Les Miserables Opening on Broadway in March 2014

Cameron Mackintosh just just announced that his new production of Les Miserables will open at a Shubert Theatre on  Broadway in March 2014.

The US national tour of the new production has been a sell-out breaking box offices since it began in November 2010. It has played in 64 cities grossing more than $130 million.

Cameron Mackintosh said: To my constant surprise, my productions continue to be enjoyed as much as ever by audiences all around the world and I'm thrilled to have the unique chance of redoing them all over as if they were brand new shows. I'm even more delighted that they are proving just as big hits at the box office in their new form as the originals, having recently reinvented Oliver!, Phantom and Miss Saigon to similar acclaim to the new Les Miserables. It's marvelous that modern audiences are embracing them as contemporary musicals rather than revivals. I am delighted that Broadway audiences will now join the millions of Americans who have already flocked to see this glorious new staging and spectacular re-imagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo.
