Les Mis 02 Evening Concert affected by tube strike

Well it’s the last two performances today for the Les Miserables touring cast starring John Owen-Jones and Gareth Gates, but it has all been a bit overshadowed by the two Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concerts at the 02 Arena tomorrow.  A few tickets are still available including some £10 tickets available for seats with views restricted by the cameras which are being used to broadcast the show live to 160 cinemas in the UK and 1,100 screens around the world.

There is a  cast of more than 500 artists and musicians being led by Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Nick Jonas as Marius, Norm Lewis as Javert, Matt Lucas as Thenardier, Lea Salonga as Fantine, Jenny Galloway as Madame Thenardier, Katie Hall as Cosette, Ramin Karimloo as Enjolras and Samantha Barks as Eponine.

The two Jean Valjeans leading the London company from the Queen’s Theatre and the touring production are Simon Bowman and John Owen-Jones respectively.  The huge ensemble will also include members of the original 1985 London company.

There are two concerts tomorrow: a 1.30pm matinee and 7:00 pm evening performance.  If you are going to the evening show be warned there is a 24-hour tube strike  from early Sunday evening.  Cameron Mackintosh says that The O2 are working with Transport for London to minimise disruption by running as many Jubilee Line trains as they can.

Another option is to pre-book seats on The O2's high-speed river service which operated from Waterloo and London Bridge or on the regular Thames Clipper services.
