Cameron Mackintosh presents a star-studded production of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert at the Sondheim Theatre.
Following a spectacular sell-out production at the Gielgud Theatre in 2019, Les Misérables – The Staged Concert returns for 6-weeks only this December.
Led by Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean*, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine and Matt Lucas as Thénardier will return alongside a company of over 50 actors and musicians.
A compelling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption, Les Misérables is a timeless musical testament to the survival of the human spirit against all of the odds. Featuring the songs “I Dreamed A Dream”, “Bring Him Home”, “One Day More” and “On My Own” – Les Misérables is the show to end all shows.
Les Misérables The All-Star Staged Concert will run from 5 December 2020 until 17 January 2021 at the Sondheim Theatre, London.
What’s the Story?
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his quest for redemption.
Having served 17 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread for his starving niece, a kindly Bishop inspires Valjean to begin a new life.
Breaking parole, Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert.
When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
