20 May marked the opening night of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert at the Sondheim Theatre.

Playing until 8 September, the spectacular production includes a star-studded cast led by: Jon Robyns (as Jean Valjean), Javert (as Bradley Jaden), Thénardier (as Gerard Carey), Lucie Jones (as Fantine), Josefina Gabrielle (as Madame Thénardier), Shan Ako (as Éponine) and Harry Apps (as Marius).

Set during the revolution, this international award-winning musical has passion, fear, hope, love and some absolute tunes. Based on Victor Hugo’s immortal novel, the show features iconic music from Claude-Michel Schönberg, including, I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, Do You Hear The People Sing? and the ultimate tear-jerker, Bring Him Home.

To mark this special occasion, Ruth from the Official London Theatre team went to enjoy the production with fellow team member, Kayley.

Summing up their feelings at the end of the show, Kayley said: “It is such an intricate story – It is a classic for a reason” while Ruth says “we’ve been listening to music on our Bluetooth speakers for the last couple of months, but you forget how good it is seeing something live.”

From packing her handbag and travelling into London to exploring the West End and witnessing an incredibly powerful curtain call, follow Ruth as she vlogs her trip to the reopening of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert #BackOnStage.
