5 Les Misérables National Tour Favorites at The Fabulous Fox

The Les Misérables National Tour has arrived in St. Louis at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. Widely known as one of the most celebrated musicals it has quite the theatrical history dating back to the 1980’s. The backdrop is that of 19th-century France where people had big dreams of rising out of obscurity, changing their course of life and the story has become a testament that can be related to by any era. Despite all the misery that can be bestowed on one’s life, the human spirit is something that can ultimately survive. That’s always a reminder each time I see this fabulous musical.

Les Misérables National Tour Review

New Production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-Winning Musical

The first city I ever saw Les Miserables in was London. My husband and I attended a matinee and were able to sit in the THIRD ROW. Wow. That was an epic experience for sure. We were close enough to stage to see the actor’s spit as they projected their voices. Last night I got to take my oldest son to opening night of the Les Miserables national tour at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. It was the first time for him to see it and he was impressed. Which is really saying something because he’s a teenager and doesn’t give me much of a response about things!

Always love seeing the world’s most popular musicals at The Fabulous Fox for opening night.

Les Miz

One of the greatest musicals of all time, Les Miz (as it’s called by fans) tells the story of a man who went to prison for stealing a loaf of bread and all the lives that he came in contact with. From the police inspector who spent his life seeking his idea of a convict to a factory girl who had a life of tragedy to the rescue of her young daughter to the young couple in love to the students who were fighting for change, Jean , It can be said that all those lives were part of his full-circle moment due to the choice made by a man of God that undoubtably changed the course of Jean’s life. Perhaps the reason it’s so well loved is due to the fact that it consists of so many different complex characters.

The test of time doesn’t change the fact that this blockbuster musical Even if you’ve seen it before, every time is like new. It’s a musical with so much emotion and you are sure to see something new each time you see it. Sometimes there are lulls in shows with extra content that’s just thrown in as filler, but with this musical there’s no additional material or fluff. There is a reason behind everything and it all works together to create a masterpiece.

Favorite Song

The magnificent score of Les Misérables is breathtaking. So many beloved songs that are recognized all over the world. On My Own is my very favorite. It really tugs at the emotions and gives a feeling of connectivity with the character.

Favorite Character

It’s so hard to pick a favorite, because as I mentioned before they are all just so good and that’s why I think this musical is so popular. Last night I found myself thinking Fantine is so now my new favorite. But ultimately my very favorite is Éponine. So much heartache and yet she still stayed positive even to the very end. I think it tends to be the favorite character is the one that you connect with from the memory of the first show watched and for me that was, and will always be from when I saw the show in London.

Favorite Set Piece

Brilliant staging is done to create so many different locations in old France. My favorite set piece are the screens that allow for the visual effect, both the cast marching into battle and Jean Valjean moving through the tunnels under the city while carrying Marius on his back. The level of expert choreography that goes into timing the steps just right is all in part with that set piece.

Favorite Moment

While I love everything about this enthralling story, the part that always gets me is when the cast comes together to march into revolution. So much strength and surety in their faces. Gives me chills every time. Dare I say this is the best national tour I’ve ever seen of Les Misérables? It is.

Favorite Snack

Of course my snack of choice would be a diet soda since it fits perfectly with one of the beloved musical songs. This collector glass comes with discounted refills at just $3. Perfect for when you attend shows all season long!
