    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.

    Les Miserables is a classic West End show and a must see for anyone who really loves musicals. There are some beautiful and touching moments with Eponine, Jean Valjean and Javert, while the comic subplots with Thenardier and Madame Thenardier are genuinely funny. Despite this, it can’t help but all feel a bit drab now. Even if you have never seen it, you probably have heard many of the songs from the show countless times, while its huge success in the 1980s has meant it has helped define the stereotype of West End theatre, and watching it in 2017 feels rather a lot less thrilling than I am sure it originally was.
    Generally you get a very good view of the stage, if a little distant and high up which occasionally can take you out of the action, but really isn’t a big problem. The seat has good legroom and is reasonably comfortable. Overall highly recommended!

    This was my first time seeing Les Mis again after seven years. It is truly the best show in the West End! At the heart is a wonderful ensemble performance, with rousing music and a heart-breaking story. The show itself never ages, and I found I was still impressed by the simple, but effective, technical elements. I cannot recommend this show enough. Les Miserables is the ultimate production, it really defines theatre for me.
    I really liked this seat! It's the second to back row of the Dress Circle, toward the left hand side of the auditorium when facing the stage. I am fairly short, but I did not have a restricted view at all - even though someone tall was in front of me. Seats are staggered and tiered very well, so whoever is in front will not hinder the view. Although the photo makes the view look distant, you are actually fairly close. Facial expressions are a little difficult to see, but you don't miss anything. The Upper Circle overhang is in view, but this did not cut anything off - not even the top of the barricade. Would absolutely sit here again for an excellent view.

    The show itself is brilliant - an amazing musical, emotionally charged, extremely well performed and highly recommended. Seats at the back of the stalls are really not a good idea though because you miss quite a lot of the set - the barricade is the main part of the set and you can't see the top of it, plus it feels as though you are watching a performance from within a tunnel - my photo will show you why, and that certainly caused me to feel disconnected to the show. I've seen it 4 times and the worst seats have been back of stalls. Best advice - pay a little extra money and book seats towards the front of the stalls - up to about row M. They'll be fantastic.
    Sat in Stalls U20
    I found this seat very uncomfortable and think anyone over 5'8" will. The seat in front is not lined up directly, and consequently there is a hinge on the seat that connects with your knee if your legs are long enough that your knees are touching that seat. Mine ended up bruised. My back ended up aching a lot, probably because my body was so tense trying to get comfortable. The view from here is really not good at all - you miss quite a lot of the set - the barricade is the main part of the set and you can't see the top of it, plus it feels as though you are watching a performance from within a tunnel - my photo will show you why, and that certainly caused me to feel disconnected from the show. I've seen it 4 times and this resulted in a completely different experience than when I have sat front of stalls. Best advice - pay a little extra money and book seats towards the front of the stalls - up to about row M. They'll be fantastic. If you are only interested in going for the music and you are shorter than 5'8" or taller than that but very skinny, you'll be ok. If you are 6' or more and have anything other than a small frame, avoid these seats.

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.

Age Recommendations: Recommended for children 7+
