Les Misérables to move to different London theatre

Date Posted: 12/01/2019

Popular West End Show, Les Misérables, will be moving to a different London theatre for four months whilst refurbishments are being done to its current home, the Queen’s Theatre.

The production, which features songs such as I Dreamed a Dream and Bring Him Home, will continue running at the Queen’s Theatre until July 2019, when it will close due to rebuilding work taking place to the theatre.

In the meantime, the musical with play a four-mouth long season at the Gielgud theatre, opening at the end of July 2019.

The Queen’s Theatre will therefore remain closed for the duration of the four months whilst building work takes place. The theatre will then reopen in December 2019 with a new company being put together for the opening which will run indefinitely.

Group tickets are available for Les Misérables in London and group organisers can find contact details under the ‘Tickets’ page of the official website.

About Les Misérables

The musical is set against the backdrop of 19th century France and tells the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean who is being hunted by a ruthless policeman, Javert after he breaks parole. Meanwhile Valjean takes care of the young daughter of a factory worker, and their lives changes forever.

Les Misérables has been performed in 52 countries and 22 languages and has won over 100 international awards. 

Producer, Cameron Mackintosh commented: “I am continually amazed that Les Miserable in its fourth decade continues to break new ground and new records. The show’s astonishing success is tribute to the story’s power to move and inspire which is at the heart of both the original novel and the musical. Tomorrow will always come for Les Misérables”.

The tour

The new touring production, which has just opened in Dublin, has already reportedly taken a record-breaking advance of over £30 million with most dates sold out until January 2020 already, including Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and Plymouth. However, there are still tickets available for showings in Milton Keynes, Bradford, Newcastle and Liverpool.
