ORCHESTRA AND SINGERS FABULOUS; STAGE LIGHTING HORRENDOUS
The music was fabulous but the stage lighting was so dark it was like watching sepia toned shadows moving around on stage. In the first scene I thought it was dark in order to represent the grimness of Jean Valjean's prison, but it continued throughout the show. It is possible to portray mood while still allowing the audience to see the stage set and actors. In this case I might as well have kept my eyes closed because it would have been less frustrating.

i loved the play. Although it's almost 3 hours, the time went by quickly. The sets and
special effects were quite good as well. Not for young children.
Sherry from Detroit, Michigan
LOVED ALMOST EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!
The music, the singing, the acting were fabulous and the sets were amazing as well. If
you know the story line, it is filled with a wonderful message of hope and redemption,
but the reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is because I could really do without seeing some
of the obscene gestures in a few of the acts. (ex: at least 3 times when different objects
are used as a male body part) It is not needed at all. Makes it a little less family friendly,
but everything else was great!
Ruth from Ottawa, Ontario
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!
Inez kraus from Charlotte, North Carolina
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.

TREMENDOUS: GOOD & SOMETIMES GREAT VOICES BUT BAD SET
We have seen many productions of Les Mis, including the original on Broadway, and we really enjoyed this one. Most of the voices were excellent. Nick Cartell as Val Jean, in particular, shone. He comes close to matching the original recordings and production. Thernardier was a bit weak as was the adult Cosette. Maybe they had an off-day. The Philadelphia set was not good and also very poorly lit. All in all, top notch.
