Les Misérables is the famous musical adaptation of Victor Hugo's great humanitarian novel of one man's determined survival in the face of another's vengeful persecution. Set amid the social and political struggles of 19th century France, it tells the story of former prisoner Jean Valjean, who is pursued for decades by his policeman nemesis, Javert.
The dramatic score includes numbers such as On My Own, One More Day, and Do You Hear the People Sing?
Les Misérables has now celebrated 23 years in London, making it the capital's longest-running musical. The show first opened at the Barbican in 1985 before transferring to the Palace later that year, where it remained for nearly 20 years. It opened in its present home, the Queen's, in 2004. The show is now one of the world's best-loved musicals and has been produced in 38 countries and translated into 21 different languages. A Broadway production opened in 1987 and won eight Tony Awards.
The current London cast of Les Misérables includes Drew Sarich as Valjean, a role he has previously played on Broadway, and Earl Carpenter as Javert. Carpenter is a hugely experienced British musical theatre star who is best known for playing the title role in another long-running musical, The Phantom Of The Opera. His other London credits include Sunset Boulevard and Beauty And The Beast.
