Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of the Tony Award-winning mega-musical masterpiece Les Miserables will return to the Imperial Theatre, the show’s home on Broadway for nearly 13 years. Preview performances of Les Miserables will begin March 1, 2014, with an official opening night set for March 23. Casting for the new production will be announced later this summer.
“I feel really blessed that not only has my new production of Les Miserables been embraced by audiences and critics alike, even more fervently than the original, but Phil Smith and Bob Wankel of The Shubert Organization have kindly arranged for me to bring Cosette back to her spiritual home on Broadway, the Imperial Theatre,” said Mackintosh in a statement. “This magnificent theater has the perfect blend of scale and intimacy for a story like Les Miserables, and I can’t wait to put together a brilliant company to bring this great musical to new generations of Broadway audiences.”
