Les Miserables - 1985 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

Cameron Mackintosh's legendary production of Boublil and Schonberg's LES MISERABLES is a global stage sensation.

Seen by more than 70 million people in 43 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, it is still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 30th year.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption-a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

Featuring the songs "I Dreamed A Dream", "Bring Him Home", "One Day More" and "On My Own"- Les Miserables is the show of shows.
