Queens, Barbican and O2 shows offer a triple dose of Misery
LES MISERABLES returns to its original London home at the Barbican from today, as a new production of the famous musical reaches London after a UK tour.
With the Queens Theatre version still up and running, London will have two takes on the show on at the same time. Two musicals of the same name in the same city is apparently a world first, unless you count panto.
But wait for it, there's more Misery to come.
On Sunday 3 October, the day after the end of the Barbican run, a third, star-studded Les Miserables with elements from the casts of both London versions, turns up at the O2.
These extra Les Mis'es aren't here by coincidence, but are part of the show's 25th birthday celebrations. Back in 1985, the Royal Shakespeare Company brought us the first London Les Miserables. From there it switched to the Palace Theatre until 2004, when it shifted to its current home at the Queens.
