I drove three hours each way to see Les Miserables at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady, and it was well worth it. I love this story--I've reread the book repeatedly and watched every film version YouTube offered, but this was the first live performance I've experienced. The pacing was quick, but they didn't cut enough to damage the story. The singing was moving and beautiful.(I've seen some complaints on this tour that lyrics were hard to understand, but I found everything quite clear.) The set design was arresting--the backgrounds based on Hugo's paintings gave a vivid sense of atmosphere. Most important, the core of the story shone clear-- the vivid awareness of injustice and man-made misery, and of the fact that sometimes people are sincerely trying to stop that misery, working at cross-purposes and making each other worse; the difficulty of breaking down economic/ social systems that crush people; the abiding possibility of love and courage in the face of all that's wrong.

I was reluctant to see the show for a second time, especially after seeing Les Mis in an amazing theater in London years ago. This show in Houston was hands down the best musical I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen many. What a cast! Thank you for an evening I will never forget!

BEST birthday surprise!!

My daughter lives in Houston - a friend of hers called to say Les Miserables was going to be in town and asked if she wanted to go with her. Daughter replies "I ONLY see Les Miz with my mother!" -- SO, she calls me (I'm in L.A.) makes up some excuse to visit, pays my Southwest ticket, and SURPRISES me for my birthday with tickets soo the production!! It was FANTASTIC... one of the very best, made more special that it's become a family tradition! I did see it in L.A. in August, (I think this was my 22nd performance) The last time we were together was at the very LAST Broadway performance way back in 2017! Tickets again were a present - with BOTH my daughters in NYC! I have 5 grandsons, ages 12 - 4yrs... ONE OF THEM WILL PLAY JEAN VALJEAN some day!! (One day more!!) Thank you Houston, you are a BEAUTIFUL city!

Unbelievably Moving. Exceed expectations in every way.

This production was by far one of the best productions I have ever seen. From the acting to the stage setting to the vocals to the humor it was engrossing in every possible way. I was quite honestly very sad when it was over. I can't think of a single criticism of this show. I'd go back again in a heartbeat to watch it all over again. We bought our tickets last second, and paid handsomely for them. I feel like I got a bargain after watching the show. I'd pay double for that experience again.

Brilliant!

I have seen Les Mis productions on Broadway and in Chicago, and loved both of them. However, this performance was one of the very best shows I have ever seen in my life of many decades! Each soloist, from Jean Valjean, Javert and Fantine to the Thenardiers, Eponine, Cosette and Marius, to Gavroche, Enjolras, Grantaire and the Bishop, and to all those I am unintentionally leaving out, was the vocal epitome of the character. I feel absolutely enlightened by this performance.

Emotional and captivating…

I’ve seen Les Miserables 3 times in my life, last night was the best yet! The creamy and perfectly controlled voice of Jean Valjean was straight from the heavens and the gal that played Eponine was the same. Cast and set was 10/10!
