Les Miserables In Concert
Matt Lucas presents a selection of musical renditions from the spectacular performance of Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concertbles in concert.
Matt Lucas presents a spectacular staging of the legendary Les Misérables concert, which took place at the intimate Gielgud Theatre next door to the current home of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre.
The large cast and more than 65-member strong orchestra of this production will be led by Michael Ball playing Javert, Alfie Boe as his nemesis Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher bringing Fantine to life on the stage and Matt Lucas portraying Thénardier. They will be joined by Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier and for three performances a week, the role of Jean Valjean will be played by John Owen-Jones.
Michael Ball returns to this show more than 30 years after originating the role of Marius Pontmercy in the world premiere of Les Miserables. Ball returns to sing Javert after his performance at The 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables in which he sung the same role, and on which the limited run production is based. Longtime friend of Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, has been internationally lauded for his performances as Jean Valjean.
Carrie Hope Fletcher joins the cast hot off the staggering success of her portrayal of Veronica in Heathers The Musical which played at both The Other Palace and the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Matt Lucas, perhaps best known for his roles in televisions series like Little Britain and Doctor Who, is also no stranger to Les Miserables. He sang the role of Thénardier at the 25th-anniversary concerts and went on to do a short run playing the character at the Queen's Theatre. He now returns to the role for the Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concert at London's Gielgud Theatre.
