The show was great, but the seats were not where I expected. I'm glad I went, but the tickets were overpriced for the location.

20 years after first seeing the West End production in London this show still delivers with a punch!
Ticket transaction was easy. My only complaint was that the seats were waaaaay in the back of the theater. Would have been nice to be able to...continued

The music and sets were amazing, but this was not for the Grand Tier and we could barely see the stage. The tickets were for the back of the balcony, two rows from the back of the theater. This was no deal. I have never been more disappointed in a...continued

How can you go wrong with Les Mis? I watched this on Broadway several years back, and it's always such a pleasure to watch it again. Definitely recommend it (and bring some binoculars if you sit up on the balcony!)

The play itself was fabulous, and the singing was great, but I had a terrible seat (almost to the very back of the top balcony).

The play was wonderful. I enjoyed the music very much and the sets were amazing.
I was very disappointed with Godstar. I was seated in the very back of the theather which was not the area showed to me when I purchased. It indicated another...continued

The play was wonderful but we were very disappointed in our seats. We were in ROW U which was 5 rows from the last seat in the Grand Tier/Balcony. This was our first time using GoldStar and we aren't sure we'll risk using it again.

The production and performances were excellent. I was a bit disappointed in my seats. They were very high in the theater; I expected better for a $120 ticket. Live and learn...the 5th Avenue is just VERY expensive.

Lived up to the hype of the Broadway musical. It was a great performance by all involved and we enjoyed in thoroughly.

The new staging of Les Miserables is quite a bit more dramatic than the original production. The number of sets and the flawless set changes were amazing. The songs are pretty much intact with the exception of a couple that were shortened a verse,...continued

This was an amazing cast, seats weren't too great, mid-balcony, but the show was stellar!

My husband and I took my Mum for her first Les Mis experience; it was our 5th! The production was outstanding, but we did have some glitches. On the way up to Seattle from Olympia, we had a flat tire. On July 4th it was impossible to get a new...continued

This is pretty much our favorite musical. The voices were excellent, both solo and in choral harmony. Almost hard to believe. And the diction was excellent. The sets were wonderful; what a great way to present the sewer. Beautiful costumes. Our...continued

After the first five minutes, I leaned over to my companion and said, "I'm sorry; I didn't realize they made it into a Hollywood movie." The new title should be Les Misérables Full Throttle: Revenge of the Barricade in 3D! The show is quite...continued

Amazing performance. One of the best casts I've seen. Hve been to very few theater productions where there was a standing ovation even before the curtain call.

Les Mis is my favorite musical and I attended with a friend who loves it even more than I do. We enjoyed ourselves even though the performances were less than stellar (especially Javert, who often sounded as though he was reading a script). The...continued
