I went to see it on Tuesday. Unfortunately it left me very underwhelmed. I saw this cast back in July and didn't partially like them so decided to wait until the addition of some fresh blood before a return visit. I enjoyed Christopher Jacobsen a lot when I saw him as Valjean last year and I think he will do well once he comes to grips with the part, although during the parts on the barricade I think he needs to make to character stronger. He seemed to give in after Éponine's death. He needs to be the example and die fighting in what he first set out to do, the one thing he believes in and would sacrifice his, and his friends, lives to preserve. I think if he just does that one thing he would be great. He is already 'a rose amongst thorns' in this company, I just need a little more. I wish I could have been more positive. I am considering a return visit to see how Christopher settles into the role, I believe he will. I really hope everyone else will follow suit.
