Longest Running Musical Today Dec 11, 2009
I saw Les Meserables when I was about 10 years old so it has been quite awhile. I loved the show then and even did a musical theatre piece of Cosette's, "Castle on a Cloud."
After seeing it again, so many years later, it was still as great as ever. The story line is very easy to follow and it is a special story. It is of a man, Jean Valjean, and after several years of working the chain gang, is released back into the real world. Although he is presented with a ticket that he must display, which in turn leaves him as an outcast, he meets a Bishop that is kind to him and treats him very well. Although Jean Valjean, steals silver from the Bishop and is back in police custody again, he is amazed when the Bishop defends him and saves his life. It is here, Jean Valjean decided to start his life over and be better. And that he does.
The show goes on to witness Jean Valjeans changes over the years and new relationships that he creates to better himself and others. Although he is moving forward, he is still struggling with his past.
The characters, the songs, and the set are done very well. There was a stop in the show midway through the first act for about half an hour, but was quickly resolved. The original Jean Valjean was not well and apparently the 3rd understudy got to step in. I think that is good for him. Our seats were ok. We were in one of the last rows on the floor and because of the upper level, we unable to see a part of the stage.
Overall, I still love the show, and love to sing along with the songs! Well done London Cast!
