For two nights only, the West End is coming to the big screen, bringing the current sold-out production of Cameron Mackintosh's Les Miserables - The Staged Concert to cinemas nationwide exclusively on December 8th & 11th. Starring Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher, and Matt Lucas, the live staged concert has sold out its entire 16 show run in the UK, drawing lines of up to 20,000 at the box office, for fans to catch this very special limited engagement, and now American audiences can experience all of the magic at their local movie theater.  The event is being distributed by Trafalgar Releasing.

This elaborate production of the songs from the beloved musical has run from August through November 30th at the Gielgud Theatre in London and now comes to cinema screens. Leading an outstanding cast and orchestra of over 65 are Michael Ball (Javert), Alfie Boe (Jean Valjean), Carrie Hope Fletcher (Fantine) and Matt Lucas (Thénardier), who perform the songs I Dreamed A Dream, Bring Him Home, One Day More, On My Own and many more. 

The London event was widely praised by critics, with Baz Bamigboye from The Daily Mail saying, “Les Miz rocks to the rafters — generating megawatts of electricity. This is also one of the most intimate and tremendously moving Les Miz experiences I’ve ever had.” Gaby Roslin from BBC Radio London added, “I loved it, what a night! It was wonderful, beautifully staged and works so beautifully as a concert. It was truly superb and actually breathed new life into a show I know so well and love and have seen many times.”

Seen by over 120 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is undeniably one of the world’s most popular musicals and has spawned more than a dozen cinematic versions and several television adaptations including last year’s presentation on PBS in America which featured Dominic West, David Oyelowo, Lily Collins and Ellie Bamber.

Discussing the reaction to the concert event, producer Cameron Mackintosh states, The extraordinary sell-out success and response to our spectacular new theatrical concert staging of Les Misérables has been phenomenal so we are thrilled to give cinema audiences around North America the opportunity to experience this stunning production. Our 16 week limited season at the Gielgud sold out in a few days but now you can storm the barricades to ensure you catch this thrilling performance direct from the West End in a cinema near you. For the masses of disappointed fans who couldn't get to see this amazing concert in London the cinema event will be a unique shared experience of thrilling drama, glorious music and sensational singing performed by an amazing all-star cast and orchestra of over 65 - the like of which you will have never seen before. If you have ever Dreamed a Dream - this is it!”
