Audience Reviews for Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert
I watched this, because I loved the movie. The stage production is more of an opera setting, which is something that I do not like. BUT, I am rating this do to the production itself...it was absolutely phenominal! They really do pull out all the stops for this one!! From talent, to sound effects, to stage presence, to full orchestra ensemble, to chorus enhanced...even some Nick Jonas, believe it or not. I thought that he did quite well, even though he is no where near the quality as the others. All in all, though, this is something that I think everyone should experience once in their lives...there is a reason that it has lasted 25 years. :)
Some of the greatest music in the history of theater comes from Les Miserables, and this concert is a stunning display of it. It's lengthy, but worth every minute. Loved it!
Aside from Nick Jonas, this is a very strong cast. Alfie Boe has easily become my favorite Valjean after this performance, Samantha Barks is a wonderful Eponine, Norm Lewis plays Javert in a whole new unique way than I've seen before, and Ramin Karimloo, while not in any way better than the gloriousness of Michael Maguire, is still a very good Enjolras. Matt Lucas is also one of the best Thenardiers I've seen - just the right mixture of comedy and repulsiveness. Nick Jonas is not a terribly good actor and, while he's not an awful singer, he certainly is out of place among these powerful voices. I was pleasantly surprised by his "Empty Chairs At Empty Tables," however - while he started off fairly wimpy, he managed to kick it up a notch halfway through and ended on a strong note. Good for him. Luckily, Marius is a fluffy enough character that it doesn't detract too much from the overall show. If you must choose between this and the Tenth Anniversary Cast, I would choose the latter, but both have their merits. Nicely done.
