Special Section B
How was your experience?
THE GOOD: excellent singing, casting, enunciation, musicianship and acting THE BAD: there were several glitches with microphones and a stage hand made an unintended appearance as he turned the barricade around THE UGLY: the glow tape on the floor was easily visible to all of those in the balcony, which was VERY distracting for this period piece that I wanted to lose myself into. Les Miz was an ambitious undertaking, which La Mirada achieved fairly well. At the goldstar price it was quite the bargain and if I hadn't seen at least a dozen other more elaborate productions of Les Miz then I may have overlooked the shortcomings to give this a higher rating. As a goldstar discounted event, I'd rate this a 5 but as a La Mirada theater production I'd rate it a 3, so I'm averaging these as a 4 :-)
