my vanvouver les misersble experience, Jun 22, 2013
reviewer: Scott h from Vancouver, British Columbia
First of all I must say that les miserable is my favorite
broadway show, having seen it 3 times now in vancouver and
once in london. Overall I liked the latest showing. Both val
jean and javrert performed quite well. I only have 2 critiques
that took away from an overall enjoyable evening. First of all
about half of the performers had their mikes hanging down
on their forheads which was hard to ignore. For me sitting in
row 9 seat 43 it was distacting and took away from their
performance. (Not that I blame the cast for this). The second
critique is hard to say. I have always believed that the best
person for a job should get it. That being said, having Marius
played by an asian man in an 1800s period Paris play was a
bit to take in (even though he did a good job of it). I just felt
like it wss a little out of place, but we live in a PC country
now. Overall I did enjoy the show and had a nice evening out

Oh! so disappointing in Vancouver, Jun 15, 2013
reviewer: Tom Thornton from Vancouver, British Columbia
The sound is awful in this production at the QE .
The Orchestra is way over amplified to the point of being painful and drowning out the vocalists. Unsure why ? -Bad diction, poor microphones, bad sound system or audio technicians, but the lyrics were indicernable. What a shame as the staging was awesome !

Bad sound, bad lighting, broken storyline, Jun 13, 2013
reviewer: Anonymous from Sacramento, California
Took my wife for her to see Le Miz for the first time in Sacramento, CA. I saw the Sacramento production in about 1998 and I was blown away, and I had never even HEARD of Les Miz at that point in my life. I felt the characters, the setting, and the whole story! BUT this production was awful. For one, we could not hardly hear any of the words (the guy in the seat behid me said the same thing and we were about 10 seat back from front) as the general audio was terrible and the tempo was very rushed. Two, the lighting was not good. Three, the sets seemed cheap. Four the music was too loud most the time. And five, the overt sexual acts were unnecessary to the story.... I gave it one star as the performers seemed fine, not their fault. I feel bad my wife had to see this production first.... I'm glad I took her to see Wicked in S.F. a few months ago and it was fantastic!

Amazing Production, few poor choices., Jun 11, 2013
reviewer: Simple Citizen from Reno, NV
This show was spectacular. I went in expecting a good show - but I knew it wasn't the Broadway production, or the North American Touring group - so I didn't expect it to be great. It was.

The staging, the orchestra, and the lighting were perfect. Really. It was perfectly staged with great use of set pieces for multiple scenes with nothing seeming out of place. The orchestra was perfect, volume was great, and I was amazed to hear an orchestra sounding just as good as the 25th Anniversary concert int he O2 in London. They really were that good.

The characters were mostly great, with a few faulty choices. See full review here:

Sad version of the MOVIE & SHOULD come with an "R" rating , Jun 10, 2013
reviewer: M. Smith from Sacramento, California
I've seen Les Mis ever since it came to Sacramento in '92. I am aware the musical may need to be updated but this wasn't an update! It was a thearical version of the movie. The exaggerated sex scenes were unnecessary and vulgar! The couple in the innkeeper scene was over the top in simulating sex. LOW CLASS AND IN VERY POOR TASTE. I can't recommend this to any of my friends and I will think twice about buying tickets the next time around. This is not for family entertainment.
