Les Miserables Reviews
I have seen this play on Broadway and now here in Denver. I thought the Denver show was magnificent, the sets were very much the same, even the voices seem to match up with what I saw on Broadway. I went with my wife in NY, we enjoyed it so much we brought our three kids this time… Everyone loved it! my one critique would be that with traffic, lines etc. they could’ve been a little more graceful with the opening act... we waited about 10 minutes to get in and missed the first couple of songs.

Outstanding - The first act left me in awe. The voices were fantastic. A bit of an issue with sound as every once and a while I couldn't understand what the singers were saying. Overall, I strongly recommend.

5 Stars are not enough to describe this fantastic musical. You learn something about yourself after seeing it: Joy, Happiness, Sadness, Complete Entertainment and the most POWERFUL music you will ever hear - Not a dry eye in the theater for many scenes. Simply the BEST

WELL PACED, BEAUTIFULLY SUNG--A WONDERFUL EXEPRIENCE.
I drove three hours each way to see Les Miserables at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady, and it was well worth it. I love this story--I've reread the book repeatedly and watched every film version YouTube offered, but this was the first live performance I've experienced. The pacing was quick, but they didn't cut enough to damage the story. The singing was moving and beautiful.(I've seen some complaints on this tour that lyrics were hard to understand, but I found everything quite clear.) The set design was arresting--the backgrounds based on Hugo's paintings gave a vivid sense of atmosphere. Most important, the core of the story shone clear-- the vivid awareness of injustice and man-made misery, and of the fact that sometimes people are sincerely trying to stop that misery, working at cross-purposes and making each other worse; the difficulty of breaking down economic/ social systems that crush people; the abiding possibility of love and courage in the face of all that's wrong.

The best musical I have been to. Great story, outstanding actors/singers and great scenery. The unforgettable experience was the song "I Dreamed a Dream", it was absolutelly the best performance.

My daughters and I saw Les Mis... for my oldest daughters 18th birthday. She loves the story. The show at the DPAC in Durham was fabulous. It went off with out any glitches and the singers were great. The intensity of the show was emotionally moving and it showed like a movie. Wonderful voices and wonderful acting.
Paul Simpson from Chicago, Illinois
I loved the 2012 movie release so much, I wasn’t sure this new live production would be worth seeing. Yet somehow this new theatrical version found a way to build on the achievements of the previous live versions and the movie release, to create an incredibly awesome new show! Of course seeing this new production in the beautiful Cadillac Palace theater in Chicago was an added bonus. Though I can’t imagine being disappointed watching a DVD of this performance in my home, and I am hoping this release will be soon.
