Now a major movie, Les Misérables is produced by Cameron Mackintosh, adapted and directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, written by Alain Boublil & Claude-Michel Schonberg with lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, and based on the novel by Victor Hugo.
Les Misérables is currently booking until 17 October 2020 at the Sondheim Theatre (formerly Queen’s Theatre), London.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his quest for redemption.
Having served 17 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread for his starving niece, a kindly Bishop inspires Valjean to begin a new life.
Breaking parole, Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert.
When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
