DRINK WITH ME TO DAYS GONE BY! Check out the historical, bittersweet, and emotional final bows for Trevor Nunn and John Caird's first and last standing original "revolving" production of THE WORLD'S LONGEST RUNNING SHOW IN WEST END HISTORY…. Les Miserables – Musical after 34 years at the top. Following the final bows, Dean Chisnall (who stars in the iconic lead role of "Jean Vailean") and the company led the sold out crowd in a toast to celebrating the legacy of this iconic production and it's wonderful journey going from London's Barbrican Theatre to the Palace Theatre, and now the Queen's Theatre. The show closes for its home at the Queen's Theater about to go under a full-scale renovation.
During the 4 months the Queen's (soon to be renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theatre) is being renovated, LES MISERABLES will be performed next door at the Gielgud Theatre as an All-Star semi-staged concert production running for 16 weeks only from August 10th, 2019 – November 30th, 2019. Following that engagement and when the renovation is complete, the musical will reopen in the Queen's on December 18th, 2019 with Cameron Mackintosh Ltd and Laurence Connor's critically acclaimed NEW production (initially made for the show's 25th Anniversary back in 2010) that continues to play all over the world (including right now on tour across North America, the United Kingdom, and Asia).
Bravo, Congrats, Au Revoir to the iconic original production of LES MISERABLES that has inspired audiences to DREAM THE DREAM for the past 34 years. Shout out to the cast, musicians, crew, musicians (all past and present), and the creative team.
For LES MISERABLES, TOMORROW ALWAYS COMES!!!
Who is sad to see an iconic production end?
