Michael Ball & Alfie Boe to lead cast in fully staged concert version of Les Miserables at Gielgud

The Original London production of Les Miserables is playing at the Queen’s Theatre until 13th  July 2019 when the theatre closes for four months for  rebuilding and restoration work both backstage and in the auditorium.  The restored Queen’s Theatre will reopen in December 2019 a a date to be announced with a new production of Les Miserables continuing its run with a new company currently being  assembled and bookings due to open later this month.

Les Miserables is also on tour until next year.

While the Queen’s Theatre is being restored, Les Miserables  will continue  for a four-month season at the Gielgud Theatre.  Baz in today's Mail has just announced that this will be in the form of a fully staged concert version for a sixteen week run  from August 10th to  30th November starring Michael Ball as Inspector Javert and Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean (for three performances a week the role of Jean Valjean will be played by John Owen-Jones**) with  Carrie Hope Fletcher (Fantine) and Matt Lucas (M.Thenardier), Katy Secombe as Madame Thenardier, Rob Houchen as Marius and Bradley Jaden as Enjolras, Shan Ako is the street urchin, Eponine, and newcomer Lily Kerhoas will portray Valjean's ward, Cosette leading  a cast and orchestra of over 65.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh said: "Les Misérables is the only musical ever that has been equally successful on stage, film, in concert and in the classroom. Its spectacular staged concerts are legendary successes, just as popular as the stage show. I am thrilled that the plan to keep Les Misérables running in London with a staged concert version on Shaftesbury Avenue during the enforced closure period has attracted such a stellar cast, with Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher, John Owen Jones, Matt Lucas and Katy Secombe, who all have a very close personal connection to the history of the show."
