"A truly stunning production....great experience"
March, 2015
The music , production, and the individual performances were all top class. We sat in the 4th on the left hand side and almost felt we were on the stage, as the set and performances spilled out into the theatre.
Tip: It was really easy to book the tickets and we collected them with minimal fuss, they were ready for collection.

If you can see only one play on Broadway, make it Le Miz. Provided it's playing. If not, travel to wherever it is. It has become a modern classic. Wonderful music and songs with a compelling story based on the classic historical novel, Le Miz does it all.

3rd row to the stage, I'm thrilled by the performance done by the actors. Broadway ticket may be slightly expensive yet it worths spending. The songs linger around your mind and could not disappear. Feel the passion of the dreamers in New York!I will be back #NewYork

I cannot believe it took me so long to see this show. We went just before it went off Broadway and we really liked it. I am glad that I finally took the time to go see if before we lost our chance. Of course the set was awesome and the songs are one of the best out there. The costumes were great and all of the actors did an awesome. I hope that this will make a come back to Broadway in the future. It almost does not seem right to for this show to not be on Broadway.
