Les Misérables: The Staged Concert is a 2019 British live stage recording of the 1980 musical Les Misérables, itself an adaptation of Victor Hugo's 1862 novel, filmed at the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End on 2 December 2019, and broadcast live to UK and Irish cinemas. Starring Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas, it was the final performance of the stage production Les Misérables: The All-Star Staged Concert, which ran for four months from 10 August.

Background

It was announced in January 2019 that the original production of Les Misérables would close in July 2019 and move to the adjacent Gielgud Theatre for four months to allow for the Queen's Theatre (as it was then called) to be refurbished and reopen in December 2019 with a new updated production.[1] The move would allow the show to continue its record breaking run.[2] The following month, it was announced that the Gielgud production would take the form of an all star-staged concert and run for 16 weeks between 10 August and 30 November.[3]

The Staged Concert

Due to the success of the production, producer Cameron Mackintosh announced that an extra performance had been added on 2 December 2019 which would be broadcast live to cinemas across the UK, Republic of Ireland and the United States.[4] A subsequent change meant that the concert was not broadcast live in North America, with the date pushed back to 8 December.[5]

The stage concert was due to returned to the Sondheim Theatre for a limited run from 5 December 2020, this was extended and due to play until 28 February 2021.[6] However the show closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic on 15 December after just 10 performances.
