SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTING

If I didn't know the story, I would not have understood what was going on. Both my husband and I were often frustrated by garbled lyrics and wondered if we chose the wrong seats. Based on other reviews, it looks like seats didn't matter.

AMAZING!

This is the fourth time I have seen Les Miserables including the Broadway production . This was by far the best cast and production I have seen. The cast was outstanding. Most shows have strong and weak members, but not this production. All the members were equally strong in their characters. The vocals were stunning. I thought I was cold but realized I had goosebumps because of the beautiful soul feeling performances of the cast. Phenomenal performances by all. Thank you all for an amazing afternoon. Bravo!

STILL WONDERFUL

This was the 3rd time I have seen it and it is still superb. Maybe a bit long but the sets and the cast were outstanding. I never heard of Nick Cartell but his Jean Valjean will be hard to beat. The entire cast was outstanding and you could hear every word they were singing. Matt Shingledecker (what a great name) is outstanding as Enjolras. This does not seem like a touring edition but a version equal to anything I have seen in New York. Congratulations to this great cast and I am so glad I got to see this production.

BE GONE HAMILTON, THIS IS LES MIS!

The actors voices were strong, the staging was good, the pace of act 1 was slightly rushed (I've come to expect this from Les Mis productions since the early 2000's.) My issue with the production was the "Hamilton" influence of adding modern phrases into the classic book. I don't need to hear Marius say "what's up" when he meets Cosette for the first time. Further the same was done to at least three other numbers where the lyrics were "updated." I also felt that the actor playing Grantaire was directed to play it "like Jefferson from Hamilton only more crude." Look, I get that I'm one of the only humans to have seen Hamilton and not thought it was the greatest thing that had ever hit the board. However I can't be alone in thinking that we don't need every production to copy their style am I?

GREAT PRODUCTION MUFFLED SOUND

I know the show - new choreography- loved it! Hard to understand voices at different times, missed quite a bit of the lines which was disappointing.

CAN NEVER MISS THE CHANCE TO SEE IT LIVE

This was my fifth live theater experience of "Les Miserables" and took a friend who had never seen it who fully enjoyed it. I, however, missed the fluidity of the staging from previous productions e.g.: the original curtain screen and the visually tragic tableau of the barricade when the set revolved to show the defeated and the red swath of the doomed flag - to name a few. I missed much of the previous stage sets and the choreographed moves of the cast. Both actors portraying Valjean and Javert were strong, and Valjean's"Bring Him Home" was exquisite.
