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!

I saw this show back in the 80's, but this time I was joined by my daughter and grand daughter (who loves singing and wants to be on the stage). It was an absolutely Magical evening. We had dinner in China Town before the show, and after the show met some of the stars at the stage door. Sophie got her picture taken with her idol Carrie who played the role of Eponine plus autographs and pictures and many others. It is her dream to be in Les Mis and play the role of Eponine when she is older.

I am a huge musical theatre fan, and as a 20th birthday present my grandmother decided to book a trip for us both to see my favourite musical of them all, Les Miserables. I was worried as I thought she may be dissapointed with the stage show (she had turned off my concert dvds in boredom many times before) but she loved it almost as much as I did. The cast were excellent, especially Carrie Hope Fletcher as Eponine, and Adam Linstead filling in for Thenardier! My favourite had to be Anton Zetterhom as Enjolras who (as well as being my favourite character) was the closest Enjolras I had seen to the character in the book. Best show, best cast!

I went to see Les Mis in London yesterday, and words cannot describe how incredible it was! Every single actor sang perfectly and it was so much better than i expected. Loved every second of it and even found myself crying! Will be seeing this again. 10/10!

I was already in love with Les Mis after seeing the film but this cast takes it to a whole other level! It was SUPERB! The best performance I have ever seen and it received a standing ovation!

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.
