It’s news that has delighted theatre fans across the country. After nearly ten years, a new UK and Ireland tour of Boublil and Schönberg’s Les Misérables will be hitting theatres.
Dates at Curve Leicester, Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin, Festival Theatre Edinburgh and Manchester Palace Theatre were announced yesterday with more venues to come.
“Since I first conceived the new production of “Les Misérables” to celebrate the shows 25th anniversary in 2009, this production has taken the world by storm – more than matching the success of the original, which can now only be seen in London,” Cameron Mackintosh said.
“I am thrilled that modern audiences have embraced this production as Les Mis for the 21st century and it is playing to packed houses all over the world in many languages. It also inspired the hugely successful movie version starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne.
“This latest version comes hot from its recent Broadway triumph (now once again on a sell-out tour of North America) and is even more spectacular than the original. I am very proud that this extraordinary Boublil and Schönberg musical remains as fresh, thrilling and exciting as ever – and people are still storming the barricades for a ticket.”
