Marsie’s Travel Diary

Location: Queen's Theatre, England

MapI have a new favourite theatre show - Les Miserables. Before stepping into the Queen’s Theatre this week, my knowledge of the play was limited to it being set in 19th century France. I’ve been living under a contemporary rock.

The actors were great and delivered the goods with powerful songs and performances. Jean Valjean and Fantine were awesome. Even the young boy as Gavroche was well cast. Also impressive was the revolving centre of the stage. This provided interesting scene changes and movement of the characters. Where was that during drama classes and rock eisteddfods! It was really well done.

The performance was really entertaining. And yes, I cried.
