Background


The Original London production at the Queen's Theatre will play until 13 July 2019.


The theatre will then close for four months of rebuilding work both backstage and in the auditorium as well as adding many much-needed new lavatories to the front of house.


This work will restore architect W.G. Sprague's original boxes and loges which, along with the entire front of house, were destroyed by a bomb in 1940 and caused the theatre to be closed for 20 years.


The restored Queen's Theatre will reopen in December of 2019 with the New production of LES MISÉRABLES, continuing its phenomenal run indefinitely.


A brilliant company is now being put together and bookings will open in February.


While the Queen's Theatre is being restored, LES MISÉRABLES will continue in performance on Shaftesbury Avenue with exciting plans being announced shortly for a four-month season at the Gielgud Theatre from the end of July 2019.

Set in 19th-century France, ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole.


When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.


Features the songs 'I Dreamed A Dream', 'Bring Him Home', 'One Day More' and 'On My Own'.
