“The immensely sympathetic Ivan Rutherford handles the role of Valjean with dignified assurance, making even the taxing vocal range from baritone to falsetto seem nearly effortless”.   – Philip Brandes (LA Times)

“Best of all is Ivan Rutherford as the saintly Valjean.  This beefy actor with the cherubic countenance emanates a stately calm and focus that never once wavier and a voice that can rumble like thunder or rise to an otherworldly falsetto”. - Pamela Sommers (Washington Post)

“Ivan Rutherford as Valjean spins out his prayer Bring Him Home in a beautifully supported and shaped voice.  The suspense of his high wire act is released in the longest ovation of the night”.  - Bob Graham/Senior Writer (San Francisco Chronicle)
