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 is currently showing at the Gielgud Theatre while the Queen’s Theatre is being renovated. The show will return to its home, which will be renamed the Sondheim Theatre, in December 2019.
