Yesterday I saw Les Misérables.
OH MY GOD. SO GOOD!!!!!!
Everything about it was amazing. Great cast, great singing, great costumes and sets and everything.
Tears were shed. I cried during A Little Fall of Rain, Bring Him Home, and Empty Chairs At Empty Tables.
My only criticisms:
1- It was long. Like, over 2.5 hours. That works for on-stage musicals, but movies don't have intermission. By the intermission point (One Day More, if memory serves), I really needed to pee.
2- I didn't care for the young man who played Marius. Decent voice, but when compared to how amazing the others looked and sounded, he wasn't great.
