Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concert
Les Miserables Concert tickets are the hottest in town as an all-star cast assemble to perform the spectacular musical
A limited sixteen week fully-staged concert production of Les Miserables will play at the Gielgud Theatre whilst the Queen’s Theatre (original home of Les Mis) undergoes refurbishment.
Les Miserables, which has been playing in London for over 30 years, is based upon the French novel by Victor Hugo. The show is set in late 19th century France and tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former criminal attempting to clear his name and convict status, and on the run from policeman Javert. Whilst on the run, he meets Fantine, a woman who turned to sex work after being fired from factory work. On her deathbed, Valjean vows to look after her young daughter Cosette. Years later, Cosette is a young woman in love with young revolutionary Marius, who is part of the student revolutions in Paris.
The musical has played for over 30 years, with Tony Award-winning score by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michael Schönberg. Many other productions have been mounted internationally, including a current UK touring production. In 2012, the musical was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film starring Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman.
This sixteen-week run will see previous stars of the show reunited. Alfie Boe will play Jean Valjean, reprising his role from the 25th Anniversary concert, whilst Michael Ball will play his nemesis Javert. Ball was part of the original West End cast as Marius. Carrie Hope Fletcher (Heathers the Musical) who is the longest-running Eponine in the London production, will be switching roles and playing Fantine. Comedian Matt Lucas, known for his work on Little Britain, will play Thernadier, also reprising his role from the 25th Anniversary concert. Katy Secombe joins the cast as Madame Thenardier, and John Owen-Jones will play Jean Valjean for three performances a week (Monday, Wednesday matinee, and Thursday).
Rob Houchen and Bradley Jaden will also be joining the cast.
