2018/2019 US Tour … July 25, 2018
The set was darker than other shows I’ve seen. I understand it fits the mood, but it made it hard to appreciate the details of the set design. The photo to the right shows our view from our front row, mezzanine seats. It appears further away in the picture than it actually was.
Les Mis is one of the top 10 highest grossing Broadway musicals of all time. See the top 29 here. It’s now in my personal top five favorites, which includes Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Frozen, and a tie between Aladdin and Evita. Tied for number six are Mamma Mia and Cabaret.
Next month, I’ll see if Dear Evan Hansen will make that list. Then in May next year, I’m going to see Wicked for the third time!
I’m a huge fan of live theater because it’s LIVE! They don’t get to cut if they mess up; they just roll with it and make it work. It doesn’t happen often but when it does, the audience usually doesn’t even notice.
Are you a fan of live theater? What shows have you seen?
