Almost a decade since its last tour, the musical Les Misérables will once again visit UK venues when it hits the road this autumn.
Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed Broadway production will open at Curve Leicester for a season from 3rd to 24th November.
It will go on to be performed at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin (5th December to 12th January), the Festival Theatre Edinburgh (22nd January to 16th February) and Manchester Palace Theatre (19th February until 30th March).
Further dates will be announced closer to the opening of the new tour.
Mackintosh said: “Since I first conceived the new production of Les Misérables to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary in 2009, this production has taken the world by storm - more than matching the success of the original, which can now only be seen in London. I am thrilled that modern audiences have embraced this production for the 21st century.”
This new UK staging has scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, and has been seen in North America, South America, Korea, Japan, Canada, Australia, Spain, France, Manila, Singapore, Dubai and Broadway.
