Crazy Credits

[opening text crawl] When Les Miserables opened in October 1985 at the Barbican Theatre in London it was panned by many of the critics. They said it would never transfer to the West End, let alone Broadway. Les Miserables is now in production or development in over 70 cities in the world. See more »

'Stage by Stage' is the story of how the musical Les Miserables came to be, showcasing some of the performers and the songs, and spending a lot of time with the composers Boublil and Schonberg, a rather prickly Herbert Krenzmer, producer Cameron Mackintosh, director Trevor Nunn, and the 'musicalising' John Caird.

If you haven't seen the show, this gives away a few things, namely that centrepiece wow factor which the musical has. It does present some of the songs in a rather dull setting (Linzi Hateley sings 'On My Own', for example) and gives a plug to the symphonic recording which brought artists from all around the globe and different productions together.

Worth watching if only to see with hindsight that a/ a film was planned of the musical in 1988 and it is still to happen; b/ how Cameron Mackintosh really struck gold with a rather obscure French CD; and c/ how the critics can be so wrong - Les Miz has now been running in London for 25 years and still runs around the world.
