Meet the new Les Misérables London cast

So, the longest-running musical in the world is going through some changes. Don’t worry, it’ll still have all your favourite songs, but things will look a bit different. There’s a brand new Les Misérables cast set to take to the stage at Queen’s Theatre, London, from next month, and we’re absolutely thrilled.

From well-known faces to actors making their professional debuts, here are the new Les Mis cast members in London, where you might have seen them before, and a little bit about those playing your favourite Les Misérables characters.

Dean Chisnall will play Valjean in the Les Misérables cast

Dean Chisnall (Jean Valjean)

Playing the central character and fugitive-on-the-run Jean Valjean in the Les Mis cast from 11 June is Dean Chisnall. Dean’s theatre career has seen him travel all over the UK playing some of your favourite characters. His most recent theatre credits include the UK tour of Blood Brothers, The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ The Musical at the Menier Chocolate Factory, and Working at the Southwark Playhouse. You might also recognise him from his turn as the green ogre Shrek on the West End, or from Love Never Dies.

Bradley Jaden will play Javert in the Les Mis cast

From 23 July, Bradley Jaden will play Jean Valjean’s adversary, policeman Javert. Bradley is currently starring as heartthrob Fiyero in Wicked. This move will mark his return to the Les Misérables London cast, having originally played Enjolras in the 30th Anniversary cast. Like Dean, he’s also been in Shrek The Musical at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Plus, you might recognise him from the telly box because he’s been in ITV’s Emmerdale and Sugar Rush on Channel 4.

Amara Okereke will play Cosette in the Les Mis cast

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

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

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

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.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
