“Les Misérables”

The People’s Show

    The award-winning show “Les Misérables”, based on the book by Victor Hugo, is the second best Broadway production that I have ever seen.  Sad and enchanting, beautiful and angry.  “Les Mis” draws the audience into it’s arresting story of love and loss.  The Tuesday evening opening at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota captured the hearts of the audience with it’s sorrowful, yet heartwarming storyline and alluring…

Les Miserables

On December 6, 2011 I went to see to see Cameron Mackintosh’s new 25th anniversary production of Boublil & Schonberg’s Les Miserables at the Orpheum Theater. This musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel was directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell. This version had great uses of current technology. The lighting done by Paule Constable had a great vision for making every detail on stage pop. Every color popped every jewel sparkled. Each and…

24601: Still Deciphering Les Miserables

    Well, I’ll be honest as can be. The truth is, Les Miserables is still sinking in. Les Miserables is in itself, an entire world of theatre, revolution, of sound. Les Miserables is disheartening and compelling, it’s destitute and overflowing in golden talent. Les Miserables is three hours of images and music notes one never can forget.  It would be quite impossible for a teenager to breach the surface of the ocean of all that could be said with regards to Les Miserables, the longest…

"Dream the Dream" at Les Misérables in Minneapolis

In every musical, there is that song; the one that’s beautiful, powerful, and takes your breath away. In Les Misérables, there is no one song to choose. Based on the book of the same name by Victor Hugo, Les Misérables is an operetta, meaning most of the show is sung.  Everything is drawn out and up and over the top to show symbolism in this show, due to the sometimes…

Devotion, Redemption and Revolution

Les Misérables

Devotion, Redemption, and Revolution

“Oh god, it’s everywhere!” sings the student Marius as he holds Éponine as she bleeds out late in Les Misérables, which you can see at the Orpheum Theatre, running the 6th through the 18th. 

Bloody it was. The plot was a long, twisting epic, though entertaining enough, is far too long for me to condense right here. It is a…

Les Misables 


Wow!!!!! Les Misables started with a proluge, which I thought was pretty cool. Background was a screen which I thought was different. An image of a ship was on the screen for the proluge which featuerd the song Proluge. This song had great depth. The cast’s vocies had a almost perfect blend. i like to go to a show wand hear vocies that blend together.  Unfortunatly there were some times were…
