For a community theater experience, this was excellent. It's a huge cast, and everyone did a great job, right on cue, including the children in the cast. Vista is an hour away from where we live, so this first-time experience at this venue needed...continued

Although we arrived 1/2 hour before the show, there was a LONG line to get in. It was a very hot day & waiting in the sun was uncomfortable. The seats were a bit worn & it was difficult to hear some of the words in the songs. The show itself...continued

Terrific show! Held over for one more week. Opportunity not to be missed.
Only down-side is open seating, so get in very line early. Small venue, so AT LEAST an hour and a half before box office opens.

This small community theater did a spectacular job with this classic. The wonderful live orchestra, incredible vocalists and entire cast were outstanding and worked so well together. In the big theaters it's often difficult to hear lines clearly,...continued

This cast was better than the production at the San Diego Civic Theater! I didn't expect it to be that professional, but it was. I was completely blown-over---so impressed!!!

This performance was much better than expected. I saw the movie and loved it, but this was as good overall and better in some areas.

Absolutely one of the best musicals I have seen this year. The cast of 70 were outstanding in voice projection, enthusiasm, and compassion for the roles that they played. Becauase of sold out shows, they are extending the production for another...continued

The microphone sound quality was a bit unpredictable but the voice quality of the performers was great. The troupe does some amazing work with the limited stage space they have.

I have seen Les Miserable more times than I can count, on Broadway, the West End and many local productions. This production was far more than I expected in my own neighborhood of Vista!! I truly was both pleased and impressed. The talent was...continued

We had never seen the play or the movie before & were skeptical as to whether we would like it or be able to understand what all was going on. It was excellent! We all loved it & we did exceptionally well at understanding and following what was...continued

I attended this performance based largely on the reviews I read. I cannot begin to imagine what show those people watched. This show was one of the worst productions I've seen in a very long time. The sets were terrible. The costumes looked...continued

I was so excited to see the play because I had previously seen the movie. It was truly a wonderful play, beautiful singing, and a great cast. What a fabulous production in a community theater.

I didn't realize this was a Star Theatre group production so I was expecting an all-adult cast. Thus my expectations were pretty high. For a cast with so many youth it was very well done, but still not up to the quality of the Les Mis that was...continued

The Avo Playhouse is a small theater but the production was amazing! The Star Rep singers/actors did an astounding job of keeping the audience in the story even without elaborate backgrounds.
