Les Miserables Manila

So this Saturday, we went to see the musical play ‘Les Miserables’ at The Theatre in Solaire Resort and Casino in Manila.

We got the cheapest seats but Solaire’s theater has a well thought out seating design that, even at our area on the balcony, we could still clearly see and appreciate what’s happening on stage, unlike the time we watched ‘Wicked’ in CCP, where we couldn’t fully see the back of the stage and our view was obstructed by a big set piece.

Going back to Les Mis. The show we saw had all the primary cast, including Rachel Ann Go.

Of course, she was amazing. Her singing voice is still not 100% broadway material since there were moments when we clearly heard her sing like a popstar, but her performance was amazing. She had one of the best vocals among the female casts and her singing has improved since she transferred to Les Mis from Miss Saigon.

As expected, the musical play is not really family-friendly since there were some scenes not suitable for children below 12 years old like their penile references. They were funny but I’m not sure it’s a play for kids in their formidable years should see. And the story was quite boring, too. It took me 3 months to finish watching the movie adaptation of Les Mis because I always fell asleep while watching it at home. But the story needs a little more energy and humor to pick the pace up.

Would I recommend it? Of course! It’s a broadway classic with an impeccable story line and catchy songs!
