2010 has already been a fantastic year for theatre breaks, but it won’t have escaped the attention of theatre lovers that October marks a special anniversary for one of the West End’s best-loved musicals – an occasion that’s being celebrated with a very special event.
Whether you’re a long-time fan or a newcomer who’s keen to see what all the fuss is about, Les Miserables at the O2 is the perfect chance to experience the 25th anniversary of Claude-Michel Schönberg’s landmark musical in London’s biggest venue.
One of three performances being staged around the capital to celebrate the musical milestone, the O2 show is the biggest and will surely be the best – featuring an ensemble cast of more than 300 performers from across the show’s 25-year history, it’s the ultimate experience for the die-hard Les Mis fan!
Tickets are already on sale and are bound to sell out fast, so be sure you get your perfect seat by booking your event with Superbreak. Prices start as low as £99, and that includes your theatre ticket as well as a 4* hotel in London near to the arena.
But why the celebration? Isn’t Les Miserables just another West End show? As any musical fan worth their salt knows, Les Mis is much more than that! The legendary show already broke the record of the longest-running West End musical in 2006, when it hit 9,500 performances, and it’s long since passed the 10,000 mark performing at Queen’s Theatre on London’s famous Shaftesbury Avenue.
This 25th anniversary celebration reunites some of the most popular performers of the show, including Alfie Boe in the lead role of Jean Valjean and Norm Lewis as antagonist Javert, as well as newcomers like Little Britain’s Matt Lucas in the role of Thenardier. If you’ve never seen the show before, this is the perfect introduction – Les Miserables is a musical event you won’t want to miss this autumn!
