From 12 June, there will be major cast changes at the West End production of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre, which is now in its record breaking 33rd year.
Cameron Mackintosh is delighted to announce that Killian Donnelly will star as ‘Jean Valjean’. He joins Les Misérables fresh from Broadway where he is currently playing the lead role of ‘Charlie Price’ in Kinky Boots. West End leading lady and former Hollyoaks star Carley Stenson will join the company as ‘Fantine’ and Hayden Tee returns to play ‘Javert’, having performed the role at The Queen’s Theatre until 22 April this year.
Now in its 33rd sell out year in London, Les Misérables originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen’s Theatre on 3 April 2004 where it is still playing to standing room only. When Les Misérables celebrated its 21st London birthday on 8 October 2006, it became the World’s Longest Running Musical, surpassing the record previously held by Cats in London’s West End. In October 2014 the West End production broke another record by celebrating its historic 12,000th performance. Seen by nearly 70 million people worldwide in 45 countries and in 22 languages, Les Misérables is undisputedly one of the world’s most popular musicals ever written.
