NEWS: Les Mis to return to Birmingham for SECOND run in 2020

Following unprecedented demand, Sir Cameron Mackintosh has announced that his acclaimed production of Les Misérables will return to Birmingham Hippodrome from Tuesday 30th June to Saturday 18th July 2020.

The production opened its near sell-out run at the theatre yesterday, where it will play until Saturday 11th May. Originally touring the UK throughout 2009/10, and concluding with 22 performances at the Barbican, this production was hailed by audiences and critics alike. The current tour opened in Leicester in November last year and has already played sell out runs in Dublin, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Inspired by the hugely successful movie version starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne, this brilliant new staging features scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo.

Les Misérables has been a global success story having being seen across the globe by over 120 million people worldwide, in 52 countries and in 22 languages, making it undisputedly one of the world’s most popular musicals. Fiona Allan, Birmingham Hippodrome Artistic Director and Chief Executive said:

“A show of the phenomenal appeal of Les Misérables comes along only a few times in your life:  its enduring popularity and beloved status with audiences is incomparable. So much so, we are planning to bring it back to Birmingham again in 2020.

"For those who missed out on tickets this year - or those who want to see it again - this is another opportunity to catch the world’s favourite musical. My advice - Book early!”

Birmingham Hippodrome Friends and Patrons scheme members will enjoy priority booking from 11am on Friday 5th April 2019. Groups are on sale at 11am on Monday 8th April and tickets will be on general on sale from 11am on Friday 12th April 2019.
