An all new version of the classic musical based on Victor Hugo's epic novel, 'Les Mis' tells the story of an ill-fated revolution in the streets of 19th century Paris. More…
'Les Misérables' is now the longest running musical in the world and this production celebrates the musical's 25th anniversary. Set in early 19th-century France, it is based on Victor Hugo's epic novel of the same name, and tells the story of a peasant and a slew of other characters who get swept up into an ill-fated revolution in the streets of Paris.
See it if you like big blockbusters. The staging is impressive, the pacing is fast (altho run time is long). Strong Owen-Jones. This is modern opera.
Don't see it if you want sensible plot, good acting/singing (it's spotty). Over-amplified and unmoving.More spectacle than substance. Not a fan of the score
See it if you like the music of the original production. Sets are nice.
Don't see it if you have kids. New production took a turn for the darker/grimier. Beloved characters became bad people. Poor singers. Others over the top
See it if You've never seen it before, however the original staging is superior.
Don't see it if You love the original, as this version does not live up to it's predecessor.
See it if You love great theatre. This is a classic. Staging is not as good as the original in my opinion but you can't go wrong with GLORIOUS music!
Don't see it if There's no reason not to see this. It's a classic piece of theatre. A piece of history. You'd have to have a heart of stone to not be moved.
See it if I have seen a lot of shows, all shapes and sizes, I tell everyone that Le Miz is the benchmark of what a musical should be, the best musical
Don't see it if ever. It had great acting, singing, direction, songs and set. It is a period piece about the French revolution so it may not be for youseeit
See it if One of the all time wonders. I have not seen in several years but enjoyed it the 3 times in the past. Also for history buffs.
Don't see it if Continuing the positive.. It opened at the same time as Phantom & Saigon and was my #1 at the time
See it if you've never seen it before. Or see it if you've only seen it 10 times before. This is an excellent revival.
Don't see it if It's Les Miz! Just see it already! (Or see it again... You know you want to!)
See it if you love epic, historic dramas with fantastic music; you're a Francophile; or you're in the mood for a good cry.
Don't see it if you don't like opera. The entire show is sung, so if you're not into that, don't bother with it.
See it if You've never seen Les Mis and want to see one of the finest musicals ever written.
Don't see it if You don't feel the need to see Les Mis yet again. It's not vastly different than the previous stagings.
See it if You never saw any Broadway production of the show. Scaled down, the music and story stays with you forever, no matter whom is in the cast!
Don't see it if Do not like totally sung musicals. Operatic music. Dislike French Revolution. Are not romantic. Hated former productions.
See it if you don't mind a slightly shrunken down version of a classic musical. This cast is wonderful, and seem to have a great time together.
Don't see it if you don't like musicals - all the dialogue is sung, you didn't like the movie or you're looking for the big set of the original production.
See it if you like somber musicals and themes of sacrifice and unrequited love
Don't see it if you don't like dated productions, you don't want to see at least thirty middle-aged women crying throughout the show
See it if you want a well rounded musical. I have seen the show three times since its original inception and love it. Music and story are beautiful.
Don't see it if you want a comedic or light show, don't like melodrama or the writings of Victor Hugo.
See it if you enjoy classic shows well produced and well casted or if you have never seen it.
Don't see it if you prefer new shows and are not interested in a classic.
See it if you want to see this classic, popular musical. See it if you love Les Mis or want to see what all the hype is about.
Don't see it if you don't like long, sung-through shows. This show doesn't compare to the original production, but the cast is still great.
See it if you haven't seen it, its closing, its Hugo, it still raises your pulse, but I still say there is only one (maybe 2) song. just went back.
Don't see it if you dont want to be struck by the astounding change in taste. Stodgy and heavy giving way to more lithe staging. It aint 1985 anymore.
See it if you'd enjoy a hit show w/on-point, colorblind casting performed exquisitely. The music/story holds up & you'll leave with a tear in your eye
Don't see it if you'd really, really miss the original revolving stage, which made the set feel bigger and more real. This feels intimate by comparison.
See it if you've seen the original and/or any of the subsequent revivals. The amazing music is still present, but they messed with the staging a bit.
Don't see it if you don't love the big loud magnificent epic classics. Les Miz will never die. BUT, there was no need to mimic the horrendous movie version.
See it if you want to see what is now a classic. great music and lyrics. moving and touching.
Don't see it if you have have seen earlier productions. this is a waterdown kinda version and not as good as the fully staged ones
See it if in pursuit of a perfectly iconic, classic, must-see musical theatre experience. Les Misérables was my first Broadway show: I won't forget!
Don't see it if you prefer newer, more avant-garde theatre; dislike musicals; want something you haven't seen before; or dislike Victor Hugo's novel.
