Advantages: great songs , wonderful sets, interesting story
West End musicals are very popular.Most of the shows are well-done,the singing of high standards and the sets spectacular.
I am a big musical fan.And I can say that from all the musicals I have seen,Les Mis remains still my favorite.
Maybe it is the fact that the story is very good,full of action,romance and tragedy.Having Victor Hugo's novel as your basis,is a very big advantage.But I believe it is more than that.Both music and lyrics are great,and it is no wonder that most songs have become "Classic". My favorite are :"Drink with me", "On my own","One day more","Bring him home" and "Castle on the cloud".
I have seen the show 3 times and I can tell you,I was equally thrilled every time I watched it.It celebrated this year,its 16th birthday.It is a must-see for every musical lover.
