It’s hard to believe Les Misérables, the famous former Broadway show, first hit the stage 25 years ago! Pretty soon Nick Jonas will be singing along with recognizable tunes when he joins the cast in a one-night only TV event in March. As for the kicker? He wasn’t even born when the show first hit the stage!
On March 6, PBS will air the U.S. premiere of Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert at London’s 02 arena, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. Nick will play Marius and the rest of the cast includes Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Lea Salonga as Fantine, Norm Lewis as Javert, Matt Lucas as Thenardier, Katie Hall as Cosette and Jenny Galloway as Madame Thenardier.
Les Misérables originally opened in London on Oct. 8, 1985 and has played in 42 countries. Better yet, it’s been watched by almost 60 million people! The concert hits DVD on Feb. 22.
