Les Misérables continues its 30 year run in London’s West End. The record breaking, award-winning musical is at Queens Theatre in 2016.
Les Misérables tells of the rivalry between Jean Valjean, an ex-convict, punished for stealing a piece of bread and Police Inspector Javert. The Bishop of Digne takes pity on Valjean, and he evades Javert over a period of twenty years. Valjean adopts factory worker Fantine’s illegitimate child, Cosette, and the musical continues to Paris in a story of love, loss and revolution. The themes of Les Misérables have universal resonance and the musical has been seen by 70 million people worldwide. The musical is widely critically acclaimed and has won multiple Olivier and Tony Awards. Les Misérables features popular songs, made famous by the show, including ‘One Day More’, ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and ‘On My Own’. The original music is by Claude-Michel Schönberg, with lyrics by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel. Les Misérables the musical is based on the classic French novel by Victor Hugo.

At the Queen’s Theatre, the longest-running musical in the West End shows no sign of neglect. The “house full” signs were up and there was a standing ovation the night I attended… In all key respects, Trevor Nunn’s original RSC staging has stood the test of time well: the revolve whirls tirelessly, lending a cinematic fluidity to a bustling, beautifully lit spectacle which, using John Napier’s pile-it-high design and tons of dry ice, memorably evokes the 1832 Paris uprising, when the downtrodden masses (some of them) protested against the monarchy of Louis-Philippe. With its emphasis on poverty and injustice, mood of angry disillusion and yearning for redemption, it may be that the through-sung piece speaks more to our own troubled age than it did to the Eighties...The Telegraph
