I have always wanted to see Les Miserables but never got the chance so I saw an ad in the local Cape Cod Times for a performance at the Academy of Performing Arts in Orleans that had been extended another week due to popular demand. The write up sounded awesome and I had been there before to see other performances that were great so I called and took an elder neighbor last night and we had a blast !!! The Academies Artistic Director Peter Earle directed this performance and truly did an OUTSTANDING JOB and should be commended for his efforts. No need to go to Broadway when you have a treasure like this on Cape Cod. The venue is quaint and adorable in an old white building up on the hill and you need to go upstairs to see the performance but if you are physically able it is well worth it. The theatre does not have a bad seat in it and the seats wrap around the stage for great viewing. They now have air conditioning and the performers are INCREDIBLE !!! They are all volunteers and they give it their all. This performance was truly THE BEST I have ever seen there and they have all been awesome !!! Parking is at a premium so get their early but if you have a chance DO NOT MISS THIS PERFORMANCE and theatre if you are on Cape Cod. You will not be disappointed and it's all for $24.00 !!!!! According to the program book the Academy does have plans to improve the parking and accessibility issues in the near future which will make it a great venue for everyone.
