Rarely, a stage musical becomes so famous and has such wide-ranging appeal that it becomes part of the cultural furniture. Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary Victor Hugo adaptation Les Misérables is one such show.

Now on stage for a record-breaking, multi-award winning three decades in the West End, it’s a guaranteed audience-pleaser and remains the people’s choice.

If you’ve yet to be knocked sideways by its sprawling, epic melodrama and heart-wrenching songs, it’s time to make Les Miz the show at the heart of your London theatre break.

Set amid the turmoil of the French Revolution, this sung-through show recounts the story of Jean Valjean, a wrongly-accused convict who finds redemption in helping the poor and who is relentlessly pursued for years on end by an obsessive lawman, Javert.

Along the way Valjean encounters indelible characters including his ward Cosette, tragic heroine Éponine, and Cosette’s dashing young lover Marius.

Is It For Me?

Whatever your taste in musicals, there’s no denying the power and beauty of Les Miz’s extraordinary songs. They’re what really make this show fly, and many have become famous in their own right outside the context of the show.

I Dreamed A Dream is a deeply moving expression of defeat you’d need a heart of stone not to identify with one some level. And when Valjean implores God to save Marius and return him to Cosette in Bring Him Home, you’ll understand why the song has become a staple of remembrance services the world over.

Les Miz tends to inspire intense devotion among fans. Its killer combination of a compelling love story, a fight for justice and life-giving melodies resonates strongly with our fundamental desires to be happy and good.

It’s also a Swiss Army knife in terms of catering to audience tastes. It’s perfect for date nights, ideal to take your mum to and great for kids, who love its child stars and eye-popping sets.
