May 2011: Les Misérables – New Company at the Queen’s Theatre

There will be a new company at the Queen’s Theatre from 23 June with Alfie Boe taking over from Simon Bowman as Jean Valjean (until 26 November 2011), Hadley Fraser taking over from Norm Lewis as Javert and Matt Lucas taking over from Martin Ball as Thénardier (until 10 September 2011). Other new cast members are: Caroline Sheen as Fantine, Alexia Khadime as Eponine, Craig Mather as Marius, Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier, Liam Tamne as Enjolras and Lisa-Anne Wood as Cosette. The show will close for three days from the 19 to 23 June to facilitate the installation of a brand new state of the art surround sound system and the building of a bigger pit to accommodate the slightly larger orchestra necessary to play the new 25th Anniversary Tour orchestrations.
