LES MISERABLES

My wife and I have seen like 15 different performances over 25 years and this was the most disappointing. The person playing Cosette was probably on par of all past performances but on the final show on 11/18 in Cleveland, we got the understudy for Javert who was ok, and and the understudy for Eponine, whose vocal range was limited and she wound up screaming vs singing. Fantine was lifeless and the singing was not up to par for this performance. Jean Valjean was decent but he had strong competition compared to the various actors we have seen over the years. In addition the staging without the revolving stage looks cheap as they only displayed one side of the barricade compared to past performances with the revolving stage which made it more dramatic. It also seems like there a lot fewer members in the ensemble. The ensemble group numbers were the best numbers of the show as the overall quality was comparable to past performances.

THIS ‘LES MIS’ MISSES!

This is one of our favorite musicals of all time, so we were so excited to be able to see it at the Hippodrome! But unfortunately we left very disappointed with this production. The staging of the show was terrible. The lighting was so poor that most of the time the performers could not be clearly seen - and we had orchestra seats! The sound quality was often muffled & distracted from the song quality. I also did not like the ‘echo’ sound effects included in some of the songs. Some of the costumes lacked historical accuracy. Les Mis is a show that fills me with emotion. But unfortunately I never felt any of that from these performers - especially from the most tragic character - Fontine!

THIRD TIME IS THE WORST.

I’ve seen Les Mis three times over the years. The show is one of my favorites. Unfortunately the sound quality and pitchy tone of the performers easily makes this the worst rendition I’ve seen. I’m not sure if the poor performance was due to it being the second show of the day, but this was definitely not Broadway quality. The best singers were the children. I feel cheated.

I'VE HEARD BETTER

First, let me say that the sets were very impressive. From there it went down hill. It wasn't so much the singers themselves but the sound in the theater. Maybe if the place was empty and they were only singing to me, it might have been different but with a full theater and everyone making noises around me, the voices were not clear at all. Perhaps if the theater had speakers like at a movie theater, it might have been different.

THE BEST

This performance was one of the best I've ever seen....and I've seen it at least a dozen times. The voices just kept on "giving" and the acting was wonderful. Kudos!

OMG

I have seen Les Mis many times. I’m always just excited to go see it. This performance topped all. I was expecting a pleasant evening with my favorite musical and, instead, I experienced a rush of emotions and pure spontaneous glee in watching this cast. The visuals and special effects were amazing and the talent riviled Broadway. If one has a chance, go see! You won’t be disappointed!

LES MISERABLES

I have viewed this musical many times, my grandfather named my aunt Frances Cosette when she was born and I was named Barbara Cosette also when my grandfather was reading this book many years ago, I am 80 years old and I did not like the name when I was young, but I loved the name as I grew older. My grandsons were in this musical and had the leads at their high school in Kentucky. I saw this many times when they performed. It is the best show ever and it is fantastic, I can't wait to see it in Toledo. I have this book named "Cosette" and am very proud of it.
