If you only ever see one West End show, Les Miserables is the one to see.

5.0 star rating Jennifer Else from Surrey, UK


I cried, I laughed, I was spellbound - how do the cast make this magic? Just as fresh, exhilarating and spell binding as when I first saw it 15 years ago and worth every penny.The pure energy coming from the stage never ceased and nearly 3 hours passed by with the audiences rapturous attention. In the gentle parts you could hear a pin drop and everyone was caught up in the vervour of the 'cause' - not enough words to praise. Thank you. I am already booking up my next show. NEVER EVER STOP!!!

First time Les Mis at the Queens for me - Two words. Absolutely Epic! Actors took on their charactors so wonderfully and performed most beautifully, most definately recommended. I was most surprised of the many songs I knew from Les Mis that Ididn't know I knew. Definately a must see, I cannot wait to see it again, amazing!!!

This is the second time I've seen the show. I went to the Matinee this time - and wanted to hide under the seats after it finished to stay for the evening production! I know I'll be back again.

5.0 star rating Nick Clarke from Swanage, UK.


I've seen Les Mis about 30 times in all the english speaking countries. So I was looking forward to wednesday's matinee, the one before THE wedding. This was by far the best Jalvert I have ever seen. Powerful vocals, brilliant acting, absolutely breath-taking! 10/10. *****

Me and my sister took our mum to see Les Miserables in the Queens Theatre for her 60th birthday last week, as she loves the music and none of us had ever seen it. Well, it was the most amazing show I have ever seen. My mum and sister loved it, I was amazed, emotional and in awe. Until seeing the show I had only listened to the songs and not really understood the story very well behind it. I had tears in my eyes on many occasions at the brilliant acting that went along with the fabulous voices.....wow...I will definately be taking another trip to London to see it again. You are in for a real treat if you go and watch it, enjoy, I cant rate it highly enough. Thankyou to the actors and singers from myself and a very appreciative audience. We sat in row G in the stalls we had a great view.

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.
