Les Miserables Broadway production to tour UK

Cameron Mackintosh’s Broadway production of Boublil and Schönberg’s musical Les Miserables will embark on a UK and Ireland tour this winter.

It will start at Curve Leicester (November 3-24) before playing the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin (December 5-January 12); Festival Theatre Edinburgh (January 22–February 16) and Manchester Palace Theatre (February 19-March 30). Further dates will be announced.

Theatre producer Mackintosh said: “Since I first conceived the new production of Les Miserables to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary in 2009, this production has taken the world by storm – more than matching the success of the original, which can now only be seen in London.

“I am thrilled that modern audiences have embraced this production as Les Mis for the 21st century and it is playing to packed houses all over the world in many languages.

“It also inspired the hugely successful movie version starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne.”

This new staging has scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, and has been seen in North America, South America, Korea, Japan, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, Manila, Singapore, Dubai and Broadway.

Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel, Boublil and Schönberg’s score includes the songs I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home, and Do You Hear the People Sing?.
