David Thaxton to return to Les Misérables as Javert

By Rachel McCarty Published 6 November 2017

From Monday 22 January 2018, David Thaxton will return to the cast of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre in the role of Javert.

David Thaxton previously played Javert in 2014, and has also played the role of Enjolras in Les Mis. His additional theatre credits include Giorgio in Passion at the Donmar Warehouse, for which he won an Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical, Pilate in Jesus Christ Superstar at the Regent’s Park Theatre, Raoul in Love Never Dies at the Adelphi and Major John Howard in Only The Brave at Wales Millennium Centre.

David will join Olivier Award nominee Killian Donnelly as Jean Valjean, Carley Stenson as Fantine, Steven Meo as Thénardier, Karis Jack as Eponine, Jacqueline Tate as Madame Thénardier, Hyoie O’Grady as Enjolras, Paul Wilkins as Marius and Charlotte Kennedy as Cosette.

Cameron Mackintosh’s legendary production of Boublil and Schonberg’s Les Misérables is now the world’s longest running musical, in its record-breaking 33rd West End year.

The show is a musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s great humanitarian novel of one man’s determined survival in the face of another’s vengeful persecution.

Set amid the social and political struggles of 19th century France, West End favourite Les Misérables tells the story of former prisoner Jean Valjean, who is pursued for decades by his policeman nemesis, Javert.

Their epic cat-and-mouse journey will take them from the French fields to the gritty Parisian sewers, amidst an enthralling story of broken dreams, unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
