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!

5.0 star rating DHS from London,


Saw the show for the 3rd time of 2013 last Thursday. I know all the lyrics, all the movements. The show never ever disappoints. I seen the understudy of Valjean Mr chris Holland twice and Geronimo Rauch once both are exceptional. The outstanding Tam Mutu as Javert, the stunning Danielle Hope as Eponine. From the very first beat the music is so impactive. I think I need to see it again (for the 32nd time) with the beautiful Carrie Fletcher playing Eponine

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

Les Mis at Queens Theatre was great. Nick Jonas was amazing and impressive as Marius, with a powerful voice and excellent acting skills. He made the show for me. I would recommend anyone to go and see this show. We also had a great view in the stalls.

I went to see Les Mis on Wednesday with my husband, I was lucky enough to have see it twice before but my husband had never seen it before but had heard the music before, What can I say It was just amazing, I have never known 3 hours go so quick, you get lost in the show and believe all what they are singing, I will go and see it again hopfully soon

Brilliant performance. I have been a fan of the musical for years and was completely blown away, and in tears by the finale. To me, Javert stood out the most. He was so convincing and left me with chills. I will be definitely telling my friends to check out Les Miz next time they're in London.

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.
