LONDON – Cameron Mackintosh has announced full touring dates for the UK and Ireland tour of his acclaimed production of the Boublil and Schönberg’s Les Miserables.
The musical will open at Glasgow Theatre Royal on 24th November 2021 where it will run until 1st January 2022, before playing Liverpool Empire and other venues. As previously announced, the cast will include Dean Chisnall as ‘Jean Valjean’, Nic Greenshields as ‘Javert’ and Katie Hall as ‘Fantine’ with full casting to be announced soon.
Since Cameron Mackintosh first conceived this new production of “Les Misérables” in 2009 to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary it has taken the world by storm. Originally touring the UK throughout 2009/10, concluding with a season at the Barbican, it has also played across the globe including Broadway where the Huffington Post proclaimed this new production, “Sizzles for the 21st Century” and the New York Times called it, “Thrilling, Spectacular and Unforgettable”.
This production opened triumphantly in the West End at the Sondheim Theatre in January 2020 to critical acclaim, and it will reopen there in September 2021 following a limited run of The Staged Concert. It will also open in Tokyo in May 2021 and will commence another tour of North America in Autumn 2022. It has firmly been embraced by modern audiences everywhere as a Les Mis for the 21st century. The tour of this production has sold out in record breaking time in each venue it has played since opening in 2018.
