ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

I have seen Les Mis many times and in many places, including Broadway and the touring show. This one beats them all. The cast is phenomenal - Jean Valjean was perfect, he nearly brought me to tears with "Bring Him Home". Cosette's voice is stunning, and the entire cast has so much energy and spirit! I am already booking tickets again to bring friends once they come in town. While the show IS 3 hours long, the time flies by and when it's over you look at your watch and wonder where the time went! It does have some "more adult" scenes that might be a bit uncomfortable with small kids (though I first saw the show as a child, and fell in love with it - not to mention most of those scenes went straight over my head - so I wouldn't worry too much). This is by far my favourite performance I have been to in the West End. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it!

FIRST AND BEST PERFOMANCE EVER SEEN!!!

I went to this musical with my mates since my teacher was happy with our performance and wanted to give us a treat. To be honest I really just went because my mates were going and it was going to be the first ever live performance I had seen and who better to watch it with than with your friends. I expected some long boring evening but my God was I blown off my feet. Forget awesome and brilliant there were no words to describe the incredible performance by these actors. It felt like they were performing at their best just for me but I really knew that they would do the same every night with the same gusto which made me really happy since for once I got more than my money's worth. I could actually feel the emotions of the actors emanating from their powerful, clear and majestic voices. It was hard to believe that a person like me would really enjoy this but after you watch it, it would be a sin against God to say that you feel asleep through the play. To conclude this is a must see.Njoy

STILL AMAZING AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS

What a fantastic and powerful performance by cast and orchestra. My husband and I saw Les Mis at the Palace Theatre in London 22 years ago. Then we were seated in the front row and had a blast during the pub scene right in front of us. This time our 14 year old daughter had chosen Les Mis because she wanted to see Carrie Fletcher play the adult Eponine. She is following her on Twitter and she used to play young Eponine when she was 8 years old, so that is very special and she was amazing and has the most beautiful voice en presence. We both cried when she died and cheered the loudest for her when the show finished. What a fantastic set and amazing circle stage turning around. Also the barricades connecting from both sides was incredible and we had a great view from the stalls seats looking straight at the top. It was the highlight of our London trip and an unforgettable experience for our daughter. MANY THANKS!

OCTOBER 2013

Having seen the Film Twenty Fifth Anniversary show which I rate as Five star + Unfortunately the Stage show in October was very disappointing. The sound I thought was very poor. The cast were not as good as I expected. them to be I thought very below par. Which is a shame as we had looked forward to seeing the stage for so long. Pity there were NO Real Headliners or really known to me. The Leading roles were not up to par.

LES MIS REVIEW 8TH DEC

This is the second time I have seen Les Mis this year and again it was thoroughly enjoyable. Best voice for me is David Thaxton as Enjolras and favourite scene is the signing of 'Red and Black' where the students sing about the situation in the land and Marius about his newfound love. The only downside was the orchestra speeding up 'Master of the House' to a point where Jimmy Johnston could barely keep up. A special mention also goes to Matthew Gent who played Marius. Well done Matt! Uncle R.

What we thought

Revolutionary jaw dropping ICONIC.

The world has embraced 'Les Mis' with both arms.

As the first trumpet sounded and the curtain rose I was sucked into 19th century France along with the inner turmoil of our hero Jean Valjean, played by the fantastic Killian Donnelly. We watch as Valjean progresses from lowly thief to the highl
