It was last year when I got a surprise ticket to this musical, for my birthday. I dreamed to see it before. I was left without words all the show. Now I want to return the surprise for my boyfriend's birthday and buying tickets to go. I got in love with all that music and living stage.

I loved the show! The singers blew me away and the stage sets and props were also amazing! We did Les Mis as a school production, seeing how it is performed on the west end really helped our show! Thank you! x

We first saw 'Les Mis' 23 years ago with the original London cast. We saw it again today and were again transfixed. It has lost nothing over the years and the cast were fantastic. Thank you all for a wonderful experience. There aren't enough superlatives to say how we really feel about the show.

We saw Les Miserables last night. It was the most wonderful fast moving show I have ever seen and highly recommend it. Absolutely brilliant, the whole cast was very professional and the singing outstanding. I now have the video and cd. Don't miss it.

I have seen LesMis now a 2nd time with a friend last monday (13.09.10) in London. I was thrilled again by the whole ensemble, but especially from Simon Bowman as Valjean. For me personally the best with Colm Wilkinson. It was an evening, which was gorgeous, adorable, wonderful, PERFECT for me. Thanks to you for the great evening... Claudia

What a show! The second time I've seen as I was taking a friend along, so thought it would lose its impact, but not at all. The songs are tremendous - emotive, well delivered, great choreography to match. All of the leads and extras were brilliant and thoroughly convincing for the majority of the performance, with the female leads particularly impressing. I was sat in the upper circle so expecting a poor view, but in fact the only slightly obstructed part of the stage was the front left corner, which was hardly used anyway. Most of the action happens in the centre of the stage, so everyone has a good view. I would certainly recommend anyone to see this (except perhaps small children, but even they would probs enjoy it), and would recommend the Rainforest Cafe restaurant nearby as a fun and tasty place to eat - especially good for families. Overall, this was a great performance, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.
