Find out if Les Mis is coming to a theater near you.
This month, you’ll have the opportunity to dream the dream once more. A starry concert staging of the popular musical Les Misérables will be coming to movie theaters across North America in December 2019.
The special event is Les Misérables—The Staged Concert, and it follows a recent sold-out run at the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End which commemorated the show's 35th anniversary. According to AMC, “Coinciding with its 35th triumphant year in London's West End, Cameron Mackintosh produced a spectacular sold-out staged concert version at the Gielgud Theatre featuring an all-star cast […]. Now cinema audiences can experience a live broadcast of the musical phenomenon which broke box office records and sold out its entire 16-week season.” Watch a preview of the concert staging, which is reminiscent of the musical's 25th anniversary celebration, below.

This production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s long-running musical stars lauded duo Michael Ball and Alfie Boe as Javert and Jean Valjean, respectively. Ball has a long history with the musical, as he starred in the 1985 world premiere of Les Misérables as Marius Pontmercy. This new concert staging also features Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine and Matt Lucas as Thérnardier. Rob Houchen appears as Marius, Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier, Bradley Jaden as Enjolras, Shan Ako as Éponine, and Lily Kerhoas as Cosette. Throughout the 35th anniversary run, John Owen Jones also appeared as Jean Valjean.
Les Misérables—The Staged Concert will be broadcast in movie theaters on two dates: Sunday, December 8 and Wednesday, December 11, 2019. Find out if a theater near you will be showing the special event at us.lesmisconcert.com, a resource that can also redirect you to sites selling advance tickets.
