Les Miserables will tour the UK and Ireland later this year for the first time in nearly a decade.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh has announced that the Broadway production of the Boublil and Schonberg musical will open at Curve in Leicester on November 3 before setting out on tour.

It will visit the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in Dublin, the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh and the Manchester Palace Theatre for three weeks in each location. Further dates will be announced.

Mackintosh described the production as “a Les Mis for the 21st century”, and said: “Since I first conceived the new production of Les Miserables to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary in 2009, this production has taken the world by the storm – more than matching the success of the original, which can now only be seen in London.”

The new staging has been seen in North and South America, Asia, Australia and Europe.
