Saw the concert version. Less Heart that the touring production but strong cast and some good moments.

Saw Tuesday, March 12th. Javert, Jean Valjean, Eponine, the young boy, and the orchestra were particularly spectacular; I was amazed in all regards. The other characters were weaker making the show drag on a bit, but the show still enjoyable.

Outstanding. Goosebumps and tears, throughout. I'd wanted to see Les Mis for years and was not disappointed. (Saw on 28.2.19)

The cast were fantastic, all brilliant voices. Particularly Javert and Valjean; great range. The orchestra were fantastic too.

The staging was wonderful, very modern and with lots of ingenuity. I left immediately wanting to come back and see it again!

I watched les mis at the Queen Street Theatre on 16/2/2019 and it was hands down the best musical I have ever seen! Even from the very back row of the theatre I had goosebumps for the entire time! Every single cast member had the most amazing voice and the stage effects used blew me away! 110% would go again!!

Seen L.M. Manytimes , But was a little disappointed this time 30/10/18 ..... From a young Cosset who was a cute White Girl , she was played by a young Black Girl when she was Older , must have been somewhat confusing to newcomers to the show , although she was a fabulous singer it just didn’t work for me ....

we went to a matinne on wednesday 11th April. We had both been once before.

We were amazed by how good all the cast were. Everyone was very keen. The principles were great.

Would definitely recomend it. Will go again!

Absolutely amazing! Having waited a long time to see it at the Queens theatre, London I was not disappointed. The matinee performance on Wed 11th April was an incredible experience and pure escapism. Thank you

Why or rather who, has decided my review of 23.3.18 was irrelevant, re youngsters fiddling in the front row. (while Rome burned)

Saw Les Mis for the 3rd on Friday and although I still consider it a favourite I was disappointed with Corsette and her lack of fire and passion. Jean Valjean was superb as was Marius. I thought Javert had too soft a voice.. Had a feeling this was played rather than engaged in and thus a tad disappointed..

I know I'm a lone voice on here, but neither my wife nor I enjoyed Les Mis. We have been going to the London theatre for over 30 years, so we have realistic expectations. OK, it had been hyped up by friends who have seen it, and by its own publicity, but even allowing for that it was very disappointing. We had reasonable seats in the upper circle, so no problem with our view. But the music and singing seemed loud, strident and to be honest, a bit tuneless. And we couldn't follow the plot at all, too many characters and too many apparently disconnected scenes. We left at the interval and drowned our sorrows in a nearby bar.
