"This gripping new version remains true to the original story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his relentless pursuit by "law and order" police inspector Javert. Filled with fascinating vignettes of nineteenth-century France, the script boasts a brilliant cast of characters who weave an exciting tapestry of human kind at its best and worst. Special emphasis has been placed on the many small roles and female characters - the tragic Fantine and her daughter Cosette, the wretched Madame Thenardier, the lovelorn Eponine - among many others. Visually exciting, emotionally powerful, this is imaginative theatre with a capital "T".'
