The worldwide phenomenon, Les Miserables (‘Les Mis’ or ‘The Glums’ to its friends) has announced that it will now be taking bookings until 27 Oct 2012 at the Queen’s Theatre in London.
The show is based on the original novel by Victor Hugo and was adapted for the stage by Alain Boubil and Claude-Michel Schonberg and produced by Sir Cameron Mackintosh.
The Queen’s Theatre hasn’t always been the home of Les Miserables, the original version of the musical resided at the Barbican Theatre when it first opened in the West End in October 1985, the show transferred a month later to the Palace Theatre where it stayed until April 2004 when it moved to its current home.
Les Miserables is set in 19th century France and tells the story of love and bravery during the revolution.
The stage production is one of the most successful and enduring of all time; it has been seen by almost 60 million people worldwide and has been shown in 42 countries and adapted into 21 different languages.
Cameron Mackintosh is currently producing a big screen adaptation of the show which is set to be released in December next year. The film will be directed by the Oscar winning director of The King’s Speech, Tom Hooper and is set to star Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Ann Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter.
