Broadway Review: LES MISÉRABLES

If you watch most theatre critics sitting in an audience, it would seem we are taking our job very seriously. We have good poker faces. If you watch, you won't see us applaud much, and if we do, it will be a polite, gentle applause; and we certainly don't stand up at the end (except to see around other patrons). That wasn't the case with this critic and the latest Broadway revival of Les Misérables.
