Les Misérables has been on stage for twenty-nine years. It is the longest running musical on the West End and has won more awards than can be listed here. More people have seen the musical worldwide than the entire population of the UK. A lot more. Les Misérables tickets are still selling out and the cast continues to play to a packed house. The enduring brilliance of this now legendary musical cannot be denied.
Adapted from the novel by Victor Hugo, Les Misérables is an epic tale of love lost and found, sacrifice, redemption and the human spirit. The action is set in nineteenth-century revolutionary France where ex-convict Jean Valjean has been hunted for decades by the merciless policeman Javert after he breaks his parole. However, when Valjean takes on the care of Cosette, the young daughter of factory worker Fantine, everything changes.
With music composed by Claude-Michel Schönberg and libretto by Alain Boubil, this is a sung-through musical of extraordinary imaginative power and musical prowess. Now at London’s Queens Theatre, the sets and costumes add to the incredible sense of drama and scale. The frenetic revolutionary setting is truly brought to life and the stirring music, with songs including ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ and ‘Do You Hear the People Sing’, is given a fitting space in which to thrill and move the audience.

Latest critic reviews
At the Queen’s Theatre, the longest-running musical in the West End shows no sign of neglect. The “house full” signs were up and there was a standing ovation the night I attended… In all key respects, Trevor Nunn’s original RSC staging has stood the test of time well: the revolve whirls tirelessly, lending a cinematic fluidity to a bustling, beautifully lit spectacle which, using John Napier’s pile-it-high design and tons of dry ice, memorably evokes the 1832 Paris uprising, when the downtrodden masses (some of them) protested against the monarchy of Louis-Philippe. With its emphasis on poverty and injustice, mood of angry disillusion and yearning for redemption, it may be that the through-sung piece speaks more to our own troubled age than it did to the Eighties...
