who is best known for his roles as Javert in Les Miserables, Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings and Chris in Miss Saigon.
