Les Miserables – The Staged Concert returns to the Sondheim Theatre from 20 May 2021 headed by stars of the West End cast Jon Robyns, Bradley Jaden and Lucie Jones.
Public excitement for Les Misérables –The Staged Concert, which originally had a sell-out season at the Gielgud in August 2019, has been exceptional. Due to extraordinary public demand the last run of the show in December 2020 sold out within twenty-four hours and was extended twice as a result. Sadly, after the Government’s updated Covid-19 restrictions the show had to be suspended after only 10 performances. Tickets are now on sale.
This spectacular production has a Company of over 50 actors and musicians drawn from the acclaimed West End and National Tour Companies of Les Misérables and will initially play to a 50% seating capacity with strict Covid safety measures in place. Social distancing will be followed front of house, on stage, backstage and throughout the building. The Theatre will move to full capacity as soon as the Government allows for it.
The principal cast includes Jon Robyns as Jean Valjean, Bradley Jaden as Javert, Lucie Jones as Fantine, Shan Ako asÉponine, Harry Apps as Marius, Gerard Carey as Thénardier and Josefina Gabrielle as Madame Thénardier. Further casting will be announced shortly.
