Is Les Miserables returning to Broadway? Looks like it might. Tom Hooper’s reimagining of Les Miserables has seemed to spark a really passionate interest from fans old and new. Now fans will be able to catch it on the Broadway stage once again.
According to Broadway.com, the Tony Award-winning musical is set to open on Broadway once again in March 2014. Although a theater hasn’t been picked out yet, casting is said to be underway. The show is said to be a “newly re-imagined” show based on the U.S. national tour, which launched back in November of 2010. Since its launch Les Miserables has been performed in 64 cities in North America, with performances slated in Japan, Canada, Australia, and Brazil.
It looks like the motion picture has really driven the audience’s interest for Les Miserables that much further, which will probably see a huge spike in seats once it hits the Broadway stage in 2014. Perhaps Anne Hathaway, who played Fantine in the film, and is currently a favorite to win the Oscar for Best Supporting, will take to the stage? Only time will tell.
For those new fans of Les Miserables this will very well be the first time that they’re seeing a live adaptation of the play. That is, if you don’t count all of that live singing the cast of the motion picture partook in.
