With glorious new staging and dazzlingly reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, this breathtaking production of Les Misérables broke box office records during its pre-Broadway tour.
“I‘m delighted that after a four year absence this glorious production is once again touring the major cities across North America and is more spectacular than ever,” Mackintosh said.
Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Featuring one of the greatest scores of all time, with thrilling and beloved songs including “I Dreamed A Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars," “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More,” “Do You Hear the People Sing,” and many more, this epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history.

Les Misérables is still the world’s most popular musical, breaking box office records everywhere in its 32nd year.
