With performances set to start on the 5th December, it has been confirmed that the production will extend its run due to audience capacity restrictions.
It has been officially announced that the staged concert production of Les Miserables is now extending its run at the Sondheim Theatre to help those who have booked tickets and won’t be able to attend due to the three tier system in place as well as the limitations of audience capacity in theatres to 50%.
Now extending until the 28th February 2021, the extra performances will also allow those who haven’t been able to purchase tickets to do so. Before public booking opens for the new performances at 10am on 4th December 2020, priority booking will be given to those who have already booked tickets.
The company of over 50 actors and musicians are now set to play to audiences of under 600 in line with the new restrictions. This staged concert production of the popular musical is set to star: Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine, Matt Lucas as Thénardier, Rob Houchen as Marius, Bradley Jaden as Enjolras, Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier, Shan Ako as Éponine, Amara Okereke asCosette and at certain performances John Owen-Jones will again play the role of Jean Valjean. The Company also includes Kelly Agbowu, Joseph Anthony, Harry Apps, Charlie Burn, Gerard Carey, Earl Carpenter, Richard Carson, Danny Colligan, Rodney Earl Clarke, Matthew Dale, Matt Dempsey, Josefina Gabrielle, Nic Greenshields, Jessie Hart, Holly-Anne Hull, Ebony Jonelle, Connor Jones, Jessica Joslin, Luke McCall, Frances Mayli McCann, Leo Miles, Corrine Priest, Aaron Pryce-Lewis, Jon Robyns, Grainne Renihan and Samuel Wyn-Morris.
For the new performances the majority of the Company will be able to continue, however the four principals – Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas – will only be able to play a limited number of these dates due to previous commitments. The stars of the new full production of Les Misérables including Jon Robyns, Bradley Jaden, Gerard Carey and Josefina Gabrielle, which opened earlier this year at the Sondheim theatre, plus the stars of the UK National Tour, Dean Chisnall and Nic Greenshields, will be leading this Company for the extension period.
Les Misérables is 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.
