4.0 out of 5 stars not as gd as it SHOULD have been!, 18 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Les Miserables - The 25th Anniversary in Concert at the O2 [DVD] (DVD)
First off, u have seen Les Miserables live and its the first "Modern" musical I really got into, thanks to the 10th anniversary concert performed at the Albert Hall in 1995. Unfortunately, this production pales in comparison. Don't get me wrong, some performers are out standing but on the whole, I don't think the producers got this one right. Too many pop stars and unknowns. Original cast members reduced to cameos when they probably could've had principal roles. The O2 (a venue I go to regularly and adore) too large. This should've been a proper staging rather than a concert. It would've had more impact I think. I still wish id actually been there though! Luckily I got to see both Alfie Boe and Matt Lucas in the london production earlier this year and they both owned the performance. If only Ramin Karimloo hadn't been doing Love Never Dies! as much as I like Les Mis, ill still go back to the Albert Hall 10th Anniversary Concert (Colm Wilkinson, Phillip Quast, Ruthie Henshall, micheal Ball, Lea Salonga what more could u want?). Mr Mackintosh, take a lesson from the 25th Anniversary of Phantom of the Opera - actually perform it in a smaller venue with a proper musical theatre cast!

Fair review, would like to point out that "Mr Mackintosh" did also produce the 25th Anniversary of Phantom of the Opera! ;)
