I wish I had time to go see this show. I saw it 10 or 15 years ago, whenever it was on Broadway, I guess that was the mid-1990s. Sure, so the movie just came out and it’s getting great reviews. I still don’t think there’s anything like live theater. For me, it’s not even comparing apples to apples. Movies and live theater and just so different that I don’t think a movie can ever compare to seeing it live.
And once again, we are so lucky to have it coming here to Philadelphia. After the holiday season, it can be sort of a letdown–you know, with all your parties and events coming to a screeching halt. So why not give yourself something to look forward to, and something as cool as seeing Les Mis live! Whether it’s your first time seeing it live or you are seeing it again, it’s a great show, one that you won’t forget.
To get tickets, just visit the Academy of Music website. If Les Mis doesn’t fit into your schedule, check out what else they have to offer. I saw the Nutcracker a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. I’m going to go see Cirque Eloize iD tomorrow and I’ve heard great things about that too. And seeing a live show doesn’t have to break the bank, tickets start at $25. Or, check out Kimmel Center Presents.
