EDITORS’ OBSESSION: We can’t shut up about…an amazing production of LES MISÉRABLES with Broadway-caliber acting and impressive sets, costumes, orchestration and staging.

SMALLER SCALE 'LES MISÉRABLES' IS POWERFUL AT WPPAC. WPPAC has made a virtue of its smaller size and budget limitations. The spectacle and pomp of the Broadway production is replaced by a sense of intimacy with the main characters. Each face in the crowd scenes is sharply delineated and the people retain their individuality. The glue that holds all the disparate elements of the production together is, of course, its director Jeremy Quinn. ‘Les Mis’ with its quick time and place transitions – needs to build a sense of distinctness for each year and venue. Quinn does this admirably and keeps the pacing lively while giving the serious scenes their full emotional weight. Under his watchful eye, the adaptable ensemble gives quick, compelling details of its various characters while never upstaging the stars.
