"Les Miserables" is one of the most popular shows in the West End. It has been running for well over ten years now and shows no sign of slowing down. It has been boosted in recent years by the release of the Oscar-winning movie starring Russell Crowe.
It's an epic tale of passion and destruction, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, and follows the story of Jean Valjean after his release from prison.
He soon befriends the kindly Bishop of Digne, but repays his trust by stealing a pair of golden candlesticks. The Bishop quickly forgives him to save him from the ruthless policeman Javert, but can Jean keep his nose clean and stay one step ahead of him and avoid capture?
Craig has been to see Les Miserables himself and throughly recommends it. You can read his review here. You can read his review of the Queen's Theatre as well.
