    Les Miserable was incredible. It is such a classic show and lived up to expectations. As a huge fan of musical theatre I had always been ashamed that I had never seen Les Miserables in London and it did not disappoint. The set was amazing (especially the barricade) and it had a turning floor which was used for scene changes, which I thought was a really creative and innovative idea and it worked really well. Every single cast member (including understudies) were so talented and the singing especially blew me away. The whole house was in tears at the last note of Do You Hear the People Sing at the end of the show. A well deserved standing ovation. Well done to the casting director. I would recommend this show to anyone who has even the slightest love if musical theatre. There were a few children in the audience who I believed were really impacted by this show. The show is almost 3 hours long so if you planned in bringing children take that into account. 5* show!!!
    I had a perfect view of the whole stage. You could see every area of the stage and the top of the barricade was not cut off but this is okay if you lean forward quite a bit. If you sit back comfortably then you will only see the back quarter of the stage. I regularly found myself with my elbows on the half wall in front of me. As a young adult, this position really put a strain on my neck and killed my back so I can't imagine how bad it would be for the older generation. The leg room was fine but because of the leaned over position I was in, it was difficult to hold my feet comfortably and they went numb a few times. I was lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me so I could put my bag out of the way next to me. As I was on the edge of my seat I was a little worried that my seat was going to break on me but it held out. I would definitely recommend this seat for the incredible view as long as you're okay with the uncomfortable position you'll be sitting in. Not recommended for those with neck/back problems.

    I'd seen a slightly different production of this on a tour years ago, but this really is one of the best theatrical experiences you can find on the west end. I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said, but everyone on that stage is oozing with talent, and you definitely feel like you're getting your money's worth
    Sat in Stalls A20
    Absolutely brilliant seat. The stage is pretty much at eye level (I'm 5ft 10), meaning you don't have to crane your neck to see the action. You can't see feet, but this wasn't an issue at all as a lot of the action takes place on raised parts of staging. There are a lot of times that actors come and go from a tiny door right next to you, and at times you have people singing at you almost within touching distance. All of this made it an amazing experience - I would definitely sit here again. The legroom is good and the seat is pretty roomy.

    One of my favourite shows, I've seen it many times but I found my experience from this seat really unpleasant but the show was anything but that. So many emotional moments and although the staging has been the same since 2004 it stills feels innovative as a modern day production would be. Will be returning again again very soon.
    Sat in Stalls A12
    This seat provides an amazing view for a world class show. I really love Les Mis but this seat ruined the whole show for me. It is so uncomfortable I can't put into words. I couldn't feel my bum after act 1 I bolted up as soon as the curtain went down, I needed to stretch as did the majority of the row. It was such a shame that this seat caused all of this. But although this sit was bad the view was completely different, the actors were looking right at you- you felt so immersed and in the actual production itself. This view was unreal just a shame about the comfort. I wouldn't sit here again but I'd defiantly see the show again.

LES MISÉRABLES SEATING PLAN
The middle of the Stalls and the front of the Dress Circle are best for those who would like clear and unhindered views of the famous barricade.

STORY
Alain Boubil and Claude-Michel Shönberg’s multi Tony and Olivier Award winning production is officially the longest running musical in the world.

Les Misérables is adapted for the stage from Victor Hugo’s novel of the same name. Directed by Trevor Nunn, the show is considered to be one of the best ever written and has been performed across the globe to millions of audience members.

The show is set in France across a period of several decades, primarily focusing on the life and struggle of former convict, Jean Valjean. Having been imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, Valjean is finally released on parole. Unfortunately he discovers that his past muddies his future potential and choses a life on the run from his former identity.

Some years later, Valjean makes good and becomes the Mayor of Montreuil-sur-Mer. His prosperous years seem about to falter once again as he takes in the stray child of a prostitute, only to capture the attention of the very police officer who has been searching for him since he skipped his parole 8 years back.

Les Misérables is widely praised for its fantastic music and delights the audience with memorable numbers such as “At the End of The Day,” “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Do You Hear The People Sing,” “One Day More” and “Bring Him Home.”

Les Misérables is currently running at the Queens Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue and still remains one of the most sought after theatre tickets in town.
Suitable For
Those who love a classic musical filled with rousing show numbers will love this production. The storyline is quite complex, so not ideal for young children who would struggle to keep up.
