The Palace hosted the original London productions of The Sound of Music and Jesus Christ Superstar which played for eight years. Other important musicals were Finian's Rainbow, King's Rhapsody, Cabaret, Song and Dance, The Woman in White, Spamalot and the Royal Shakespeare Company's Les Misérables (1985) which became the longest run in the building's history with 7602 performances before transferring to the Queen's Theatre in 2004.
