1   Review by: Shuven, Dec 15, 2011
Went to see the show on Dec. 10th. Despite terrible seats at upper circle, we enjoyed the show very much. This is musical that does not just entertains, it touches. Ramin plays a good Valjean, moving and powerful, almost a replicate of Colm Wilkinson, yet has technical problem at certain points like "take my flight" and 24601. He seemed exhausted after the show. Maybe Marius is too heavy to carry?... I love Hadley Fraser's Javert. Very beautiful ... read more

2 Not good at all this time!  Review by: Chrissyuk1957, Nov 22, 2010
Went to see Les Mis two years ago and it was absolutely fantastic, this being the reason for the return visit this weekend (19/11/10). This year's performance was lack lustre, as if they were going through the motions, with no feeling at all. We had front row dress circle tickets , and apart from the good seats this was a very dull event. We also found it unusual that the main performers names were given out at the beginning ... read more

3 My No. 1 Musical of all time  Review by: Linda from Scotland, Oct 22, 2010
In London for 2 days - saw this on the second night. Absolutely first class performance. Have now seen this twice (first time in Edinburgh). Am a great fan of musicals and love them all, but this one is the tops. First class. My all-time favourite.

4 Les Mis in London  Review by: , Sep 8, 2010
Les Mis was absolutely amazing! I went with my godfather Sept. 2, and was completely blown away by the performance. getting all of the different aspects of that show probably took about as long as it too the entire crew to memorize all of their parts perfectly, or for all of the costumes to be made. At times the person I was with had to remind me that I was not actually part of the production, as I kept leaning over the railing and lettin my ... read more

5 Amazing! Breathtaking!  Review by: hillbilly5, Mar 24, 2010
My husband and I went to see this show for our Wedding Anniversary present. Sat 2 rows from the front. I can honestly say this was head and shoulders above anything that we have ever seen before. The acting was amazing, scenery very innovative and the way that everything took place on the revolving stage was an art in itself. Very emmotive - I'm not one to show my emotions publicly but nearly lost it and cried right at the end. Everyone should ... read more

6 We laughed - and unusually I cried at the closing scene. Encor  Review by: Griph, Jan 9, 2010
We last saw LesMis at the Palace Theatre in the late 80's - and I treated my wife to premium stalls today as part of our Christmas presents. What struck us immediately was the evolution of the stage production since we originally saw it. Wow - much more movement and action - particularly liked the use of light, smoke and the turntable to add to the minimal scenery to cast a dramatic scene throughout. Wonderful - ... read more

I went to the Queens Theater in London on October 7th with a group of 30 people. A few said it was too long and too sad, but I absolutely loved it. The actors and actresses did wonderful with everything. The director certainly picked the most perfect people for each part. Nancy Sullivan as Eponine was my favorite. If I were to try out for Les Mis, that would be the part I want.

9 Can't see it just once!!  Review by: mom, Aug 19, 2008
Wonderful show. Saw it August 11 in london - far better production than the one i saw on broadway years back. A fresh new cast. also saw lion king and billy elliot same week- les mis was the best. my daughter wanted to see les mis every pm of the trip!
for added fun, hang out by the stage door before the show and meet some of the nice young actors!

This was the 5th time I have seen Les Mis, 1st time in London. As usual, it was wonderful and so powerful. I have never seen a bad Les Mis! I will see it as many times as I can. The acting and music was so powerful!

11 Wonderful in all aspects....  Review by: Helen B., May 7, 2008
Fabulous Show! Loved every Minute! Especially appreciated the performances of Cassandra Compton, and the Javert character.
Young Cast. Fresh Voices. The musical score is exact and hert-wrenchingly beautiful.
Sat on the right side of the Upper Circle. rather high up but had a wonderful view.

15 This show is brilliant, beautiful, touching and memorable....Go see it!  Review by: Liz C, Sep 13, 2006
The best part of this musical about the French Revolution is the brilliant musical score. The moving and memorable songs like "Do you hear the people Sing?"" On my Own"" A Little fall of Rain" and "Castle on a cloud" have a timeless quality. The plot is also interesting, with the story of an escaped convict, who is a good man at heart, trying to rebuild his life, with the French Revolution in the background. It includes love affairs and the ... read more
