‘Les Miserables’ a stirring finale to MTW’s season
Performers, orchestra contribute to making this musical one of Music Theatre’s finest.

BY BOB CURTRIGHT
Wichita Eagle correspondent

Music Theatre of Wichita’s summer finale, “Les Miserables,” is a soul-stirring, goosebump-inducing spectacle that ranks with the best versions I’ve seen on Broadway or London and just may be the best production in MTW’s 37-year history.

Boublil and Schoenberg’s 1985 masterwork, based on the 1842 novel by Victor Hugo about an ill-fated student rebellion in 19th century Paris, has the grandeur and import of opera but the approachability of Broadway. You don’t just see this show, you experience it….

Director Joe Locarro and set designer Bruce Brockman have reinvented the look with a dark, moody street set that proves versatile enough to go from dusty slum to rowdy tavern to elegant wedding to even the drippy Paris sewers — all thanks to clever lighting design by David Neville, who makes good use of a blue back spotlight for individuals to define their various little spheres of influence.
