FLAWED

The story is the same but the words and music were not accompanied by the same production touches to make it enjoyable to new viewers. I went with 3 couples that have not seen it before and the word "confusing" was used by most. The production did not use the typical town and years on thee screen to show when 10 years pass. The lighting was very poor and the stage was always dark. You could not see colors of costumes or who was singing. The producers made changes to the sets that were not for the better. Maybe it was the narrow stage of the Opera house. The orchestra was right on and true to the original score. The singers were a mixed bag. Valjean's voice did not have the range to match his age always sounding youthful. Eponine had an unusual voice and I did not feel the emotion her songs typically yield., Marius was fantastic as was Fantine. Les Mis is a classic i'll always enjoy but when asked by my friend where it ranked amongst all i've seen my response was it was last.

ENTERTAINING BUT NOT WOWED

I might be biased having seen it performed 5+ times in London. The actors, especially Jean Valjean and Javert, were wonderful. The stage direction and some of the songs felt so rushed and the lighting was so dark. You’d think France only knew nighttime.

SO-SO

This version lacked the excitement of the older shows. I’ve seen it about 7 times. The sets were sparse, the sound very loud, the comical aspects downplayed, and it felt rushed. As others mentioned it was hard to follow if it was your first time seeing it, which was the case for my friend. Actors voices were very good, and the crowd gave an ovation. Overall it was good, but lacked the wow power of previous version. The lighting is dark at all times, even during less emotional moments and although the story is gritty and bleak, having it all sort of one note in color/lighting/tone doesn’t give the character’s evolutions a way to shine. The story has ebb and flow, but in this version it was like they punched you with every song. Like watching a singing competition rather than a developing plot. And the skimpy barricade was just a shame.

SONGS WERE TALKED IN PARTS

I’ve seen Les Miserables at least ten times. It’s my absolute favorite. Although I thought the men leads were great, I wasn’t a fan of the way the women sang. I think it was directorial, but I felt like they were talking parts of the best songs in the show. I left disappointed.

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.

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.
