Most critics roll their eyes at this revival of a musical that has enjoyed a Broadway presence for 18 out of the last 27 years. Still, they generally agree that this particular production is pretty decent, even if the story is as melodramatic, and the music as bombastic, as ever. The high marks are mostly due to a near across-the-board admiration for Ramin Karimloo's superb Broadway debut as Jean Valjean; more than a few rave that his restrained rendition of "Bring Him Home" is the best that they've heard. As for the rest of the cast, only Will Swenson as the vengeful Javert receives notable praise; the rest are decidedly hit-and-miss. As for that famous turntable? Critics don't seem to miss it at all.
