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!

I’ve seen this show 4 times, two in NYC and
two here in Charlotte. In this production the
voices were wonderful as was the acting. My
disappointment was that much of the words
were unintelligible so if you didn’t know the
show you might not understand the story. The
orchestra seemed to be too loud at times. Also
the staging was extremely dark. However, with
that said, this is one of the best shows ever

SOLID AS A WHOLE WITH SOME WEAKNESSES
Thankfully, Javert and Valjean shine. "Bring Him Home" was stellar. Marius and Cosette likewise were fantastic. Thénardiers were ok, though he was quite hard to understand half the time. The only low point was Fantine. Applause for "I Dreamed A Dream" was tepid at best, and understandably so. Very pitchy, unfortunately. Perhaps it was an off performance for Mary Kate Moore? I saw the original B'way production a few months into its run, and I have to admit I miss the circular, rotating stage. I also don't recall the lighting design being so DARK! But perhaps it was, and my memory has faded.

LES MIS FIRE
Les Mis is one of my all time favorite shows. I saw it on Broadway for the first time as a child in 1988. I have worked on the show multiple times in my professional career as a technician. This production has issues. It also has some great performances. Val Jean, Fantine, Javier, Madame Thenardier, Marius were all up to the task if you could find them on stage in the "artistic theatrical lighting". Give me a tech rehearsal so I can please fix your lights. The lack of a turn-table ruins the staging of the show. Uninspiring battle at the barricade. Thenardier often my favorite was rather stiff and don't get me started on Epinine, though she did redeem some of her signing in Act II. Empty chairs and empty stage would be a better title for the song. The use of the projection was a welcomed addition and wasn't overused. Why do people try to recreate perfection only to destroy the heart of what made it so true?

LES MISERABLES, CLEVELAND, OH
Very dim set lighting. I was distracted how dark everything was. I kept waiting for the set to lighten up, but it never did. I thought it felt a little rushed. I knew the story and songs so I understood what was going on, but someone unfamiliar may have trouble following it. Not sure if it was the sound clarity. Female singers were excellent and children too. I thought the male singing not as strong at times. My first experience of seeing this was via the movie so I think it ruined my theatre viewing of this production.

GREAT CAST BAD LIGHTING
Saw Les Miserables yesterday (2 pm) sitting in the E section orchestra area. Loved the voices but whomever choreographed the lighting was way off. Having paid over $200 for tickets for my wife and I I spent half the show watching darken shapes on stage. To me, the lighting or lack of lighting was a big distraction. I wanna see whats going on on stage. Other than that fantastic production. Went to The Answer Brewpub afterwards...highly recommend it.

ENJOYED SHOW BUT NOT THE BEST PERFORMANCE
I love Les Miserables and have seen it many times. Hartford a few years ago and usually New Haven. This time, the sound was awful, I knew most of the lyrics but couldn't understand many of the words being sung. The stage was dark throughout the show and a lot of the staging from previous shows seemed to be gone.
The voices were strong and some songs were excellent and the finale was wonderful, it always brings goosebumps. The sound issues though made it the least enjoyable of all the shows I've seen. Reading some other reviews, I guess it wasn't just ours.
