Les Misérables, by Claude Michel Shonberg
Les Miserables, Not so miserable
Sunday, September 28, 2008
3.5
Overall I enjoyed the staging of the Theater Of The Stars, Les Miserables. I think vocally, the show was near perfect. The projections worked at times, but many of the projections were to modern compared to others that they chose. Javert did not age one bit from beginning until end. ValJean did, but not Javert. Why? I am actually surprised Deadalus missed that one, or the brand new polyurethane lacquered guitar they played behind the barricade! Marius Voice had huge vibrato control problems. Sometimes the cast would come on to set up a scene, and then get into character instead of coming on in character. The Cosette and Eponine were among the best that I have seen. I loved Laurent Giroux in Annie, but not here. Anyone can get a laugh with the great material, I would have liked to sen more than just that. The Orchestra was spot on, and the shows pacing ws very good. I agree that I did not miss the turntable (I thought I would). I think it takes a director with guts to try anything different with this show, so I applaud his courage. Overall, even with my nit picks, it was a good evening.
