    'When done well, Les Mis is one of the most memorable and potent musical theatre experiences one can encounter, and under the direction of Luke Joslin, this is Packemin’s most accomplished musical presentation to date.'

    'It is faithful to its origins and evidences painstaking endeavours by Joslin and his team to ensure no detail in the intricate and evermoving narrative is lost.' ★★★★
