Returning to the principle case are Jon Robyns as Jean Valjean, Bradley Jaden as Javert, Gerard Carey as Thénardier’, Josefina Gabrielle as Madame Thénardier’ and Harry Apps as Marius, and we can’t wait to see them #BackOnStage!
There are four new faces in this exciting line-up, including a West End debut, so we thought we’d do a little deep dive into these new actors and where you might have seen them before.
Fantine – Chanice Alexander-Burnett
After training at the London School of Musical Theatre, Chanice has starred in several West End productions. She’s performed in the ensemble cast of Motown The Musical, The Book Of Mormon and Beautiful: The Carol King Musical. She also performed as Angie in the Madness musical Our House at the Union Theatre. This is her first principal role in a West End Musical and we can’t wait to see her interpretation of this classic role.
Cosette – Charlie Burn
Charlie Burn only graduated from The Arts Educational School in 2019, so she’s relatively new to the professional world of theatre. She made her debut as Cosette in the UK & Ireland Tour of Les Misérables, before going on to continue the role in Les Misérables: The Staged Concert. While she’s performed in workshops of Back To The Future and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella recently, we’re glad she’s going back to her Les Mis roots and can’t wait to see her in the full-scale production.
Eponine – Sha Dessi
Sha only graduated Mountview Academy this year, so this is her West End debut! While training she’s performed in Kipps, Rent, New York, Medea and The Secret Garden. What an incredible role for a debut, we can’t wait to see what she’s got!
Enjolras – Jordan Shaw
Jordan Shaw has an impressive list of musical theatre credits under his belt, including Disney’s Lion King, Motown The Musical, Cats and Miss Saigon as well as the Olivier Award-winning National Theatre revival of Follies. You might have also caught him on TV in All Star Musicals, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show and Galavant.
We’re so excited to have Les Misérables #BackOnStage, and can’t wait to see this classic back in full swing. You can grab your Les Misérables tickets through the link below and get ready to be swept along with a wave of revolutionary passion!
And if you can’t wait that long to get your Les Mis fix, don’t forget that they’ll be performing alongside all your other favourite shows at West End LIVE in Trafalgar Square on the weekend of the 18 and 19 September. Check out the full line-up here!
