With the DVD release of the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2 scheduled for next month, one memory and resource on the history of the musical is also available. The souvenir brochure printed exclusively for the event can be purchased online.

The 13.5x9.5" softcover brochure is filled with 80 colorful pages. Besides the history of the musical and the cast list, there are pages devoted to the advertising the show through 25 years in London, a list of the various cast recordings, photos of the programs from the international productions and a look at the poster girl who has been re-dressed to befit the city where the musical was presented. For fans of the show, this is a definite commemorative item to add to your collection of 'Les Mis' souvenirs. It serves as a companion to the now out-of-print book by Edward Behr which documented the musical's early years in The Complete Book of Les Miserables published in both hardcover and softcover editions.

The brochure can be purchased from Dress Circle for £12 (US$18) or at Les Miserables website shop for £12.50. Other merchandise also available.
