London West-End Shows First Visit (June 2014)

No visit in London is complete without a visit to a west end show. West End Theater is a popular term for mainstream professional theatre staged in the large theatres of "Theatreland" in and near the West End of London. Along with New York's Broadway theatre, West End theater is usually considered to represent the highest level of commercial theater in the English-speaking world. I watched again for 2 shows among more than 20 that time. I rate the Les Miserables as 9.5of10, followed by The Commitments at 6.5of10. My criteria is based on the stage production and over-all impact it gave to me. Tickets are purchased online, around week before. "Less Miserables", October 04 for 22.5GBP on Upper Circle seat. "The Commitments", October 05 for 15GBP on Balcony seat but upgraded to Dress Circle during the play.

Les Miserables (which I think the best among the 5 I've watched) is a sung-through musical based on the novel Les Misérables by French poet and novelist Victor Hugo. Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister's starving child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.

The Commitments (which I think the least among the 5 I've watched) is a musical written by Roddy Doyle. Based on the novel of the same name, also written by Roddy Doyle, the musical made its West End and world premiere in 2013 at London's Palace Theatre. The show features soul music classics such as Think, (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, Papa Was a Rollin' Stone and Night Train.
