Jacob Waid, The Prizery’s “Jean Valjean” in its current production of “Les Miserables,” is big in too many ways for an audience to ignore — 6-feet tall, huge expressive eyes, a monumental baritone, and, yes, “presence,” the kind that has already provided him with a ticket to Broadway and an audition for “Phantom of the Opera” in August.
