While I agree with the reviews below that the sound system made it difficult to understand a lot of the words. But setting this aside, the performance was powerful.
My wife and I saw it first on broadway. But in this performance I heard something I had never heard before in my life.
Late in the solo of Bring Him Home, the lovely sound of both the soloist and the violin were indistinguishable, one to the other, to my ear.
I had never such a thing in my life. I’m not sure if this was because the vibrato of both were perfectly in sinc, but it was quite a moment!

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

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.

The sound and acoustics were so bad, most of the songs were just noise. I had an awfully
difficult time understanding most of them, even after the show was stopped so the sound
system could be adjusted. I actually fell asleep for a few minutes. Being that it w
as such hard work, I left at the intermission and headed home to watch the movie version.
Very disheartening since the voices were so lovely sounding, the costumes and scenery were
outstanding, and the cast energy was brilliant. Something needs to be done with the horrible
sound system in that theater!

I WAS MISERABLE!
This is my fourth time watching Les Miserable as its one of my favorite shows. 2nd time at the Orpheum. This was by far the worst version I have seen. I do not know if the play was revised. Sound was bad. Especially in the beginning, the singing was rushed and garbled. This contributed to making songs / especially group singing often unintelligible. Singers with sharp voices like Eponine and Fantine were very hard to understand. Javert was totally mumbling to himself. If you do not know the story, your SOL because you will never understand the plot based on this show run. The set and lighting was definitely changed from the original version, it is much darker and does not do the play justice. I'm hoping these latest reviews are seen and they bring the original version back. I did not even finish the play as it did not get better. A waste of money!
I wanted to like it from Denver, Colorado
The set design changes give the over production quality a cheaper look. Bring back the spinning stage! While every performer brings his own take to the characters Javier's was particularly distracting and caused tempo changes thus throwing performances like the confrontation off. Still loved the actors voice however. Valjean was a true to the classic production while giving a fresh look at the character. If this was my first time seeing Les Miserable I would call it an ok show but would not have fallen in love with it enough to see it over again. They are bringing a beloved classic musical back to life, okay is not good enough. Still worth it if this is your first time, if this not your first, skip this performance.
