Les Misérables – The musical
The musical made me laugh out loud and allowed me to put the world aside for the night.
This is a musical in every sense of the word.
Every number shines a light on a different character, their story, and a very talented cast.
In scenes with multiple participants, you can see excellent ensemble work!
The set, the visuals, the light and the way the stage (in particular the offstage area) was used was inspiring.
It is nearly 40 years since the classic musical “Les Misérables” premiered, it is an award-winning and highly popular show which has been translated into over 20 languages.
I’ll highly recommend to go!
