We came to the matinee show on Weds 27 May. Due to problems with the wheelchair, we were late. The tickets via an agency were no good for a wheelchair user and the manager immediately put us in the dress circle. The staff were very helpful and could not have been more so. The show is amazing and the mechanics of it even more so with props which drop out of the sky and knit like a jigsaw. The singers all had excellent voices and the chorus was all enthusiastic. Well done everyone!

I went to this musical with my mates since my teacher was happy with our performance and wanted to give us a treat. To be honest I really just went because my mates were going and it was going to be the first ever live performance I had seen and who better to watch it with than with your friends. I expected some long boring evening but my God was I blown off my feet. Forget awesome and brilliant there were no words to describe the incredible performance by these actors. It felt like they were performing at their best just for me but I really knew that they would do the same every night with the same gusto which made me really happy since for once I got more than my money's worth. I could actually feel the emotions of the actors emanating from their powerful, clear and majestic voices. It was hard to believe that a person like me would really enjoy this but after you watch it, it would be a sin against God to say that you feel asleep through the play. To conclude this is a must see.Njoy

My wife, daughter and I saw Le Miserables at the Queens theatre on July 16th, 2009. I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the performance. The entire production was brilliant. All the actors, not just the leads were fantastic. We were particularly impressed by the little girl who played the young Cosette. Having volunteered to build sets myself for several local productions, I was very impressed with the sets. In particular, I thought the rotating floor and how it was used was pure genius. Bravo on a job well done.

I just love this show and have seen it at least 30 times. We travel to London from Dublin at least 3 times a year and go to see Les Mis each time. It is such a strong show - it has comedy, sadness fantastic music and lyrics and each time I see it I am amazed by the talented cast. Do not miss it if you are in London. My 13 year old son just loves it as well and I think you could take anyone to see it except perhaps children under 8 as it might be a little too long for them.

Just seen it for the third time and it gets better everytime. Can't wait to see it again. Best production in the West End by far!

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.
