Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concert Tickets
Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas are set to star in a special concert production of Les Miserables in London at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End this summer. Tickets for this hugely exciting production are on sale now.
The concert production of the Les Miserables musical is set to open temporarily to the Gielgud Theatre in the summer with this concert production, running from 10th August 2019 while the Queen’s Theatre, now renamed the Sondheim Theatre, is refurbished.
Michael Ball will return to the production after he starred in its London premiere at the Barbican in 1985. Ball played Marius Pontmercy in the original production, which quickly transferred to the Palace Theatre in the West End. Ball will play Javert in this special concert production of the musical. (See below for days Michael Ball will not be performing.)
Alfie Boe will play Jean Valjean in the musical. Ball and Boe have previously toured the country together on numerous occasions, and have released two number one albums together. Boe has previously performed the role of Jean Valjean in the musical at the Queen's in 2011. (See below for note on Alfie Boe's performance schedule.)
Les Miserables In Concert will also feature Carrie Hope Fletcher, who heads back to where her career began as a child playing Young Eponine in the musical in 2001. She returned to the production in 2013 to play the older version of the character, and will take on the role of Fantine in the show in this concert production. Fletcher recently starred as Veronica in the West End production of Heathers the Musical.
Matt Lucas will also appear in the concert. The Little Britain actor takes on the role of Thénardier in the concert after he played the part at a 25th anniversary concert of the show in 2010, and then took on the role in the full West End production in 2011.
Further casting for Les Miserables in Concert is set to be announced, with tickets now on sale.
The musical premiered at the Barbican Centre in 1985 directed by Trevor Nunn, and starring Michael Ball, Patti LuPone, Colm Wilkinson and Roger Allam. It then transferred to the Palace Theatre during the same year after sweeping success, and then to the Queen’s Theatre in 2004.
Les Miserables in Concert runs from 10th August 2019 at the Gielgud Theatre in London.
