Already used to big stage shows, Les Misérables is expanding again, with a new series of shows in even larger arenas.

Already booked to perform in over 15 countries, including here in London, the World Tour will begin as the stage musical enters its 39th year and will run throughout the upcoming 40th anniversary celebrations for the world’s longest running musical in 2025.

It’s come a long way from its premiere in London’s Barbican.

Les Misérables The Arena Spectactular will be expanded from the successful Les Misérables The Staged Concert which played for over 200 record-breaking performances in the West End. It will have an new design specifically created for arenas (and large theatres) with audiences of between 3,000 – 5,000. This spectacular production will have a UK company of over 110 actors, musicians and crew featuring a core cast with a number of Les Mis guest stars appearing as their schedules allow.

Exact dates, cities, venues, casting and sale details will begin to be revealed this Autumn.

Cameron Mackintosh said, “Since the very first concert performance of Les Misérables in Sydney in January 1989, this remarkable musical has proved to be as powerful and successful in its every manifestation. Whether in its original full theatrical form, a blockbuster musical movie, or any of its numerous spectacularly staged concert performances. Over the show’s nearly 40 years existence, it has also proved to be the launch pad for an extraordinary list of stars around the world, in many different languages and countries. This much anticipated world tour will be a unique opportunity for many of these celebrated performers to play their favourite roles for short periods in different parts of the world, so fans will get the chance to see their favourite stars (and mine!) in their favourite musical. Both the show and the score of Les Mis continues to win poll after poll around the world as the publics favourite musical of all time containing so many of the most memorable and beloved songs ever written for the musical theatre. The euphoria of the cast reunion performances of Miz are legendary and always prove a sell-out so I look forward to this unique event being the ultimate demonstration of Do You Hear The People Sing ever!”

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
