I saw Les Mis yesterday for the 4th time. It was the third time I have taken a coach party. I had 2 coaches yesterday (110 tickets) and that makes 5 coaches over the years. I just adore the show and the seats (I was sitting in row L)were superb with plenty of leg room. Just one comment though which I can't be the first to mention. You must be aware that anyone who has ever walked down Shaftesbury Avenue and is then faced in a pub quiz with the old chestnut long running stock question "What is the Worlds Longest Running Musical?" would immediately answer Les Mis as that is what it says above the entrance. And then of course they all get it wrong because The Fantasticks which ran for 42 years on Broadway is a rather longer run than 24 years in London. How do you square that advertising claim of the WORLDS longest running Musical with the trade descriptions Act?

I have seen Les Mis many times and have the Royal Albert Hall Anniversary DVD, l`m in my 60's but the passion, and the sheer magnitude of this musical always makes me cry, it`s just wonderful

I am a regular theatre-goer and have seen many, many shows, but Les Miserables has to be my all time favourite show. I have lost count the number of times I have seen it but it still moves me like no other show does. It is dramatic, it is funny, but above all it contains songs that stay with you long after the curtain falls. 54 million people have seen the show worldwide and its no wonder it has become a such a phenomena.

I first saw Les Mis in 1987 and was dreading going but didn't want to let my parents down as they had paid for the tickets. How glad I am that my conscience got the better of me because it was, and is, a truly wonderful experience. The only negative is that, following Les Mis, I saw Phantom, Miss Saigon and other big name productions and was disapointed in each and every one of them. None compared in terms of story, quality of music, lyrics or atmosphere. I'm on the site to book to see it again - for the 23rd time! (yes, it really is that good!)

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.
