BEAUTIFUL WORK, BUT TECHNICALLY WEAK

The lighting is troubling. I've seen Les Mis five times and I struggled in the orchestra section to see the actors and figure out who was singing in certain numbers. The orchestra was also missing something: characteristic notes missing, like an instrument wasn't hired? Or not enough members? Jean Val Jean is superb, same with Gavrosh and Marius. Eponine's quiet lines were too quiet (A stage whisper should still resonate) and Javert struggled at times. Overall I love the play and while this version wasn't as good as some others, I still enjoyed it.

GREAT VOICES - NO FEELING

This is a gorgeous looking production with absolutely magnificent voices! Missed opportunities prevail with the leads way too over the top and yet with no feeling. Epinone is oddly staged upstage left for her I DREAMED A DREAM which diminishes the effect of the beautiful song. Again a beautiful voice with no feeling apparent. Disappointing.

LES MIS DISAPPOINTED

I first saw Les Mis on Broadway and the entire production was incredible in every conceivable way. Unfortunately, this was not the case with Saturday night's performance at the Orpheum. The sound was awful. I couldn't understand a word in the opening scene. It was very muffled. The chorus songs were easier to understand as were a few solos later in the show. However, overall, it was not a show that I could sit back and enjoy. My daughter and I both strained to understand many moments. I would like to note that we had good seats, and I attend Orpheum productions pretty regularly. This was the first time I've ever experienced this and it was very unfortunate.

GREAT CAST, HORRIBLE PRODUCTION

I absolutely loved the cast and they were the saving grace for this production, which I suppose is the most important part. But the lighting was the most god awful I’ve ever seen. You literally couldn’t see anything that was going on. I know Les Mis was supposed to be dark but this was ridiculous. And the mikes for Fantine and Thenardier were completely f*cked. No excuse for poor production on a show of this scale.

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!

LES IS NOT MORE!!

This was the 6th or 7th time I've seen Les Miserables dating back to London in 1990. I always see the touring productions and have never been disappointed until Wednesday, September 19, 2018. Everything seemed cramped on stage. The reveals during the battle sequence weren't reveals and lost their emotional connection for me. The actors were wonderful singers, but wanted to "act" there way through the numbers to where sometimes they were inaudible. Empty Chairs and Empty Tables on a bare stage makes no sense!! I love this musical and the music that tells the story, however, this minimalistic production is at the bottom of my list.
