The socially distanced Les Misérables Concert will open at the Sondheim Theatre in May 2021. The cast includes Jon Robyns as Jean Valjean, Bradley Jaden as Javert, Lucie Jones as Fantine, Shan Ako as Éponine, Harry Apps as Marius, Gerard Carey as Thénardier and Josefina Gabrielle as Madame Thénardier. Further casting is yet to be announced. The show is directed by James Powell and Jean-Pierre Van Der Spuy and conducted by Alfonso Casado Trigo.
About the return of the show, Producer Cameron Mackintosh said :
“As the West End marks the first anniversary of the enforced closure of British Theatre due to the pandemic, I am delighted to announce that the acclaimed spectacular staged concert of Les Misérables , which previously sold out all performances on Shaftesbury Avenue, will return to the Sondheim Theatre on 20 May 2021 with a reduced capacity and necessary social distancing requirements.”
The Staged Concert will play from 20 May 2021 until 5 September 2021. The producer also announced that, if possible, the venue will move to full capacity as soon as the Government allows for it.
Depending on government guidance, the full production should open at capacity on September 25th 2021.
