I have seen the show on stage a few times. It seemed that each time, the show got just a little bit
more trashy, especially with the portrayal of Thernardier. But this version brought back the class that the musical deserves. I went without knowing who the cast was--believe it or not. I was completely surprised to realize that it was Hugh Jackman playing Val Jean after about 20-25 minutes. I didn't recognized at first. His voice was fantastic. As was Anne Hathaway. Her portrayal of Fantine was spot on. I do think they could have found someone better to play Javert. While Russell Crowe is a great actor, he is NOT Javert. He didn't have a strong enough voice, and he didn't portray his passion for the law and his disdain for a fugitive like Val Jean. I especially found his portrayal of the inner turmoil at the end very weak. Other than Russell, I don't think they could have done better for any other part. Anyone who is any sort of a fan MUST see this version.
