Les Misérables

About the show

Please note that performances of Les Misérables have been postponed in response to government advice regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). It will resume performances as early as practical in 2021.

Alain Boubil and Claude-Michel Shönberg’s multi Tony and Olivier Award winning production is officially the longest running musical in the world and for anyone in London, getting tickets to this great musical at least once in your life really is a must.

Les Misérables is adapted for the stage from Victor Hugo’s novel of the same name and has been performed across the globe to millions of audience members. After playing for years with an iconic revolving stage and direction from Trevor Nunn, the show received an update in 2019. Now directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell, the critically-acclaimed touring production runs at the Sondheim Theatre and features new projections and lighting design to vividly bring the revolution to life.

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 Sondheim Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue and still remains one of the most sought after theatre tickets in town.
