West End To Welcome Another Dutch Fantine, Na-Young Jeon

West End To Welcome Another Dutch Fantine, Na-Young Jeon

After Celinde Schoenmaker, who currently plays the role of Fantine in West End's LES MISERABLES, another Dutch musical actress has been cast for this role: Na-Young Jeon has cancelled her upcoming stint as Maria in a production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR to star in the West End hit musical.

Jeon caught the national spotlight as Kim in the Dutch 2012 revival of MISS SAIGON. The revival featured a brand new song ("Toch nog"/"Maybe") replacing "Now That I've Seen Her", which in turn replaced "Her or Me". In 2009, Na-Young Jeon won a Musical Award for her role in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL, in the "up-and-coming talent" category.

Schoenmaker is set to leave LES MISERABLES on June 15th, moving on to play a Dutch version of LOVE STORY. It's unclear when Jeon will have her opening night.

The production of Jesus Christ Superstar, originally starring Jeon, is to play an old hangar in an industrial part of the city of Rotterdam. Its director, Daniël Cohen said the production was sad but also proud to see Jeon go.
