Due to popular demand, Cameron Mackintosh has announced a two week extension to the run of Les Misérables -The Staged Concert.
Playing at the Sondheim Theatre from the 5th December, the news of the two week extension means that the concert production of the West End musical is now booking until the 31st January 2021.
Talking about the news, Cameron Mackintosh said: “The phenomenal speed at which the Christmas season of Les Misérables -The Staged Concert has sold out in just twenty-four hours has astonished us all. To try to accommodate the tens of thousands of people still trying to get tickets we are adding sixteen extra performances today at noon. It is wonderful that the public are so enthusiastic to come back to see a great show safely in the West End.”
The return of the concert production was announced on the final of Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night, following a performance from the casts of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert, The Phantom of the Opera and Mary Poppins. With a reduced seating capacity of 750, Covid safety measures and social distancing will be in place front of house, on stage, backstage and throughout the building.
The cast for this latest run of the production is set to include: Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine and Matt Lucas as Thénardier. At certain performances John Owen-Jones will again play the role of Jean Valjean.
Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Les Misérables was written by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and is based on the novel by Victor Hugo. It has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer and original French text by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel with additional material by James Fenton and adaptation by Trevor Nunn and John Caird.
