Broadway Across Canada has brought the most marvellous production of Les Miserables to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver.
Linda and Ian Harrison saw it on the opening night.
The staging was dark and glowering in keeping with the theme. It was an open stage flanked with what looked like cubes stacked on top of each other. The backdrop was a projection screen. While there is no turntable, the sets move into place seamlessly providing a sense of the locales through the story. The set itself twists and turns on itself to provide the various locations.
The orchestra and singers are in balance and you can hear every word.
Javert’s final scene must be seen! The staging is truly phenomenal.
The acting and singing is wonderful.
It’s on for a short time July 10 - 15.
