The 25th anniversary Les Miserables concert at the O2 was a very special occasion indeed, topped by a great cast and tailed by the appearance of leading players from the 1985 cast including Colm Wilkinson and Michael Ball.
We went to see the 25th anniversary production of Les MisÚrables at the Barbican last night. Within the first minute it became clear that the production is very different from the original. Different as in better or worse? No, we came to the conclusion it was just different. All of which shows the ultimate influence a production team has on the base material of a show.
