About Les Miserables

Les Misérables, affectionately called Les Mis, is a stage musical adapted from the French poet and novelist Victor Hugo's 1862 novel. Claude-Michel Schönberg wrote the music, Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel crafted the original French lyrics and Herbert Kretzmer the English ones. The French musical premiered in Paris in 1980 and the English version, thanks to ace producer Cameron Mackintosh, has graced the West End non-stop since since October 1985. Welcome to theatreland's longest-running musical and the second longest-running musical in the world.
