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 »

Must-viewing for any LES MIZ FAN!
8 February 2001 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

This 1988 video is a fascinating and unique view of the development of the musical LES MIZ. Overshadowed in popularity by the video release LES MISERABLES IN CONCERT, this video reveals the behind the scenes intricacies of producing this now classic musical, AND it features numbers from foreign productions as varied as the Norwegian, Hungarian, and Austrian versions. The interviews with producer Cameron MacIntosh and co-writers Schonberg and Boublil are particularly insightful.
