For 16 weeks only, Cameron Mackintosh's production of Boublil and Schönberg's LES MISÉRABLES will star Michael Ball (Javert), Alfie Boe (Jean Valjean), Carrie Hope Fletcher (Fantine) and Matt Lucas (Thénardier) in a spectacular and intimate staging of the legendary concert previously seen in London at the Royal Albert Hall and The O2. Katy Secombe also joins to play Madame Thénardier and for three performances a week, the role of Jean Valjean will be played by John Owen-Jones.
This is the best performance I have ever seen of Les Mis. The cast and voices were fautless I thoroughly enjoyed the show
Seen Les Mis before and thoroughly enjoyed it. When I saw the all star cast, notable Mr Alfie Bow I was sold, I just had to see and hear him. Well last night was the night, a day of excitement then the show, and Mr Bow, wow, I mean wow, totally blew me away, what a performance!! Worth every shiny penny/pound that o paid for my pair of tickets. Show great, theatre lovely, location central.
Superb staged version of the wonderful Les Mis. All of the cast were excellent.
As always interesting to see how this production is staged in a small theatre. Excelled at sound and light. Glad knew the story as could be confusing for first time viewers . Vocals great. Highly recommended
The show was utterly spellbinding! Absolutely fabulous in every way!!
What a way to celebrate! Totally amazing production!
Book tickets for a special birthday and what a treat. Everything about the evening was amazing from the lead members of the cast through to all of ensemble. Truly memorable and an evening to talk about for a very long time!
Fantastic production all round. Orchestra situated at rear of stage was well thought through .Lighting and special effects very good. The cast were so talented and brilliantly cast. A few tears were shed among the audience at the passion shown in the storyline. Don’t miss it !
Great show, amazing performances. Couldn't fault it. Especially loved the innkeeper (Matt Lucas) and his wife.
It was the first time my daughter and myself see Les Mis and words fail me. My favourite has always been Phantom of the Opera but I can tell you that this production of Les Mis is definitely a very good runner up in my books. Can't wait to see it again. Absolutely outstanding.
This was a 30th birthday present for my daughter. We cried, we laughed, it was amazing, the voices were great, the orchestra were fantastic. My daughter said the best present ever and brilliant memories. This show has memories for us as a family. My dad who died loved the show, so we took his photo with us. Thanks for a great show.
What a truly magnificent concert this was. Made my hairs stand up the whole way through. Terrific
As a fan of Les Mis this production was a treat. Wonderful voices lead by the amazing Alfie Boe and a fantastic orchestra. A music lover’s heaven!!!
The show was wonderful, from the quality of the singing to the orchestra which was brilliant, to the the way the show was staged. Having seen the show many times it has to be said that Matt Lucas was outstanding in the role of Theodore.
Sensational. Different from the show as didn't have the props but just as good (if you know the songs). Voices were fantastic, particularly John Owen-Jones as Jean Valjean and the Thenardiers were brilliant hamming it up.
Seen les mis many times and Matt Lucas is the best Thenadier by a country mile!
Everything about this show was fantastic and the cast deserved the standing ovation.
If you know Les Miserables then you know from the opening strains of the music you feel yourself totally absorbed, but this concert was something else! Wow Michael Ball was sensational the power of his voice took you away in fact every one was brilliant the songs were sung with such clear diction the simplicity of the set was visually stunning the lightning which I always think takes you to another realm created such drama it didn't matter that this was a concert it just enhanced it to a new level, & who could forget the orchestra on show and delivering every single time I am so pleased to have seen this concert a true festival of the senses, it left me with tears in my eyes, amazing if you get the chance to see it then grab it with both hands cos this will take you on the ride of your life
This show was amazing and emotional it's a must see
Magnificent! The show was even more moving than the full version I think because it was more intimate and the sung words were so clear. The orchestra was superb as were the lighting/guns etc.
Having seen Les Miserables 3 times, the first time starring Alfie Boe and Matt Lucas this was a must on my wedding anniversary. However was gutted when once the tickets were purchased it was announced that Alfie didn’t do the Wednesday matinee, should have been advertised at the out. Naughty advertising it as the celebrity version but not listing days in advance.
Loved the staging and the singing. Best version of the show we have seen!
Thoroughly enjoyed the concert staging of Les Mis this afternoon. All cast amazing and a brilliantly effective production.
Really enjoyed the show - even better than the first time. Great to see Michael and Matt reprise their roles.
Brilliant cast, brilliant show. Would highly recommend
Absolutely superb. The whole performance faultless. A very pleasurable evening !!!!!!
Omg it was fantastic, cannot praise highly enough. As expected, Alfie For and Michael Ball raised the rafters with their incredible voices and Matt Lucas was fabulous as the Innkeeper, but less expected,absolutely EVERY one else was equally as good, with the best and most powerful version I have ever seen ( and I have seen Les Mis many times).
Absolutely amazing, enjoyed every single second
Only needs one word to describe it. AWESOME
Excellent cast and faultless production
Would highly recommend
Amazing production. Cast excelled and atmosphere was terrific. Thoroughly enjoyed the production which concentrates on the songs but still contains the drama
Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Over the last 30yrs i've seen the show 25 times, my children have grown up on it. No more left to say.
Just amazing made even better by seeing Alfie Boe (who wasn’t supposed to be in this matinee) with Michael Ball. I loved it - well done to everybody - want to see it all over again.
The whole show was wonderful but disappointed Alfie Boe and Matt Lucas were not in the performance of Thursday 31st October apparently due to illness saying that Michael Ball and the rest of the cast were amazing tickets are expensive enough with a full cast as advertised it’s a bit like having a Sunday lunch without a Yorkshire Pudding!!
An amazing concert from beginning to end- singing out of this world- orchestra amazing! One of the best shows I have seen in a long time. Michael Ball was outstanding as were the rest of the cast.
I have seen Les Mis four times before. Frankly, this “staged concert” was just as good ( if not better) than the full set and the singing of Ball & Boe lifted it all to a higher level. Exceptional!!
Absolutely amazing from start to finish. All the cast were fantastic but seeing Michael Ball and Alfie Boe together was something else.
The concert with its star studded cast and orchestra is just amazingly wonderful. A once in a lifetime not to be missed.
The show was amazing, Alfie Boe and Micharl Ball were outstanding.
Amazing. Loved the show.
Superb and phenomenal - one of the best shows we’ve seen even without Alfie Boe Thank you - memorable
The concert was magnificent. Every bit as good as the actual Les Mis theatre production, if not better. John Owen Jones was superb in the lead role as was Michael Ball. Every cast members’ voice beautiful. A wonderful memorable evening.
Have seen Les Mis 5 times at different theatres and last nights performance at the Gielgud was brilliant. Liked the new set leaving you to imagine what the story told and the orchestra being part of the set added a new dimension looking forward to seeing it again when it moves back
Absolutely outstanding performances. Matt Lucas seems made for his part and Michael Ball was spine chilling.
Exceptionally good. Excellent performances from all the cast. Even my husband, not a massive fan of musicals, was so impressed that he now wants to see the full show. Result!
It was amazing, from tears to laughter within minutes. All the cast were amazing.
Seen this show many times in various places including the O2, but this was by far my favourite production. Not about acting or stage props. Purely wonderful voices and music!!
Disappointed we didn't see Alfie Boe in the role of Jean Valjean, but John Owen-Jones was excellent. Very impressed with how the concert was staged. The main roles were outstanding and the chorus was superb. Fourth time of seeing this musical and I will certainly see it again!
