Les Miserables Tickets
What's it all about?
The West End's longest running musical, Les Miserables, continues to delight audiences at the Queen's Theatre and celebrated its 30th anniversary in October 2015. Based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo, Les Mis is regularly voted the world's most popular musical and has been translated into dozens of languages and mounted countless productions all over the world.
The original London productionor Les Miserables continues to run in the West End, directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird based on the iconic RSC production along with fresh orchestrations, updated designs and an incredible cast of performers.
Les Mis has already reached iconic status with theatre goers around the world, thanks to the popularity of the timeless score that includes hits such as “I Dreamed a Dream”, “On My Own” and “Do You Hear the People Sing?” and of course the blockbuster film adaptation starring Hugh Jackman. Despite the continued popularity of the show, the original production is a must see for theatre fans, and there is no better time to experience the revolution live than in its record breaking thirtieth year.
What's the story?
Les Miserables tells an epic sweeping tale of one man's struggle to break free from a past life and create a new life for himself and his surrogate daughter in post-Revolutionary France where discontent amongst the students boils over to create a powerful story of fraternity, equality and freedom.
Released on parole after years on the chain gang for stealing a loaf of bread, Jean Valjean has a religious awakening, leading to him turning his life around. After he shows kindness to Fantine, she leaves her child Cosette in his care as she dies and the two build a new life together, leading to Valjean breaking his parole. Inspector Javert swears he'll have vengeance and devotes his life to tracking him down.
As the student unrest stirs, a young revolutionary Marius falls in love with the now teenage Cosette, but Valjean plans to move away from Paris, until an explosive moment in history and the people of the city are brought together to fight for the right to be free.

Les Miserables reviews - staff
Les Mis has everything - raw emotional performances, a gritty plot and some great moments of comedy provided by Monsieur and Madame Thenardier. It is filled with hit musical numbers - many of the greatest show songs are featured here. Whether you're an avid theatregoer or are experiencing the delights of the West End for the first time, Les Mis is one of those shows everybody just has to see at least once in their lifetime.
I saw it as a birthday treat and can easily call it one of the best shows the West End has to offer. It may not seem like the best material for a musical - orphans, oppression, revolutionary battles, death - but there are so many layers of story. As for its music, it was one soundtrack that I bought and listened to on a loop for weeks! Les Mis really is a perfect night at the theatre.
Brilliant Set design, story line and character performances. A spectacular show!
A moving, but funny musical throughout. An emotional rollercoaster from start to finish.

How can you not love Les Miserables? Although this show clearly is a classic I didn't expect such a great staging and production. The ensenble was amazing and you guys, never let that Jean Valjean go, he's a keeper.
