Les Misérables’ Broadway production to tour UK & Ireland

By Robin Johnson, Published February 26, 2018

The Broadway production of Les Misérables will embark on a UK and Ireland tour this Winter, as the West End’s longest-running musical invites audiences nationwide to join in its crusade.

After nearly a decade since the last UK tour sold out, Boublil and Schönberg’s spectacular Broadway and London musical will open at Curve Leicester in November 2018, before playing the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin, Festival Theatre Edinburgh and Manchester Palace Theatre. Further dates are due to be announced on the show website.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh said, “Since I first conceived the new production of ‘Les Misérables’ 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.”

The spectacular new staging of the West End classic 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 magnificent score of Les Misérables includes the songs I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, Stars, Do You Hear The People Sing? and One Day More.

The show follows one man’s determination to survive and leave his past behind – and another’s unwavering, vengeful persecution.
