John Owen-Jones Becomes Next 'Jean Valjean' in LES MISERABLES This Evening
The Broadway revival of Claude-Michel Schönberg & Alain Boublil's beloved musical Les Miserables welcomes a new 'Jean Valjean' - John Owen-Jones - tonight, March 1, as Alfie Boe, the internationally-acclaimed tenor (and star of the London LES MIZ 25th Anniversary concert), departs for Broadway's FINDING NEVERLAND.
Perhaps best known for his record-breaking turn in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (Owen-Jones is the longest running West End Phantom with almost 2000 performances under his belt), he was a part of the closing cast of the previous Les Miserables revival.
The current Broadway cast also features Hayden Tee as Javert, Alison Luff as Fantine, Tony Award and Olivier Award nominee Gavin Lee as Thenardier, Rachel Izen as Madame Thenardier, Brennyn Lark as Eponine, Chris McCarrell as Marius, Alex Finke as Cosette and Wallace Smith as Enjolras.
The Broadway production of Les Miserables, currently the only production of the musical performing in North America, will end its acclaimed run on Sept. 4.
