Internationally acclaimed singer Alfie Boe and Little Britain’s Matt Lucas have been confirmed as the new stars of Les Miserables in London.
Their turns in the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2 last October brought the house down and were some of the most memorable performances of the night. And now Les Miserables producer Cameron Mackintosh has confirmed that Alfie Boe and Matt Lucas are to star in the original production of Les Miserables at the Queen’s Theatre in London, from 23 June 2011.
Alfie Boe is one of the country’s leading tenors and best selling recording artists and will play Jean Valjean in the show until 26 November 2011. Matt Lucas is one of Britain’s most successful comic actors and writers, with TV credits including Little Britain and Come Fly With Me. He will play Thénardier until 10 September 2011.
They will join a cast that will also include Hadley Fraser as Javert and Gareth Gates as Marius.
