Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...This accomplished and reorchestrated 25th-anniversary production lacks surprise, but delivers on most of its promises. It's big. It's loud. The singing is good. You will probably cry. You will go home and watch Susan Boyle sing "I Dreamed a Dream" on YouTube again and realize Simon Cowell would be dead on as Javert in the movie version now in pre-production."

Backstage - Highly Recommended

"...Some purists will complain that the legendary turntable set from the original production of this international mega-musical is gone. Yet Laurence Connor and James Powell, co-directors of the 25th-anniversary revival tour, keep the story and music spinning with renewed vigor and panache, giving the perennially popular epic a new lease on life. In helming this gorgeous and stirring revisit, fresh touches are highlighted by Matt Kinley's wonderfully picturesque sets. They are inspired by Victor Hugo's paintings and highlighted by marvelous projected images, shown to optimum advantage by Paule Constable's ravishing lighting effects. The production's evocative visual style ensures an elegant classical feel."

Les Spindle - Highly Recommended

"...The cast for this tour was first rate. J Mark McVey played Jean Val jean. As an actor he has performed the role several thousand times but he performed it as if it were the first time. Fantine was magnificently performed by Betsy Morgan. Shawna M. Hamic (who was in the huge 25th production at O2) was in top form and Michael Kostroff as her slimy, but funny, husband joined her. Jeremy Hays was formidable as Enjolras. Justine Scott Brown and Jenny Latimer were the lovers whose plight always brings on the tears. Andrew W. Varela made a powerful Javert."
