5.0 star rating Geraldine Farrow from Kings Lynn, Norfolk. UK


I have just seen the show for the eighth time. Still makes me cry every time. (July 2014) Current Thenardier's quite different but fantastic. Very impressive Javert and Jean Valjean. All round marvellous. Brought my kids and their partners this time, they all loved it too. Here's to the 50th anniversary.....i'll be there!

Fantastic show, brilliant cast with superb voices. Would definitely recommend it to anyone and will probably go again.

5.0 star rating Jean & Ernie Marsh from Church Stretton, Shropshire


We saw the show most recently on Wednesday 29th May and we were overwhelmed emotionally, as usual, and so impressed with the superb cast and the many little tweaks and innovations since we last saw the show. It is arguably the best version which we have seen over the years, with many notable performances including Jean Valjean, Fantine, the Thenardiers, Cosette and the children. Special mention must be given to Bradley James as Javert with his powerful voice and presence. However the performance of Raymond Walsh in the supporting role of Grantaire was eye-catching with his voice, acting and dancing to match. He really did, in that most abused cliche, make the part his own! Thank you so much for the experience - we will be back!

Attended Sondheim Theatre Sat 5th June 2021. Abit cautious due to Covid restrictions but admission times were staggered by theatre and entrance by specific doors, all manned by several staff to check masks, bags, give advice. Seating was spaced and reminders constantly given to wear face coverings. The show was FANTASTIC. Scenes still acted out whilst singing but distanced as much as possible. This took nothing from the show itself, the quality of the cast singing was amazing, obviously the main characters stood out but even the cast in the 'chorus lines' was an amazing standard and lead by an orchestra that also needs commending as do the lighting and sounds effects guys. The whole show was a joy to watch, was well worth waiting for - it'd been cancelled twice!

Saw this yesterday. Was absolutely blown away with the quality and the sheer passion. I have to confess there were tears. I dare anyone not to be overwhelmingly impressed with this. Definitely going again.

We attended the Sondheim to see Les Miserable on November 5th. One of our party is a disabled person. The support that he and his family received was the best we have experienced. This was entirely due to Sarah Jane (SJ) who was our assigned host. She made our visit stress free enabling us all to enjoy what is an epic performance. Thank you SJ.

Took the family to London for our daughters 16th Birthday and also booked the show. My first time seeing a major West End production. I was blown away . A stunning show.

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.
