Title casting

Killian Donnelly will be playing the role of Jean Valjean. He is currently playing the role in the West End production of Les Misérables, where his final performance will be Saturday 9th June 2018. 

Prior to his run in Les Misérables, he played the role of Charlie Price in Kinky Boots on Broadway, a role he originated at the Adelphi Theatre in the West End along with many other theatre credits to his name.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh commented: “When I announced the first UK tour of Les Misérables for ten years, I was really delighted that Killian said to me that he would like to continue playing Jean Valjean. 

“No stranger to the original production, having played both Enjolras and Valjean with enormous success, his passionate take on the role will be even greater in the thrilling staging of my new production which has proved to be a worldwide success all over again.”
