4.0 star rating 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 performed.

4.0 star rating from Los Angeles, California


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.

4.0 star rating Justin Brooks from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


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.

What more can you say about the play that hasn't been said? This was performed at Clowes Hall, a tremendous venue architecturally and with great staging and lighting. A wonderful theater. I saw previous complaints here about the sound quality at other theaters, not the case here -- I'd give it a 9 out of 10. The voices were very strong, again a 9 out of 10. The sets were not as elaborate as of seen with another production of Les Miz, (I'm guessing if they move from one city to the next every 1-2 weeks they do a little downsizing,) but they made up for it with some innovative lighting and staging, especially Javert's fatal plunge -- that effect was amazing. They threw in small and updated changes (I think) from other versions -- at least I noticed them. Where it was supposed to be funny -- it was, tearful -- it was, joyful -- it was. Enthralling and moving, a good night for touring Broadway in Indianapolis.

4.0 star rating from Richmond, Virginia


Our first time experiencing this sensational story/production live, after years of hearing the original cast, watching reunion shows, and seeing the film production. I, of course, loved the fine voices that performed this great story in this Thursday, March 3rd matinee. My first impression was that I was moving quite a bit faster on the musical cadence; whereas the words were a bit chopped and the actions to match were blurred in a whirl. If you came without knowing the story and circumstances, you may have been a tad lost. The set was darker than I anticipated it would be. And with the spirit of redemption so ingrained I had hoped that light would be shining forth at those key moments. The actor portraying Valjean had a killer voice, and I was justly moved by "Bring Him Home" - standing O all the way around. Several attendees had noted a few more- than-bawdy displays in the tavern scene, so I will note that it did catch my eye. Of all the things that distracted me, the most would be the sound during the earlier numbers; the orchestra (though beautifully performed) overmatched the singers. I would go again, just felt the speed pushed me through to the finish line in record time.

4.0 star rating Richard Bradley from Richmond, Virginia


The play was wonderful and the actors superb. My only criticism was the lighting. Did they forget to pay the electric bill? Were they cutting back on expenses? I jest, of course. It was just too dark. Other than that, wonderful.

4.0 star rating Hilary Bradley from Sterling, VA


It did not disappoint. I have seen it multiple times and it was just as good. I thought the lighting was a bit too dark. I was in AA Orchestra and I would have liked to be able to see the faces a bit better. Epinine was fantastic with her stand out voice. The motion of going through the sewer was good. I don't remember that. I think I might go by myself to see it again! It always brings me to tears. KC member.
