London theatre showing Les Miserables
The Les Miserables stage version continues to be a big hit in the West End.
Interest in the Victor Hugo novel of the same name has increased since the release of a new Hollywood movie starring Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried.
Visitors in central London hotels can see a great musical version at London’s Queen Theatre, which has received strong critical acclaim and has been running for a number of years in the capital's West End district.
According to The Stage: "Les Miserables is not the show to go and see if you fancy a sing-along, or require knockabout comedy, but for sheer musical theatre spectacle and an emotional roller coaster, it quite rightly remains the best show in town."
The story definitely features many of the key elements of a great show including rivalry, love and political action.
A number of popular songs such as Who Am I, A Little Fall of Rain, One Day More, Bring Him Home and I Dreamed a Dream are all featured in the stage version.
Evening performances take place Monday to Saturday, with matinees every Wednesday and Saturday, with prices ranging from £22.50 to £65, with concessions available for those opting for restricted viewing seats.
The Queen's Theatre is in Shaftesbury Avenue is a short walk from Piccadilly Circus London Underground station and there are plenty of leading restaurants and bars in the area for a pre-theatre snack or meal
