 Of all the local productions of "Les Miserables" staged in the Chicago area over the past few years, director Jim Corti's production reinvents the show the most thoroughly and takes the most risks. There is a truly breathtaking, operatic setting from Kevin Depinet, working alongside Jeffrey D. Kmiec. Corti, a maximalist whose ideas just keep spinning here, also finds ways to focus on the theatrics of the individual ballad — now a crucial part of the "Les Miz" appeal. He has two stellar performers in his Fantine, Hannah Corneau, and his Eponine, Lillie Cummings. —Chris Jones
