The longest-running musical in the West End carries on its continuous run! Transferring to the Gielgud Theatre, Les Miserables – The All-Star Staged Concert will play for just 16 weeks, with a cast including Alfie Boe reprising critically-acclaimed performances as well as some of the biggest names in the West End taking to the stage. With timeless songs including “On My Own” and “I Dreamed A Dream”, Les Misérables has been produced around the world in 44 countries, translated into 22 languages and been seen by over 70 million people.
Alfie Boe plays Jean Valjean, reprising his five month run as the lead character at the Queen’s Theatre in 2011. Prior to this, Boe played Valjean in 2010 for the show’s 25th-anniversary concert at the O2 Arena as part of a Valjean quartet including Colm Wilkinson, John Owen-Jones and Simon Bowman. In 2015, Boe went Stateside with the role taking over as Valjean from Ramin Karimloo.
Michael Ball will play Javert. Originating the role of Marius in the West End production of Les Misérables in 1985, Ball reprised his performance as the young student in the 10th-anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Over an illustrious West End career across 35 years, his recent stage credits include Anatoly in Chess at the London Coliseum and the title role in the 2012 production of Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi Theatre.
Carrie Hope Fletcher will star as Fantine. Fletcher made her West End debut as young Eponine at nine years old and in 2013, she made theatre history as the first British actor to play Eponine and her younger self. More recently, Fletcher has played Veronica Sawyer in Heathers at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family.
Matt Lucas will reprise his performance as Thénardier, making his debut performance in the role at the 25th-anniversary concert at the O2 Arena. He later played the role in the West End production in 2011. Katy Secombe joins Lucas once again as Madame Thénardier, who last played the role in 2016.

Based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a convict who is released on parole after serving 19 years in a chain gang under Inspector Javert. Yet, spending so much time in the hands of the law has affected Valjean’s outlook on life, leaving him unable to break free from his past and stealing from a bishop.
At the same time in history, audiences meet Fantine, a young woman who has turned to prostitution in order to raise funds for her daughter Cosette. When Valjean and Fantine cross paths, he takes it upon himself to take a paternal role in Cosette’s upbringing.
With Cosette under Valjean’s wing, the pair travel through France and start to build a new life. While Cosette lives a sheltered life until she meets a handsome student Marius, but with student unrest across the country, the pair are not able to stay together easily.
Caught up in the action, Javert seeks to track Valjean down, but the rallying cries on the barricade speak loudly in a story that champions life, liberty and freedom.
