A classic musical, truly an epic!
The score is simply wonderful, from rousing anthems to touching love ballads. This was one of the first musicals I was lucky enough to see, and I saw it again last year and it is still wonderful after 30 years. It follows the heart-warming and heart-breaking story of a man wrongly accused and imprisoned who escapes and sets about creating a new life for himself. On this journey, pursued by a dogged inspector throughout, he encounters both good and evil, and even finds love.
Affectionately known as "Les Mis", the story is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and is woven with many rich and at times amusing characters. It reminds me of one of those old black-and-white films I used to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon, in which I always ended up crying at the end. But with this show, you also get the magic of so many brilliant songs, including the fantastic I Dreamed A Dream.
Seen by more than 70 million people in 44 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, it is still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 31st year.

- Les Miserables is a truly brilliant show. You will be transported along the incredible journey of Jean Valjean. Don't forget to take some tissues with you.
- We'd recommend that this show isn't really suitable for taking along children under 12; the plot is quite intricate, as befits a musical adapted from a French novel.
- If you're not familiar with the storyline, it's definitely worth reading the summary beforehand. It won't spoil the show and it will help you understand who is who. This is useful because the characters are often dressed very similarly.
- Alternatively, try to arrive early and take a look at the programme, so you don't miss out during the fast-paced show.
- It's a deeply dramatic story and runs for 3 hours - make sure you take a trip to the toilet before the show starts, so nothing distracts you from enjoying the powerful performances right until the end. There is an interval, though..
This is my all-time favourite show, I must have seen it five or six times and it only gets better every time I go. The music and storyline are highly moving and powerful, you can’t but help to get completely drawn in. If your budget can stretch to it I’d recommend going for the better seats in the Stalls or Dress Circle to be able to take in the full spectacle.
"What’s really memorable is its sheer passion and pace. Doomy-gloomy through-sung musicals aren’t usually my thing, but there are many moments that send shivers of excitement racing down the spine, others when it is overwhelmingly moving. The composer Claude-Michel Schönberg is an absolute master when it comes to the knockout power ballad."
“The metaphysical struggle between the former convict Jean Valjean and the pursuing policeman Javert is a very real and dramatic one. I always think the sign of any good theatre adaptation is when it sends you straight to the library for a copy of the novel. This does, and it sends you there singing loudly.”
