The barricades have once again gone up on Broadway.The well-traveled "Les Miserables" has rolled into town for its third bite at the Broadway apple -- not to mention fresh off a celebrated 2012 film -- but there's nothing tiresome about its gloomy, aching heartbeat.Producer Cameron Mackintosh was sold on reviving the show after learning that set designer Matt Kinley was inspired by the paintings of Hugo, which are often brooding, eerie and romantic.Karimloo, a Mackintosh favorite in London, makes a tremendous Broadway debut, starting out as a feral, muscular animal out of chains and leaving an unsteady old man in grace.There is a cinematic quality to this production -- though it predates the Tom Hooper film version -- that includes fast scene changes and even the title superimposed on the back wall, in case we needed reassurance which show was on.
