LES MISERABLES

The most fantastic musical ever. I hope to see it again and again.

5.0 star rating Carol Meyer Schaap from Chicago, Illinois

GREAT SHOW!

The plot, the songs, the sets, the costumes- all great! One of my favorite shows ever! Some risqué bits in it - be aware if you are taking children.

ORCHESTRA AND SINGERS FABULOUS; STAGE LIGHTING HORRENDOUS

The music was fabulous but the stage lighting was so dark it was like watching sepia toned shadows moving around on stage. In the first scene I thought it was dark in order to represent the grimness of Jean Valjean's prison, but it continued throughout the show. It is possible to portray mood while still allowing the audience to see the stage set and actors. In this case I might as well have kept my eyes closed because it would have been less frustrating.

GREAT PERFORMERS AND ORCHESTRA...TERRIBLE SOUND BALANCE!

I couldn't understand the performers most of the time. I first thought they were just being too expressive, but then I could tell the audio wasn't balanced that their booming voices made it difficult to understand them. If it wasn't because i have seen the movie and heard the soundtrack many a times before that I would know what was happening. I lost focused of who was singing because the lighting wasn't always on the main person. So I my eyes would wander off looking for who is singing as the costumers were similar for every character and couldn't distinguish some from others. I believe lighting and sound where the problem here. The acting was wonderful and musicians as well. I hope this won't be how the rest of the seasons turns out to be.

FANTASTIC

i loved the play. Although it's almost 3 hours, the time went by quickly. The sets and special effects were quite good as well. Not for young children.

NICK CARTELL

After having attended 5 different performances of Les Miz over the years, I have got to say that Nick Cartell’s perormance as Jean valJean, was by far the best ever! Never before have I been moved to tears! His ability to be point on with his voice, AND draw you in with the emotions of the song was astonishing!

LES MIS

The show was amazing - I have never seen a production of Les Mis I didn't love. If you have never seen this I highly recommend the show. In this production at the NAC 2018 however there were a couple casting problems with Fantineand Cosette - both actresses had wonderful voices but their acting lacked the rawness required of the Characters. They both seemed better suited to play Dorothy in OZ and lacked the ability to play a character with raw emotion pain and absolute love . Other than that the show was great. I would see it again!
