Smoke in Queen's Theatre Causes LES MISERABLES Evacuation in West End

During the first act of the Saturday matinee performance of Les Miserables, the Queen's Theatre was evacuated due to a fire concern.

Firemen say the concern was aroused due to a "smoking electrical room" inside the theatre, and audience members posted to Twitter saying that the theatre blacked out part way through the show.

Cast members posted light-hearted pictures of each other (such as the one above) waiting outside the theatre still in costume as the firemen cleared up the theatre.

After the fact, the official LES MISERABLES Twitter posted some pictures saying, "A few pics of today! Keeping each other warm, thanks @MissSaigonUK for the hospitality"

Les Miserables is currently playing at London's Queen's Theatre, 51 Shaftesbury Avenue. The production stars Peter Lockyer as Jean Valjean, David Thaxton as Javert and Celinde Schoenmaker as Fantine.

Seen by more than 65 million people in 42 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, the musical still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 29th year.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Miserables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

Featuring the songs "I Dreamed A Dream", "Bring Him Home", "One Day More" and "On My Own" - Les Miserables is the show of shows.
