I first saw Les Misérables on 27 August, 2011, and I've been back definitely upwards of 15 in London, and a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Broadway! The score is stunning and never fails to give me goosebumps no matter how many times I hear it.

by Susan Brownfield - Feb 10, 2020

There are very good reasons for a show to demonstrate the longevity required to become 2nd longest-running musical in the world - and if I had forgotten why, I was certainly given a pleasant reminder on January 23rd, 2020. Now, I've had the pleasure of seeing Les Miserables a few times. I was able to see the show on Broadway in New York a couple of times in the late 80s, and then enjoyed a touring production on the West Coast in the 90s. Tonight I attended the touring production from the UK and Ireland in Zurich, Switzerland. As a lifelong musical nerd, I was one of those kids who had Les Miserables on constant play in my car cassette deck when I was in high school. This can be a mixed blessing when attending a show because one already knows the score backwards and forwards. In this case, it was apparent that there were quite a few changes since I'd seen the US productions many years ago. Gone was the revolving stage, the text had been altered significantly, and the staging was very different. There was also the addition of video projections. However, this new version was fresh, modern, and utterly spectacular. Katie Hall, as Fantine, provided a performance that was determined and moving. Her rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream' was both poignant and beautiful. Nic Greenshields, as Javert, was a showstopper. My only very tiny complaint would be that I wished that he'd taken the final few measures of Javert's suicide up the octave. I'm not sure of the reason behind the choice, but this is likely very tricky vocally for most baritones. However, given the dramatic weight of the scene it is positively thrilling to hear it sung in that register. This is a very small complaint, frankly, because Greenshields' acting and singing were tremendous and he treated the audience to an otherwise flawless performance. Marius, played by Felix Mosse, was sympathetic, as was Charlie Burn as Cosette. To her credit, Francis Mayli McCann provided a rendition of 'On My Own' which was not a carbon copy of past Eponines, and it was refreshing to hear a different and engaging interpretation of the song. Finally, a well-deserved mention must be made of Dean Chisnall, who played the role of Jean Valjean. The role is arduous and a tour-de-force, but he managed it all effortlessly. 'Bring Him Home' and 'The Epilogue' were heartrending. All told, this was the best cast and performance of Les Miserables that I have seen to date - Broadway included. If you manage to catch this tour, you will not be disappointed!
