Behind the scenes at Les Misérables

Now the longest-running musical in the West End, Cameron Mackintosh's tale of revolution and romance in nineteenth-century France didn't always look like it had legs. Critics gave the show a kicking when it arrived in London in 1985, but Les Mis was a hit with audiences regardless. It's evolved a bit since then, naturally, with a recent orchestral overhaul bringing the sound of the show screaming into the twenty-first century. It's tweaks like this that keep the the show's legion of fans hooked, and likely played a part in its scooping of the Audience Award at the Oliviers in 2012.
