The Show

Les Miserables is a worldwide phenomenon and is London’s longest running musical.  The show is based on the book by Victor Hugo and is based on true events. The show features famous music such as ‘I Dreamed a Dream’, ‘One Day More’, ‘On My Own’, ‘Do You Hear the People Sing’ and many more.

The musical follows the story of ex-prisoner, Jean Valjean, as he rises to respectability, and his rivalry with Inspector Javier on the backdrop of a French Barricade where the common people make a stand against the re-established monarchy.

Valjean’s adopted daughter, Cosette, falls in love with one of the rebels, Marius.  Another young woman, Eponine, is also in love with Marius, and this love triangle unfolds throughout the show.

Les Miserables temporarily moved venues to the Gielgud while the Queen’s was being renovated. The show returned to its home which has been renamed the Sondheim Theatre.
