Les Misérables is coming to Hull

Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s musical Les Misérables is coming to Hull New Theatre next year.

Since Cameron Mackintosh first conceived this new production of Les Misérables in 2009 to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary, it has taken the world by storm.

Dean Chisnall will play ‘Jean Valjean’, Nic Greenshields ‘Javert’, Katie Hall ‘Fantine’, Ian Hughes ‘Thénardier’, Harry Apps ‘Marius’, Charlie Burn ‘Cosette’, Barnaby Hughes ‘Enjolras’ and Helen Walsh ‘Madame Thénardier’.

The production is inspired the hugely successful movie version starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne.

Boublil and Schönberg’s magnificent score of Les Misérables includes the songs, I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home, Do You Hear The People Sing?, One Day More, Empty Chairs at Empty Tables, Master Of The House and many more. Seen by over 120 million people worldwide in 52 countries and in 22 languages, Les Misérables is one of the world’s most popular musicals.
