Les Misérables fans rejoice, the sold-out concert production currently storming the Gielgud Theatre in London will be broadcast to cinemas next month.
Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concert will hit the big screen on 2 December 2019 as a special additional performance of the production is broadcast live to cinemas in the UK, Ireland and the US.
Announcing the cinema screening, producer Cameron Mackintosh said: “The extraordinary sell-out success and response to our spectacular new theatrical concert staging of Les Misérables has been phenomenal, so we are thrilled to add one final extra performance.”
Mackintosh added the event would be a “unique shared experience of thrilling drama, glorious music and sensational singing performed by an all-star cast and an orchestra of over 65”.
Starring Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas the concert version has been running at the Gielgud Theatre whilst its home, the newly renamed Sondheim Theatre undergoes extensive refurbishment. The concert plays its last scheduled performance at the Gielgud on 30 November 2019.
Tickets to the performance on 2 December 2019 will be allocated by a lottery.
For those that can’t make the cinema, it was also announced that the show will be released on DVD next year, and will also be released as an album.
Les Misérables is written by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and produced by Mackintosh.
The 2009 staging of the production will re-open the Sondheim Theatre on 18 December 2019.
Les Misérables is booking from 18 December 2019 until 4 April 2020 at the Sondheim Theatre, London.
