Catch the award winning London show, Les Miserables at the opulent Queens theatre! The popular show is adapted from an epic novel by Victor Hugo and went on becoming one of the world's longest-running musical. Since its inception in 1986, the show has garnered immense attention from people across the globe.

In the year 1986, the show made its debut and opened with lukewarm reviews. The show was later transferred from the Barbican to the Palace Theatre and finally settled at the Queen's Theatre. The mesmerizing show is set against the backdrop of French revolution, and revolves around the struggles and life of ex-convict Jean Valjean. 

The award winning London show, Les Miserables features heart touching composition by duo Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg. The show features some great musical numbers such as  "I Dreamed a Dream", "On My Own", "Stars", "Bring Him Home", "Do You Hear the People Sing?", "Master of the House", "A Little Fall of Rain" and the show-stopping "One Day More".

Trevor Nunn and John Caird have adapted and directed the show with songs penned by Herbert Kretzmer, set design by John Napier, costume design by Andreane Neofitou, lighting design by David Hersey and sound design by Mick Potter and Andrew Bruce. Although, the London West End production retained the original choreography and staging, but Broadway underwent revival like vamped-up video design and no revolving stage.

Les Miserable’s is performed by some of the greatest actors like Sierra Boggess, Danielle Hope, Alfie Boe, Ramin Karimloo, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Rachelle Ann Go and Eva Noblezada. However, Killian Donnelly as John Valjean, Jeremy Secomb as Javert, Steven Meo as Thénardier, Paul Wilkins as Marius, Carley Stenson as Fantine, Karis Jack as Eponine, Jacqueline Tate as Madame Thénardier, Hyoie O'Grady as Enjolras and Charlotte Kennedy as Cossette are performing currently in Les Miserable’s. The three hours long show is recommended for 7+  kids.

An epic, mesmerising musical that captures French history and defines musical theatre for many, Les Misérables plays at London's Queen's Theatre.
