When coming to Queen's Theatre yesterday, I was not particularly sure what to expect, I came on a College trip and the other trips we had gone on were not so good, but I was pleasantly suprised, extremely so in fact. The performance of Les Miserable was nothing but pure genious, it was unbelievably inspiring and so extraordinarily beautiful that it wasn't long before I was sobbing. The settings are fantastic, aswell as the lighting and music, the singing was completely phenominal, the cast so completely believable that I was able to be absorbed from my current state into the world that was being brought to the stage, they were brilliant and everything about it brought back to me my long lost love for theatre. I strongly recommend that anyone who hasn't yet seen it most definately should as it was so very dramatic aswell as comical, the story is fantastic and I left the theatre with nothing my fantastic remarks to say about it.

I to had a dream,and on July 11,2009 arrived in London from New Orleans,the following Wednesday I went to the Queens Theater to follow that dream and see LesMiserables,now almost a year later I am still singing the music in my head,Now I am 74 and dreaming one day going back to London and see my beloved Les Miserables once again, Who knows if I ever get there,but the magic I experienced will last all the days of my life, Thank you cast,crew,orchestra,and all who brought my dream alive.JoanRussellGilkes

Les Mis rocks. I am glad I did not miss the production when I went to London in March. The production crew made great use of the stage and the cast was fantastic. Jean Valjean's tenor voice brought out a hauntingly beautiful Bring Him Home. Eponine's mezzo-soprano was painfully bittersweet in her On My Own. And Cosette's soprano hit all the right notes. The amazing score and lyrics moved me so much I cried so many times. Kudos too to the orchestra. A brilliant musical and not to be missed.

I have now seen Les Mis 30 times, the last one being Fri 14th May 2010. I saw it 20 times at the Palace theatre and 10 now at the Queens. This passion has been on-going since 1990. I have seen Miss Saigon and Phantom, Aspects all into double figures, but Les Mis is the Daddy of them all. The most memorable performance was on the evening of Sat 27 March 2004. That was the Final Performance at the Palace Theatre. Every scence change commanded rapturous applause, and at the end, it was like being at a Cup Final, everyone was going crazy. I still get that same buzz every time those first notes play. Any other Les Mis nuts out there? Chris G

The reason is that 25 years ago, it was booked for the first 4 years, then after that it was 2 years, 18 months, 12 months etc., by which time I had moved to Wiltshire. My two daughters bought me tickets for the production on Saturday June 26, knowing I had waited so long. Well what a performance, it exceeded all my expectations. The actors were magnificent. Jean Valjean has always been my favourite character, and Simon Bowman was exceptional. But this does not in any way detract from the other actors, they were magnificent and the whole production was totally believable. When you go to the theatre you expect to be transported to another world, believe me, this was another world and the whole experience for me was FANTASTIC. Thank you everyone the Actors, Production Team, anyone involved.

Les Mis at Queens Theatre was great. Nick Jonas was amazing and impressive as Marius, with a powerful voice and excellent acting skills. He made the show for me. I would recommend anyone to go and see this show. We also had a great view in the stalls.

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.
