ent to Les Mis last night (23 June 2011) to see opening night at Queens theatre. Saw original production on third night.
This new cast and orchestra are right up there with the original! Will write more shortly. However...
Alfie Boe - extraordinary! Bring him home is the best ever... as good as Calum!
Hadley Fraser - have not seen a Javert so strong, and opposite Boe, extraordinary! Stars was the best i have ever heard! Right up there with Philip Quast! but probably better...
Katy Secombe -so funny and so glad that Matt Lucas could keep up with her!
Craig Mather - without a doubt the best Marius i have seen...
Liam Tamne - quite brilliant...
Lisa-Anne Wood - delightful!
Alexia Khadime - wow!
Caroline Sheen - you just got better and better... hearing "I dreamed a dream" sung by you made you understand why Britain has talent...
Words cannot express the atmosphere last night... this was up there with the great Les Mis performances and left the O2 standing... and the RHH 10th...
Let me end on the orchestra... brilliant! - iain

Fantastic! Every one of the cast were brilliant. John Owen Jones' voice was just amazing - gave me goosebumps! Gareth Gates was also brilliant. I would love to see it again!

Absolutely fantastic. So much better than the West End version. Loved Gareth Gates as Marius. John Owen Jones and Earl Carpenter both fab! One of the best musicals ever - Susan

Brilliant. People of Edinburgh, you are in for a treat! Gareth Gates is the ideal Marius. He has the looks, the voice and the acting spot on. I also much liked Rosalind James as Eponine but they were all good! - Emily Preston
