Advantages: Great, Outstanding, Soaring Musical
Disadvantages: None, None, None
I have seen this show quite a few times now and can never get bored with it. All the casts I have seen were outstanding.
If you do not know the story or would like to get ahead before you see it, rent out the film Les Miserables (with Liam Neeson and Uma Thurman). Slightly changed and missing a couple of characters, but nontheless a very good film.
Now back to the musical. Once the opening chords start you may get a shiver down your spine (I do, every time). You will be transfixed the whole way through. Great songs, great sets (escpecially Javert's suicide - rotating stage and quick flying bridge!!!) and just amazing.
I culd go on for hours about this show, but I don't want to bore you. SEE IT NOW.
