The most fantastic musical ever. I hope to see it again and again.

After having attended 5 different performances of Les Miz over the years, I have got to say that Nick Cartell’s perormance as Jean valJean, was by far the best ever! Never before have I been moved to tears! His ability to be point on with his voice, AND draw you in with the emotions of the song was astonishing!
Robb from Cleveland, Ohio
This was the 5th performance I have seen-from London to Chicago and this was the best version. Great voices, wonderful staging on a limited stage area. Don't miss it.
Susan Cohen from New Haven, Connecticut
Cast better than the Broadway show I saw. seating perfectly aligned so everyone could clearly see show. The Actors voices were strong, perfect choice of actors Actors for parts taken. The orchestra was in perfect timing. Jon Val John has the richest powerful enchanting voice as did most of the leads!!!! Needless to say, I loved this production!!!!!

THE BEST LES MIS OF ALL! PLEASE RECORD THIS COMPANY.
I’ve seen this wonderful play many times (on Broadway), but last nights experience topped them all! This is the pinnacle of acting, singing, sets, and music (the orchestra below is another vital character here) coming together to created a complete experience. You know you are experiencing great acting when the actors make you FEEL so deeply! This is truly an emotional experience. The singing voices of the major and minor roles are extraordinary - such a thrilling experience to hear talented people who are well-coached and directed! Please record this company! I have never seen an audience so in tuned with a performance - it was beautiful! The applause and standing ovations were so enthusiastic and deserved!

This was one of the most amazing productions we have seen at the Hobby Center in about 15 years as a season ticket holder. Across the board the talent was incredible.

ACROSS THE BOARD EXCELLENCE, BUT KNOW THE STORY BEFORE
Every voice excellent, ensemble best of four prior experiences. Some of the vocal presentations at six star level. Loved every minute. But, a word of warning, if this is a first Les Mis experience, learn the story well before attending. The staging is excellent, but a bit of the love/responsibility story is not sold to the audience. For me, that was a "who cares" as I knew the story, but if it was a first time, I think following the story would have been quite difficult. ------ We saw a matinee and I wanted to attend again in the evening.
