Les Miserables West End cast for December 2019 grand reopening
Casting has been announced for the new production of Les Miserables (which, for purposes of maintaining the theatre record for Longest Theatrical Run of a Musical, still remains the same production as confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records in February 2019).
Set to headline Les Mis at London's Sondheim Theatre this holiday season are Ashley Gilmour as Enjolras, Bradley Jaden as Javert, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine, Gerard Carey as Thenardier, Jon Robyns as Jean Valjean, Josefina Gabrielle as Madame Thénardier, Lily Kerhoas as Cosette, and Shan Ako as Eponine.
Carrie Hope Fletcher and Rachelle Ann Go to alternate as Fantine
Fletcher will portray the role of Fantine from 18 December 2019 until 29 February 2020 before taking a short hiatus. She will then return to play Fantine from 20 April until 25 July 2020. Rachelle Ann Go (currently appearing as Eliza in the Victoria Palace Theatre production of Hamilton) will fill in the gap as Fantine from 2 March until 18 April 2020 before taking over the role again from 27 July 2020. Rachelle Ann Go previously portrayed Fantine in Les Mis back in 2015 in the West End and in 2016 in Manila for the Philippines leg of the Asian tour.
