GREAT SHOW BUT UNCOMFORTABLE THEATRE SPOILT IT

This is the 7th time I have seen Les Mis and this has got to be the best performance, with the exception of 25th anniversary at the O2. Unfortunately the ambient temperature of the theatre was so hot it made more than half the group of 40 i was with feel unwell. The seats were uncomfortable it totally ruined the experience. I love the musical but I do not think I will return to the queens theatre

LATECOMERS ADMITTED!

The musical was excellent. A great theatre too. Only sour point was the Management allowing 30 latecomers to be seated 20 minutes into the first half of the performance. Ruined a key part of the plot.

POOR PERFORMANCE OF JEAN VALJEAN

Having seen Les Mis 6 times over many years I felt the latest show was let down by Peter Lockyer playing Jean Valjean. This is the major role in the play and although his acting was good his voice is weak compared with his predecessors. The rest of the cast compared favourably with earlier shows.

HEARING IMPAIRED

the show was excellent but the equipment for the hearing impaired is old and useless the loop band is not compatible with digital hearing aids and the head phones you have to take your aid out to use them, and although they did help everyone around you complained because the noise was interfering with them. very embarassing to say the least.

BOXED OUT BY THE BOX OFFICE

A relative had booked us 3 tickets. 2 of us were waiting outside the theatre for said relative. He was stuck in traffic (The Pope was in town)and called the theatre to put the tickets in my name. One person of the box office said there were no tickets...that the tickets were gone. Just after the show started one of the other box office employees suddenly remembered that tickets had been put into another name. My name thus. This he announced in a very 'so wanna-be an actor' manner. Not very profesional. And certainly not good acting!

LES MISERABLES

Went to see the show 20/1/10. Some aspects were very impressive. Scenery and lighting were very good and contributed to atmosphere. Choral vocals good but principles very average with exception of Eponie and Maruis who were better.Vocal dynamics rather odd in places. Felt some characters were playing against the clock and not giving their all. Javert though acted well and had presence- believable- as was Eponie. Rather dissappointed overall, along with quite a few fellow audience members around us. Son was in a production of this at school and my niece in an amateur production -so knew the show well and was really looking forward to it. It made me realise how good the school production had been as aspects of it were better than this performance. Orchestrally an electric something or other grated in several poignant places and detracted from dramatic pleasure.

OCTOBER 2013

Having seen the Film Twenty Fifth Anniversary show which I rate as Five star + Unfortunately the Stage show in October was very disappointing. The sound I thought was very poor. The cast were not as good as I expected. them to be I thought very below par. Which is a shame as we had looked forward to seeing the stage for so long. Pity there were NO Real Headliners or really known to me. The Leading roles were not up to par.

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.
