Cheap Les Misérables tickets at the Queen’s Theatre
Winner of the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Audience Olivier Award. In October 2010 Cameron Mackintosh's production of Boublil and Schonberg's Les Misérables celebrated its 25th Anniversary in London and is now the world's longest running musical. Their international award-winning show will sweep you up in an epic tale of passion and destruction, set against the backdrop of a nation in the grip of revolution.
Seen by more than 60 million people worldwide in 42 countries and in 21 languages, this spectacular adaptation of Victor Hugo's literary masterpiece continues to thrill audiences night after night.
Side seats in the Upper circle are restricted view. Rear Stalls and Dress Circle may be restricted view.
Les Misérables is the story of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict whose life is transformed and turned toward goodness by an act of charity. It's also a story of the turbulent times that characterised 19th century France.
Valjean is released after nineteen years in prison - five years for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family, the rest for repeated attempts to escape. Taking on a new identity he finds success, but his life among the poor brings passion and conflict to his door.
Aside from Valjean himself, Les Mis’ cast of characters inspires a level of devotion in audiences that other shows just don’t receive. Girls and women take particular inspiration from the struggles and triumphs of central female characters Eponine and Cosette.
Eponine’s story is one of the show’s main subplots. The ragged waif is the daughter of tavern owner Thénardier. Her journey through love to tragedy and ultimate redemption is among the most stirring in all of musical theatre.
Cosette, on the other hand, blossoms under the care of Valjean and represents a model of mature beauty for the grown up women of the audience.

The first stage musical adaptation of Les Misérables premiered at Palais des Sports in Paris in 1980. After years in development under the watchful eye of producer Cameron Mackintosh, the English-language version opened in London in October 1985 at the Barbican Centre. In December of that year the show moved to the Palace Theatre, where it remained for almost twenty years.
In April 2004 the show transferred to the Queen’s Theatre where it is still playing today. Les Misérables is the longest running musical in the West End and has been seen in over 40 countries and 20 different languages.

Queen's Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Queen's Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Queen's Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station. This 1045 seat venue was built in 1907.
The first production at the Queen’s Theatre was Madeleine Lucette Ryley’s comedyThe Sugar Bowl, which opened on October 8 1907. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are The Fanatics, The Trial of Mary Dugan, Halfway Up A Tree and Shadowlands.
Today, the Queen’s Theatre enjoys consistent success and has established a solid reputation for staging Shakespearean revivals, dance and musical theatre.
But, like any long-serving institution, its fortunes have varied over the years. In the late 1920s two plays were staged that generated a sensation: Miles Malleson's The Fanatics, and The Trial of Mary Dugan. The former especially caused great controversy, as it explored sex and marital problems with a frankness that had never before allowed by the Lord Chamberlain.
The theatre sustained considerable damage during WWII. The exterior was completely destroyed and significant damage was done to the front of house and dress and upper circles. The theatre remained closed for almost twenty years after the war, until it was finally restored and reopened in 1959.
The theatre underwent further refurbishment in 2009, increasing the capacity and generally improving the front of house experience for patrons.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Queen’s Theatre make it the perfect place to see comedy, drama and musical theatre. Recent successes include The Hobbit, Contract, The Rocky Horror Show, Les Misérables, the RSC’s The Taming of the Shrew and The Tamer Tamed.
