Over the past four seasons, Studio Tenn has wowed audiences with dazzling designs and impeccably staged musicals. And this weekend’s production of “Les Misérables” promises to do the same, with a star-studded cast backed by a live orchestra and a 146-voice choir — all presented in Nashville’s gorgeous Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
So it was with great interest that I sat down to observe Friday evening’s rehearsal at the company’s new space at The Factory in Franklin. I had braced myself for a rather bare-bones approach — after all, this was still a rehearsal. But even without artistic director Matt Logan’s richly detailed designs, without the benefit of the Schermerhorn’s perfectly balanced acoustics (bot)or even the use of microphones, I can assure audiences that this is one of the finest productions of “Les Mis” you’ll ever see.
