Understudy Linda Pierson Huff does an admirable while not especially impresssive job with the role of Fantine. A distracting element was the fact that the director chose to take Fantine's money song "I Dreamed a Dream" and have the poor girl's back to the audience for the first quarter of this great song. Similarly, the staging and execution of Javert's "Soliloquy" not only lacks emotion but ends with Javert literally stepping over the railing to the floor in a "stop, drop and roll" your way to death off the stage, which was very visible from my front orchestra seat. Ma-Anne Dionisio plays Eponine with passion and spunk and nails "On My Own" as well as any other actress that has played this popular role. The ensamble is strong and knocks out impressive renditions of "One Day More" and "Do You Hear The People Sing" In fact the entire score is offered with great articulation and clarity, which is well appreciated for a musical that is mostly sung.

So the legend lives on and is in good overall shape. After all, this is Les Miserables!
