For sheer musical theatre spectacle and an emotional roller coaster, it quite rightly remains the best show in town - The Stage

One of the best !! by Carolyn
I have seen lots of musicals and this is my 'All time favorite' Everything is spectacular - the singing is superb and there are so many brilliant songs. Certainly a 'must see ' musical. If you only ever see one musical - make sure it's this one.
highly recommend by Immacon
All artists were very good, the quality of voice were fantastic specially "Rachel Ann Go" suites very well in their characters. Good job everyone!

Must see by Tracy
Fantastic show one of the best
Simply Stunning by Kelly
Most people know the story of Les Miserables these days, but I cannot stress strongly enough how it NEEDS to be seen it its original format - on the stage. The sets were authentic, and very cleverly made. Each and every performer is note, word and foot perfect throughout. I went from sobbing my heart out to truly mesmerised for the entire 3 hours of the show. We had seats in the upper circle, which had restricted views. There were small portions of the show that we couldn't see without leaning forward, but it didn't detract from the experience. However, there was a cold draught coming from above us, which was quite uncomfortable at times. We were able to get drinks easily during the interval, however there were very long queues for the bathroom 10 minutes into the second half. On the whole, it was a really enjoyable experience and I would definitely see it again.
Everything about the show was brilliant. The acting, singing were fantastic. I would go and see it again just a great night
Seeing the live show is a must by Valerie
I've seen a number of versions of Le Miserable on the TV, and listened to the cd, but seeing the live show is a must. It brings the story to life.
weekend away by matthew
A great show, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Best show ever by Christine
Absolutely fantastic, can't fault it
It was FANTASTIC!!! by Kaja
I'm from Poland and I can't speak english very well, but I understood more than less. It was great and I would go to this again and again. The second act was very very sad, so you should have a lot of handkerchiefs.
"Stars" by John
This is the second time I have seen Les Mis.on stage. It was everything as I remembered it and more. Subtle changes did nothing but improve it. A great Theatre with a very welcoming , professional staff front of house and a very talented cast on stage. My only comment was that the replacement Fantine (in my opinion) , on the night did not quite match the passion of the Ruthie Henshaw ilk but none the less gave a great performance. A great theatrical experience. Thank you.
Show by Sue
Ordered tickets in advance, no problems with picking up on day from box office. Found the dialogue on display rather distracting at times but appreciate you have to cater for everyone. Excellent show.

8th time by Molly
I have seen the show 8 times & still enjoy it however it has a much smaller cast now & the stage is smaller so feels less grand. Unfortunately potato chips are now available for people to munch through the performance & I was surrounded by people who were compelled to munch during most of the quiet moments!
Mesmerising!! by Tanya

Amazing by JUlie
One to see
i cried like a baby by anongentleman
it was awesome , i had the worst seats in the house but the show was still amazing , great all round, was very moved by the story and the songs
lacking something by Louise
To be very honest I was totally unimpressed with the show. It was lacking something and like the actor were just going through the motions of the musical and no passion in the performance. But second half was a bit better. One good thing the singing was fab.

DISSAPPOINTED by ALAN
I AM A HUGE LES MIS FAN AND HAVE SEEN THE SHOW 15 TIMES NOW WITH MANY EXCELLENT QUALITY CAST MEMBERS. UNFORTUNATELY WAS BITTERLY DISAPPOINTED WITH LAST SATURDAY NIGHTS SHOW. IT WAS THE WORST CAST I HAVE SEEN, WEAK VOICES, VERY LITTLE EMOTION, EVEN THE WRONG MUSIC STARTED DURING ONE OF FONTEINE'S SONGS. tHIS IS MY FAVORITE SHOW, BUT I WON'T BE BOOKING AGAIN UNTIL A MAJOR CAST CHANGE HAPPENS. IT WAS NOT WORTHY OF THE TICKET PRICES.
Still fantastic the second time round by Helena
Having first seen Les Mis 20 years ago, I just took my daughter to see it. We both loved it and thought it was better than the film, particularly the quality of the singing (although some of the acting was a bit wooden). It remains the best musical out there.
Les mis by Mr d.
2nd time. To show. Ten out of tem
a wonderful afternoon by maria
Went to see show as daughter wanted to see it but never was one of those must see shows. However came out with a completely different feeling. It had excellent performances and singing was out if this world. Watch out for the child performers as they are something special and will amaze you
Stucki by Andries
Was absolute fantastic. Sit far from people who try to sing along and eat chips,... an refrain from doing that yourself, please!!!!
Fantastic by Aj
First time my boyfriend has been to a west end show and wasn't sure this would be the best choice of show and I wasn't exactly sure that I would like it either. But both of us came out abd couldn't believe how much we enjoyed it. Thoroughly moving show...!!!! If anyone is unsure please don't hesitate..
Les Mis by Janice
Fabulous story, very talented actors and singers. We loved the show.
Its still amazing! by MB
Having seen the show years ago in Manchester I had always promised myself I would see it in the West End. Saw the film last week and loved that too. Geronimo Rouach is very good as Valjean, his accent a little 'weird' at times but can't argue with his singing - makes the hairs on your neck stand up! Tam Matu is superb as Javert and the whole cast are first class, what you'd expect. I had a seat with limited view in the upper circle but it didn't spoil my enjoyment one bit! Fantastic show, amazing cast, brilliant music...so glad I went!
