Les Miserables returns to Broadway in this brand new production from Cameron Mackintosh.
The global mega-hit musical Les Miserables is back on Broadway at the Imperial Theater where it ran for more than 5,000 performances.
A triumph around the world, and now a smash-hit movie, Les Mis has played in over 40 countries and is now back on Broadway in a brand new production by Laurence Connor and James Powell.
An extraordinary cast includes Ramin Karimloo as Jean Valjean, WCaissie Levy as Fantine, Nikki M. James as Eponine, Andy Mientus as Marius, Charlotte Maltby as Cosette), Kyle Scatliffe as Enjolras, Cliff Saunders as Thenardier) and Keala Settle as Madame Thenardier.
Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production of Alain Boublil & Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical masterpiece features a spine-tingling score including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Castle on a Cloud,” “Bring Him Home,” “One My Own,” “Do You Hear the People Sing,” and “Stars”.
Romance, revolution, comedy, and tragedy overwhelm the audience in the most successful musical ever known.
Set in France from 1815 to 1832 and based on Victor Hugo’s epic, Les Miserables tells the heroic tale of the saintly Jean Valjean and his pursuit by the intractable policeman Javert. The story journeys from Valjean’s dank prison to the barricades of a student uprising and the sewers of Paris as Javert relentlessly tracks down Valjean whose only crime is doing good. There’s also the heartbreaking Fantine, the tragic Eponine, the valiant Marius, the sweet Cosette, and the comically vulgar Thernadiers, each swept up in this unforgotten spectacle.
