The best musical I have been to. Great story, outstanding actors/singers and great scenery. The unforgettable experience was the song "I Dreamed a Dream", it was absolutelly the best performance.

5 Stars are not enough to describe this fantastic musical. You learn something about yourself after seeing it: Joy, Happiness, Sadness, Complete Entertainment and the most POWERFUL music you will ever hear - Not a dry eye in the theater for many scenes. Simply the BEST

My wife and I are Les Mis nuts. We have seen the show seven times in London over the years. We were really impressed by the Vancouver version we were able to see today. The cast was fantastic. There were some interpretations we haven’t seen before but they worked well. I wasn’t convinced by Steve Czarnecki as Valjean in the opening sequence, but he grew into the role beautifully. And - this is worth noting - his rendition of Bring Him Home is easily the best we have seen, and that’s saying something as we have seen some stars. The rest of the cast were all great as well. We didn’t find any weaknesses. Some clever use of backdrop projections were innovative and worked well. Well done Queen Elizabeth and the whole production. Vancouver can be proud.

Outstanding - The first act left me in awe. The voices were fantastic. A bit of an issue with sound as every once and a while I couldn't understand what the singers were saying. Overall, I strongly recommend.

My daughters and I saw Les Mis... for my oldest daughters 18th birthday. She loves the story. The show at the DPAC in Durham was fabulous. It went off with out any glitches and the singers were great. The intensity of the show was emotionally moving and it showed like a movie. Wonderful voices and wonderful acting.

I drove three hours each way to see Les Miserables at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady, and it was well worth it. I love this story--I've reread the book repeatedly and watched every film version YouTube offered, but this was the first live performance I've experienced. The pacing was quick, but they didn't cut enough to damage the story. The singing was moving and beautiful.(I've seen some complaints on this tour that lyrics were hard to understand, but I found everything quite clear.) The set design was arresting--the backgrounds based on Hugo's paintings gave a vivid sense of atmosphere. Most important, the core of the story shone clear-- the vivid awareness of injustice and man-made misery, and of the fact that sometimes people are sincerely trying to stop that misery, working at cross-purposes and making each other worse; the difficulty of breaking down economic/ social systems that crush people; the abiding possibility of love and courage in the face of all that's wrong.

I first saw Les Mis on Broadway 20+ years ago and was spell-bound. I don’t usually have high expectations of touring casts compared to the OBC (original Broadway cast), but this cast was fantastic. Huge voices, great acting, and the staging, lighting and special effects transported us back to Victor Hugo’s Paris. Next to the OBC in Hamilton, this is my favorite performance of all time!
