"...Soaring vocals, stunning costumes, weepy theatre goers: these are all things you expect at a production of LES MISERABLES. But a pace that leaves you reeling and energized? I didn't realize that was possible. The pacing, oh the pacing! This touring production of Cameron Mackintosh's production of Boublil and Schonberg's LES MISERABLES, directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell, is fresh, immediate, and wildly entertaining."

"...There's a reason why Les Miz has been seen by over 70 million people worldwide. A reason why Émile Bayard's illustration of young Cosette is etched into the minds of theatre-goers. It's a thunderous musical that leaves audiences clapping until their hands go numb. Even with a few unremarkable moments, this touring production is still a robust tidal wave of theatre."
