Not worth the hype.

Advantages: My wife loved it!
Disadvantages: The plot is confusing and the characters hard to connect with.
I went to watch Les Miserables last night with my wife. Shes dragged me off to many a musical over the years, and i knew that this was one in particular that she'd always been dying to see - so i bought her tickets for christmas and off we went.
The good news is that she loved it (and has been singing the songs ever since). The bad news is .... i hated it.
I felt that the story was much too difficult to follow, and i failed to connect with any of the characters like i have in other productions. Whilst i did recognise the songs, and can admit that the cast were very talented, i just felt like this production was not one for me. To the point where my favourite bit was watching the guy in front of me who had falled asleep!!! (which again reiterates the boring nature of this show).
My wife loved it - so im guessing that it was money well spent. But in my opinion - if your going to spend alot of money on tickets i'd pick one of the other shows first... try the Lion King or Miss Saigon.
Summary: dont bother.
