INCREDIBLE CAST, IMMACULATE LIGHTING, BEAUTIFUL SETTING AND A STORY THAT JUST PULLS YOU IN!

I saw Les Misérables a couple weeks ago at the Sondheim Theatre. My mom and I decided to watch it on a whim when we saw the queue. I've been a big musical and Les Misérables fan for ages, but I had never seen a musical live before, I only knew all the songs by heart. But it was incredible! The images created, the sound, the vocals, the overall setting; everything was absolutely stunning and breathtaking. I cried nearly constantly because I was so moved. Especially during my favourite song, "One Day More", I got so emotional. The actors were incredible and really pulled you into the story to the point where the entire audience got engulfed by their voices and acting. But if I had to point out one star of the show, I'd have to go with the lighting. The usage of spotlights, colours and mist were so immaculately used, it seemed as if you were watching a Hollywood movie on the big screen. The pictures and images created were absolutely stunning! Thank you to everyone who worked on this!

SOUNDTRACK 07-08

My family really enjoyed the Les Mis cast from 2007-2008 at Queens Theatre, especially Cassie Compton. We were trying to find the soundtrack featuring the the 07-08 cast, but so far to no avail. Where can we find/purchase it? There are couple of On My Own's featuring Cassie Compton, but the one we liked had poor audio quality.

AMAZING!

I went to see this at the end of august. Having seen only the recorded anniversary concerts and fallen in love with them, finally getting to go to the live performance was incredible. I cried so many times, everyone's voices were brilliant, even my least favourite song (a heart full of love) was sung beautifully. A little fall of rain absolutely killed me, I sobbed all the way back to the hotel. I have been singing all of the songs for months. The only reason I haven't put 5 is nothing to do with the performance. It's the fact that I would have loved to have seen Valjean be played by Alfie Boe.:)I highly recommend this to anyone who loves the songs. It is an emotional roller coaster all the way through. Even my 13 year old sister who isn't a fan of musicals cried and loved it. It's so worth it. You will never forget. It's a must see. There's a reason it's been going for 27 years :)

BRILLIANT!

A fantastic show! Although the story line is sad at many points, the amazing music, acting, and occasional humour makes this show a must see. Book tickets now! Orchestra and cast are incredible, as well as the stage set up. Might be useful to see the 2012 film first, as that is also splendid!

NICK JONAS

NICK JONAS - WHO CHOSE HIM? PATHETIC WEAK PERFORMANCE. COULD NOT SING NOR ACT WAS OBVIOUSLY SUPPORTED BY OTHER CAST MEMBERS, AT TIMES LOOKED LOST ON STAGE.

COULD BE BETTER

Being a Les Mis fan, our family of four went to the Queen's on 27th Dec to see the westend production. Again, the music and the story are so memorable, but some of the cast were disappointing. Fantine and Cosette were weak. It appeared that the actress playing Cosette didn't have the strong soprano voice to hit the high note. And some of the scenes felt rushed, especially at the beginning. I felt that more effort could have been made to make it a top notch production.

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.
