Les Miserables

I have been passing through Piccadilly Circus many times and been wanting to watch this theatre play since then but there's no opportunity at all, but now. I bought my ticket from lastminute.com here and it's really cheaper but seats weren't guaranteed. I got mine in stalls although it was the cheapest when i booked it, yey!! PS I bought my Pricilla tickets here and it was in stall seats as well.
Cosette when shes's still young.
We were surrounded with teens, I thought the play is really educational. I remembered my Uni days when we have to make a reflection about what we've watched. feeling young. (kilig!). Hahah!
 I love these light changing colours ^^
 Anyways, the play is basically about the life of Jean who was imprisoned for stealing bread for her starving sister and family. Upon release, he did not escape his past and no one accept him for being an ex-convict. Few years later, he used the name Madeleine and became wealthy and owned a factory.  On the other hand, there was a lady name Fantine who have a daughter named Cosette. Fantine was fired from the factory because people discovered that she had a child out of wedlock and became a prostitute to pay for  for her daughter's 'care'. She was imprisoned for resisting for the attack of a wealthy man who's trying to harass her. Upon hearing her story, Valjean tried to help Fantine but shes's dying so she asked Valjean to look after her daughter. With her request, Valjean look for Cosette and took her from the family that forced her to work at young age. He treated her as his own and he stood like a father for her . . .
I've said too much, watch the play and it's worth it or simply read the book.
The Play started at 19:30 and finished at roughly 23:00. We headed straight to Friday's
for some drinks, and foods of course. 

I had large frozen strawberry margarita and sicilian kiss and these. I do not eat fresh celery stem before but I liked it in this platter.
Amazing night indeed with lovely people, nice play and good food.
