The Christmas and New Year 2014/2015 performance schedule for LES MISÉRABLES at The Queen’s Theatre, The Phantom of the Opera Tickets at Her Majesty’s Theatre and MISS SAIGON at the Prince Edward Theatre are as follows:
LES MISÉRABLES originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen’s Theatre on 3 April 2004 where it is still playing to standing room only. When LES MISÉRABLES celebrated its 21st London birthday on 8 October 2006, it became the World’s Longest-Running Musical, surpassing the record previously held by “Cats” in London’s West End. In January 2010, the West End production broke another record by celebrating its historic 10,000th performance. “LES MISÉRABLES” won the BBC Radio 2 Olivier Audience Award for the second time earlier this year, which is the only award voted for by the public.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has won 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony’s on Broadway and three Olivier Awards in the West End. It won the ‘Most Popular Musical Audience Award’, voted by the public, in the 2002 Laurence Olivier Awards. “THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA”, which opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre on 9 October 1986 starred Michael Crawford as ‘The Phantom’ and Sarah Brightman as ‘Christine.’ It is produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Theatre Company Limited.
MISS SAIGON first premiered at The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in 1989 where it played for 10 years. Cameron Mackintosh’s new production opened at the Prince Edward Theatre on 21 May 2014. When this production went on sale in September last year, it broke the record for the biggest single day of ticket sales in West End and Broadway history. “MISS SAIGON” tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with an American GI called Chris – but their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. “MISS SAIGON” has Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg with Lyrics by Richard Maltby Jnr and Alain Boublil, adapted from Original French Lyrics by Alain Boublil with Additional Lyrics by Michael Mahler.
