    Dennis St Pierre playing the role of Jean Valjean In Les Mis is a match made in Heaven. A role that Dennis portrays exquisitely! He has been compared to the sound of a baby’s first cry. The sight of a loon on a lake. And the touch of a lover or friend. Dennis’s performance as Jean Valjean is magical and nothing short of fantastic! Rarely, does life offer a moment in time, almost still like, with a sensation that lights your heart and lifts your soul.

    Dennis is one of our Maine boys(Lewiston) who’ve hit the big time. I’ve known him for many years and saw him in the August run of Les Miserables at Maine State Music Theatre, near my home. This role, he agreed with me after the performance, has to be the epitome of his career. If I had the time I’d fly to Colorado to see him do it again; he is magnificent as Jean Valjean and y’all should not miss the production.
