Les Misérables: The All-Star Staged Concert description

All Star Les Miserables – Legendary entertainment!

In 1862 Victor Hugo wrote a novel. More than a century later the story turned up as a concept album. In 1980 it was adapted for the stage and enjoyed a brief run. In 1983 Cameron Macintosh created an English language version which, two years later, hit the London stage and made history. Thirty nine years later Les Mis is still loved by millions. The London production has run continuously since October 1985, the longest-running West End musical and the second longest-running musical in the world.

Now we've got something incredibly special for you. Whether you've already seen the show or not you'll adore this fresh production starring a celebrity cast. For a strictly limited 16 week season, Cameron Mackintosh's production of Boublil and Schönberg's Les Mis will star Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine, Matt Lucas as Thénardier and Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier.

The staging is apparently spectacular and also unusually intimate, telling the story in the form of a concert that has previously wowed audiences at the Royal Albert Hall and The O2. The cast and orchestra total more than 65 people, a whopper of a production, and it's on at the Gielgud theatre from August, right next door to the current home of Les Mis, the Queen's.

The show tunes are amazing, and hearing them sung by these remarkable singers is a huge treat. You'll sing your heart out to tunes like I Dreamed A Dream, Bring Him Home, One Day More and On My Own. And the plot? It goes like this... Roll back time to the early 1800s. The scene is France. This is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his burning need for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread.

Valjean breaks his parole and begins a new life, inspired by a Bishop's act of mercy, promising to adopt and care for the orphaned girl Cosette. Chased by the police, Valjean must be very careful indeed. But when the revolution heats up and a group of young idealists try to overthrow the government at a street barricade, things get nasty.

Who is this show for?
Les Mis is great for kids aged 8 and over. Children under 5 won't be admitted. If you're under 16 you must sit with your parents or an accompanying adult.

Absolutely brilliant and really emotional

My husband and I travelled from Fife the day before then went to the theatre on wednesday. We were in the grand circle (row B)and had a terrific view but were slightly puffed climbing all the stairs up there. The seats were comfy (we are both tall) with plenty of legroom. But, it was really worth the climb. The whole show was wonderful. Costumes,lighting basically everything was really good. we were on such a high when we left and my hands were sore from clapping so much. It was worth the long journey and we can't stop singing all the brilliant songs.

Always lives up to the hype

Wonderful concert, excellent musicianship from the players and singers. We were sat in the very back row of the Grand Circle, so the farthest possible seats from the stage, yet it was still intensely enjoyable. I did have a small pair of glasses/binoculars which helped me see the performers faces clearly from time to time, I like to do this if I'm that from the stage. Alfie Boe was absent from our performance, which is the only way we managed to get tickets, to be honest, but John Owen Jones was a more than capable deputy. Brilliant show, see it if you can!

An emotionally powerful Show

Les Mis has been one of my favourite West End shows for some time and the concert version certainly did not disappoint. The acting of the entire cast was phenomenal but particularly that of Carrie Hope Fletcher (Fantine), John Owen-Jones (Jean Valjean in the matinee show I attended) and of course Michael Ball (Javert). Matt Lucas (Thenardier) was also funny, adding some new quips into his performance. I was not sure what to expect as far as props/lighting went due to the concert format of the production but I was happy to see the familiar red flag being waved in 'One Day More'. I also particularly liked the lighting effects during Javert's song 'Stars' and his final song. Altogether I would say it was a fantastic show and definitively would recommend going to watch it if you have the chance.

Les Misérables - The All-Star Staged Concert I’ve written several times here about my disappointment that the original production of Les Mis is to be replaced in the West End by an excellent but cheaper version, opening once its current home, the Queen’s theatre, has been refurbished and renamed the Sondheim Theatre.
