About Les Misérables

Don’t wait one day more. Head to the barricade. Les Misérables tickets are available on London Theatre now.

Victor Hugo’s epic French novel of the same name inspires the Les Misérables musical. The musical doesn’t focus on the French Revolution of 1789 though. Instead, Les Misérables tells an expansive story of one man’s journey to salvation from 1815 to 1832.

After picking up audience buzz at the Barbican, Les Misérables opened at the Palace Theatre on 4 Dec. 1985. Its original cast boasts West End and Broadway talent, including Patti LuPone and Michael Ball.

Les Misérables in London continues to attract audiences, with fans continuing to revisit this dazzling musical that includes Boublil and Schönberg's hit songs such as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” and “Do You Hear the People Sing?"

Audiences worldwide can’t get enough of Jean Valjean’s troubled life. Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, and Russell Crowe starred in the 2012 Academy Award-nominated Les Misérables film. Plus, it’s been produced across 42 countries and translated into 22 languages. But there's nothing quite like seeing Les Misérables, the West End's longest-running musical, in London.

What is Les Misérables about?

The Les Misérables musical is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and tells a moving story of unrequited love, sacrifice, passion, redemption, and revolutionary spirit. The newly-free prisoner Jean Valjean builds a new, respectable life for himself but is hunted by the prison guard Javert, all while revolutionaries fight for freedom in France. Throughout the musical, audiences meet Fantine, Eponine, and Cosette, as well as the Thenardiers, and freedom fighters like Marius and Enjolras.

Exquisite, Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you want an epic 3 hours of beautiful music with fantastic performances and tech. Truly a sight to behold.

Don’t see it if 3 hours of dramatic musical theater doesn't sound appealing. This show can be overwhelming at times and runs a bit long.

Miss the revolve, Ambitious, Classic

See it if You love this show, you will probably love this still to some extent.

Don’t see it if This production is more literal with the set, which works for the story but it felt like it lost some of the magic.

Review - Les Miserables at the Sondheim Theatre

5 of 5
25 Jan 2022, 19:44
Another fantastic chapter in West End history has been gloriously (re)written, with not one but two spectacular reinventions - first of a theatre itself, in which the Queen's on Shaftesbury Avenue has been reincarnated as the Sondheim Theatre and completely refurbished by its owner Cameron Mackintosh to restore it from a threadbare functionality to which it had previously been brought back 61 years ago from wartime bomb damage to a glowing and...
