"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?

Daily Mail – "A potent example of 21st century musical theatre"

 

 Guest – “This was absolutely fantastic, the best night out I have had in the West End. Other shows I have seen have maybe been better to look out, because the Phantom of the Opera has some wonderful sets and stagings, but the plot and music of Les Mis is fantastic. It is just one great number after another and i thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through. I shall definitely be going again”
