Best Show Ever, Nov 14, 2012
reviewer: Larry H from Washington, District of Columbia
If you only see one show in your lifetime, it should be this one. I have the CD, DVD, and see it in the theatre everytime I can. Enjoy the show!

A Middling Performance Of Broadway's Best Show, Apr 26, 2012
reviewer: Ty from Atlanta
The Eponine character, who usually is the most dynamic in the show, is absolutely horrible. Worst I have ever seen (5 broadway, 4 touring) in 16 years of seeing this show. She seems like somebody in the audition rounds of American Idol that just thinks she is the bomb and needs to put vocal run-ups where they don’t belong. Add to that she seems to have a soft-spoken mumble about her, and I was just crushed to see such a prime role murdered. The single worst mauling of On My Own that I’ve heard.
Fantine’s actress also left a lot to be desired, though she sure filled out her corset well. When she broke into her too-quickly-tempoed version of I Dreamed a Dream, I couldn’t help but think I was watching a high school audition. Constant moving about the stage, over-acting, and just pitchy dawg.
Valjean started out a little “meh” but pulled himself together for Bring Him Home, which was nice. The guy has a tendency to go up in pitch when most Valjeans would be going down though. Drove me nuts all night.
And Javert, the character which can dominate a show at any time, was not bad either, though not without fault. First off, he was kind of short. Javert should be a large, imposing figure. This guy was about one inch taller than Valjean. He was struggling through Stars until the last verse where he kinda pulled it out of his rear and saved the song. His suicide was paced wayyyy too quickly and he flatly did not have the ability to bring the appropriate emotion and struggle into the song.
Overall, 5/10.
But those who have never seen the show before, and have no idea how good it can be when properly acted, you’ll like it. The story is fantastic, no matter who is destroying the beautiful music.

Saw it in Omaha, Jun 10, 2011
reviewer: David Silchman from Fort Calhoun, Nebraska
This is a completely new production, with astounding visual effects (not the oh-so-tired-of-them computer variety) I had never before seen in theatre. The way the show is presented is somewhat different but the original is still there in all its glory. I enjoyed every minute of it and would see it many times more.
