Les Misérables is staging an All Star concert for 2019 – from last minute tickets to the cast, here’s all you need to know.
Les Misérables has been playing for 34 years in the West End but will take a short break this summer.
The current home of the award winning musical – the Queen’s Theatre – is being refurbished. Les Mis temporarily closed on 13 July 2019 before re-opening in December 2019 at the restored, newly named Sondheim theatre.
While work on the Queen’s theatre is underway, the musical will continue to play with a special staged concert version at the Gielgud Theatre.
The 2019 Les Mis concert in London is based on the legendary 10th anniversary concert at The Royal Albert Hall and the O2 Arena’s 25th anniversary concert.
Les Misérables Concert Tickets
The 2019 Les Mis London concert is booking a strictly limited run from 12 August 2019 to 25 November 2019.
Given its limited season and all star cast, tickets have been selling out quickly and haven’t been cheap.
As of writing, a handful of last minute premium seats are currently available on a few performances while some cheaper last minute tickets are still available for a new 1:30PM matinee performance on Saturday, September 14.
