Out Now On-Demand

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Les Misérables' premiere at the Barbicon, London, this is a recording of a gala performance at London's O2 theatre, from October 3, 2010.

Claude-Michel Schönberg & Alain Boublil's legendary musical, based on Jean Valjean's epic journey of redemption as told in Victor Hugo's 1862 novel, is the third longest running show on Broadway (after The Phantom of the Opera and Cats). This concert hosts a company of over 300 actors and musicians, including Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Nick Jonas (from the Jonas Brothers) as Marius, Norm Lewis as Javert, Little Britain's Matt Lucas as Thénardier, Lea Salonga as Fantine, Jenny Galloway as Madame Thénardier, Camilla Kerslake as Cosette.

They ruined the ending, one of the lovliest bits in the whole piece, the whole piece

All great, theatre great, service great, until the film broke down just before the intermission, totally ruining the Best song in the show. To make things worse, they did not replay the song, just went to interval, then to the second half. Feel sorry for newbies to the play, as they would not have known what the hell was going on, and therefore will never have the same passion for it as my sister and myself have.
