Les Misérables extends West End run to 2025

Jenifer

The original West End adaptation of Les Misérables gears up for its 40th anniversary in 2025. The musical has added dates to its roster and is booking till 29 March 2025.

Les Misérables opened at the Sondheim Theatre on 8 October 1985. It is the longest-running musical on West End and the second longest-running musical in the world, following The Fantasticks.

The original cast included icons like Colm Wilkinson (as Jean Valjean), Roger Allam (as Javert), and Patti LuPone (as Fantine). The extended run features Milan van Waardenburg (replacing Peter Jöback as Jean Valjean), Stewart Clarke as Javert, and Katie Hall as Fantine, as well as a stellar ensemble. With an equally gifted crew that includes music by Claude-Michel Schönberg and designs by Matt Kinley that are inspired by Victor Hugo's paintings, the show is as much a heart-wrenching tale of redemption as it is an ode to theater itself.

And rain will make the flowers grow

Les Misérables, originally a French concept album released in the '80s, is a musical set in 19th-century France. It follows a peasant named Jean Valjean as he re-enters society following a nineteen-year incarceration. His crime? Stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister's starving child. What ensues is a sordid tale of revolution, redemption, and resilience, which the West End adaptation captures perfectly.

As the show nears its 40th year, fans excitedly await a celebration that includes a UK and Ireland concert tour titled Les Misérables The Arena Spectacular set to kick off in 2024 and continue through 2025. Slated to feature over 110 actors, musicians, and crew members, fans can expect some familiar faces to reprise their roles through the show's run.

Immerse yourself in the masterpiece Les Misérables, playing on West End now.
