“Beautiful Revival of a Broadway Classic”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I expected emotional songs, extreme vocal range, quality acting, and some chuckles...and I received it all and then some! This show is a reimagined version of Victor Hugo's classic and even includes some of his paintings as backdrops. This new vision was tried out in London and across the U.S. (we saw a similar set up in Atlanta during the national tour) and they have certainly leveraged the best of their experiences.

Ramin Karimloo as Jean V-J was an unexpected treat! We were familiar with him from the 25th Anniversary Blu Ray performed at London's O2 Arena, where he was Enjolras. In addition, he was the Phantom in its 25th Anniversary Blu Ray. His voice is as true as the recordings captured. A magnificent performance that would compel me to see it again...if I didn't live in Europe. Everyone in the cast is dedicated and does not indicate one moment when they are disconnected from the character they are acting. True professionalism!

I have seen this show for the second time, and this production on Broadway is the better one --bar none! A must see!

“Amazing performance!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

This was the best of all the musicals that we saw. The performers were so talented and the story line allowed them to sing with such passion. Intermission felt a little like prison with all of the shouting instructions on how to line up and exit the restroom.

“The best musical ever”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

It was my firts time in NYC and I got a ticket for Les Mis at Broadtrust theatre as a gift for my birthday. I was lucky enough to see JVJ performed by the wonderful John Owen Jones and Mme Thenadier by Jenny Galloway. Well, I just loved it! It was emotional, amazing, beautiful, brilliant!
Really something hard to forget! It was the best birthday ever!

“Classic Show!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

I purchased Premium seats for this performance and it was amazing.

I have the poster in my office. Tickets are not discountable but the main reason is how popular this show is.

Currently saw this show 5 times!

Must see in New York!

Les Miserables is absolutely fantastic. Ramin Karimloo has an angelic voice when he sings "God on High" & "Bring Him Home". A must see!
