What I liked

Terrific cast and killer song selection! Brilliant blend of humor and heft.

What I didn't like

I would have liked to hear the singers more loudly. Is it possible to work with a wireless mic system? The cast is relatively small so the vocal power and volume needed a boost. If the show is being further developed, it could be fun to see more lyrics adaptations and frame Gavroche as a Gen-Zer looking on with horror, determined to join the Millennial crusade because he knows his own plight will be similar.

My overall impression

An absolute blast of a show for anyone who loves Les Miserables and/or hates being a Millennial. LES MILLÉNNIABLES invites you in with winning, earnest performances, hilarious parody and jokes, all of which make you think — and care — about the issues at hand and the human beings grappling with systematic oppression and economic inequality on stage and in real life.
