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 on 2 December which will be streamed LIVE to cinema audiences around the UK, Ireland and the US.
Starring our entirely brilliant London cast headed by Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas, our 16 week limited season at the Gielgud sold out in a few days but now you can storm the barricades to ensure you catch this thrilling live performance direct from the West End in a cinema near you.
For the masses of disappointed fans who couldn't get to see this amazing concert in London this live event will be a unique shared experience of thrilling drama, glorious music and sensational singing performed by an amazing all-star cast and orchestra of over 65 - the like of which you will have never seen before.
If you have ever Dreamed a Dream - this is it!"
Tickets for the cinema presentation can be booked here.
And on a final note for Les Mis fans ...
