After nearly a decade since the previous immensely successful UK tour sold out within days, Cameron Mackintosh has announced that the acclaimed Broadway production of Boublil and Schönberg’s LES MISÉRABLES will open at Curve Leicester, running from Saturday 3rd to Saturday 24th November 2018 (press night 14th November 2018), before playing the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin (5th December 2018 to 12th January 2019), Festival Theatre Edinburgh (22nd January to 16th February 2019) and Manchester Palace Theatre (19th February to 30th March 2019). Further dates are to be announced.

Cameron Mackintosh said, “Since I first conceived the new production of “Les Misérables” to celebrate the shows 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 latest version comes hot from its recent Broadway triumph (now once again on a sell-out tour of North America) and is even more spectacular than the original. I am very proud that this extraordinary Boublil and Schönberg musical remains as fresh, thrilling and exciting as ever – and people are still storming the barricades for a ticket.”

This fabulous 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.
