About the Show

The Broadway revival of Les Miserables has announced an extension "at least through the summer of 2007," according to a statement from producer Cameron Mackintosh. The production had originally been scheduled to play through April 22 at the Broadhurst Theatre.

In his statement, Mackintosh said, "I am delighted that audiences have welcomed Les Miz back to Broadway with such open arms. Because of even stronger than anticipated ticket sales, clearly public demand exists for the show to continue at the Broadhurst beyond the originally planned six-month engagement.

The new cast of Les Miserables includes Alexander Gemignani Valjean, Norm Lewis Javert, Gary Beach Thenardier, Daphne Rubin-Vega Fantine, Jenny Galloway Madame Thenardier, Celia Keenan-Bolger Eponine, Aaron Lazar Enjolras, Adam Jacobs Marius and Ali Ewoldt Cosette. As previously announced, Rubin-Vega will take a leave of absence from the show February 18-April 11, 2007, to star in the LAByrinth Theater Company's off-Broadway production of Jack Goes Boating. Her replacement will be announced after January 1.

Les Miserables is the third longest-running show in Broadway history and became the longest running musical ever in London's West End on October 8 . The original Broadway production opened on March 12, 1987, at the Broadway Theatre, winning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show went on to play a total of 6,680 performances.
