Les Miserables, by Boublil & Shoenberg
Well....
Friday, January 23, 2004
4.0
I saw this play numerous times last week so I feel like I am qualified to speak my opinion...

First off, I'd like to say this show actually suprised me. It was very well done. That is, as well as it could be done with the direction the actors recieved...As a whole the cast blended together, and unlike the last production done at North Springs(Macbeth) the cast came together as a whole, not just as a few people who had lead roles and forgot about everyone else.

Standouts would have to be new comer Sarah Davidson. Her voice was beautiful and you can tell she really understood her character's motives. Max Flick also gave a wonderful performance as Enjolras.

As for Andrew Durand, I was speechless. The entire audience was silent during his "Bring Him Home" solo. Although, not the best actor, the kid defintly has a musical career ahead.

Unlike Paige Anderson's character, I was actually happy when Fantine died. Nikki Dillion, who usually does an ok with all the leads she gets, was horrible! The notes were flat and she screamed the second part of the song. Usually when Fantine dies, it is a tramatic expierence to witness from the audience, Nikki actually turned it into a farce. Yes, I do believe she is better than the average high school actor, but yet she is still highly overrated.

As for the technical aspect of the show, one statement of advice: get a better sound op.!
