With just two weeks left to run of Les Miserables - The Staged Concert, performing at the Sondheim Theatre, the casting for the full return of the world's favourite musical, Les Miserables has now been named prior to its return to the West End stage from September 25th.
Speaking of Les Miserables’ return, producer Cameron Mackintosh said that “After 18 long months of unprecedented shut down of the commercial theatre, it is thrilling to see the West End reopen with all its major productions and safely welcome back audiences who have been so supportive to our industry. The staged concert of Les Misérables has been uniquely able to keep the large scale theatrical flag flying on Shaftesbury Avenue, clocking up a record breaking 250 performance run.
It is hugely gratifying, as the show celebrates its 36th birthday this October at the Sondheim Theatre, that Les Misérables continues to be one of the most popular and contemporary musicals of all time.”
The new company is to feature Jon Robyns, who will take the role of Jean Valjean, Gerard Carey as Thénardier, Bradley Jaden as Javert, Josefina Gabrielle, Harry Apps as Marius, and as Madame Thénardier who are all currently starring in the concert production. The role of Fantine will be played by Chanice Alexander-Burnett, who will be joined by Charlie Burn as Cosette, Jordan Shaw as Enjolras, and Sha Dessi, who makes her debut in the West End playing the role of Eponine.
The full cast of Les Miserables is completed by Emma Barr, Kathy Peacock, Kelly Agbowu, Matt Dempsey, Danny Colligan, Richard Carson, Cellen Chugg Jones, Rodney Earl Clarke, Matthew Dale, Jessie Hart, Connor Jones, Jessica Joslin, Michael Kholwadia, Sarah Lark, Claire O’Leary, Sake Wijers, Georgie Lovatt, Ellie Ann Lowe, Luke McCall, Leo Miles, Mark Pearce, Sam Peggs, Samuel Wyn-Morris, Mared Williams, and Phoebe Williams.
Les Miserables is the world's best-loved musical and had reopened as a brand new production at the Sondheim Theatre as recently as December 2019, continuing its record-breaking uninterrupted 35 year run. The much-acclaimed show features classic songs by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, including “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables.” and “I Dreamed A Dream”
Les Miserables will return to the Sondheim Theatre on September 25th.
