Depends a bit where you sit in the show? From row A or F it may not look so different. You also have many of the same cast looking at you. One of the interviews has Eddie/Marius talking about how he eventually twigged that the students around him had all played on a les Mis stage and Alistair had actually played his character and could offer him ideas. The casting of everyone but the top leads has been a bit left out of the coverage. it looks as if the quality shows in the ensemble singing, and its going to be really interesting for example to hear the Eponines singing Lovely Ladies and Cosettes and a Matilda singing Turning.One difference I will be interested in is how much its been secularsed, and how it works without so much of its religious overtones.

Marius is Ok? Cosette is as good as a lot of stage Cosettes? Thenardiers are OK and more intelligible than most stage versions ? Valjean is Ok? It sounds much better with the ensemble involved. They needed more ensemble at the end and, like the stage show since 2010, its lacking a big enough soprano high as a finale at the end?
Sam Barks is class.
Javert meanders and isn't at all convincing for me - I would have borrowed Earl Carpenter and cheated there or at least put someone elses vocal track over his after its first outing. .
