I have seen various productions of les mis and this one was definitely one of the best... The cast were all fantastic and fully committed to their role!! Val jean was awesome, as was javert and marius and just about all of them! Queens theatre was clean and friendly and I would definite revisit. Go on, treat yourself!

I had heard the music before, and was excited to see the show live. I was enthralled from the first note. The singing was beautiful, acting was fabulous. The greatest performance of any type that I have ever seen.

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

I had seen the show before at a larger theatre many years ago, I took my wife on 13 October 2012. The Queens theatre is so intimate and for me made the performance very special. The stage effects and performance of all the cast was sublime and extraordinary, it was electric. I could not remember to much of the first time I saw this show simple because I think it was at a much larger theatre and you probably loose the intimacy. This show was truly outstanding a must see and bring plenty of tissues..!! All of the performances were incredible and so believable and in several scenes I was was an emotional wreck especially when Jean Viljean started Bring him home it was beautiful. A huge thank you to the cast and crew for a memorable day and can't wait to go again

I saw a lot of Musicals but this one was really the best. Congratulations to this cast and the responsile people. Without using a lot of effects and reduced to the wonderful music presented by the best singers and actors. This is musical at its best. Thanks a lot for these moments.

5.0 star rating Anna from London,


The performance was spectacular. I have read the book and I must admit that the musical exceeded my expectations - it managed to capture the main events and make them even more emotionally charged. If you are an emotional person bring tissues with you because I sure cried. One of my friends admitted seeing the musical on Broadway and he said that the actors here were better. I agree with this statement. We were able to struggle with Fantine, grow as a better person along with Jean Valjean, feel an unrequited love and suffer through the death of people we love. Even the evil characters were played by marvelous actors. They were so good that we grew to hate them - the Tenardiers were even BOOED at the end. This musical has everything love, loss and tragedy but still leaves you with hope and you leave with a lighter soul. Totally worth seeing a time or 10. To tell you the truth even now I am listening to the soundtrack, so it is definitely a seven-star production.

I went to see the show yesterday. It was the 4th time I've seen it, though it had been a while since my 3rd. I have to say I was "re-blown away" by the show. The singing was simply phenomenal, especially "I Dream a Dream", "Who Am I?", "Empty Chairs At Empty Table" and of course "Do You Hear The People Sing". Well done to all the cast.

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.
