The first time I saw Les Miserables was in Chicago, we had dreadful seats way up in the balcony and by the end of the 3 hour production we were rooting for the rest of the cast to die so we could go home.
But I thought, I'm in London, it's been about 10 years since I saw it in Chicago and the TKTS booth had a good seat so I gave it another try and was very glad I did.
The production started off a little weak, the sound didn't seem loud enough and the actress playing Fatine seemed to be a little weak. But as the play progressed, I found that I was really enjoying the production-the actor playing Jean Valjean was outstanding as was the actress playing Eponine and by the end I was a converted Les Mis fan, humming the shows unforgettable tunes all the way back to my hotel.
My seat was in row P, 16 rows from the stage, and I noticed that the balcony was probably only about 8 or 10 rows from the stage so if you have an option for 1st or 2nd row balcony seats, they might be better than main floor seats further back.
Address: Queen's Theater, Shaftsbury Avenue
Directions: The closest tube is Piccadilly Circus or Leicester Square is about as close.
