Tickets for Cameron Mackintosh's production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, LES MISERABLES, are currently on sale for its triumphant return engagement at Philadelphia's Academy of Music, August 27 through September 8, 2024, welcomed jointly by Ensemble Arts Philly and The Shubert Organization. Ensemble Arts Philly is the new presenting brand of the Kimmel Cultural Campus.

"With its rich storytelling and soaring music, LES MISERABLES has captivated audiences worldwide for over two decades," said Frances Egler, Vice President, Theatrical Programming and Presentations. "Back by popular demand, this record-breaking show is appearing in Philadelphia for the 13th time, evidence of its phenomenon status."

Cameron Mackintosh said, "The phenomenon of LES MISERABLES never fails to astound me. No show in history has been able to continually reinvent itself and remain a contemporary musical attracting new generations of brilliant new talent, many of whom go on to international stardom. No show in the world has ever demonstrated the survival of the human spirit better than Les Miz, and it's time to let the people sing again. We are all thrilled to be Bringing Her Home to you."

Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, LES MISERABLES tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. This epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history.

They are joined by Matt Crowle as 'Thénardier,' Victoria Huston-Elem as 'Madame Thénardier,' Haley Dortch as 'Fantine,' Devin Archer as 'Enjolras,' Mya Rena Hunter as 'Éponine,' Jake David Smith as 'Marius' and Delaney Guyer as 'Cosette.' Azalea Wolfe and Ava Buesing alternate in the role of 'Little Cosette/Young Éponine.' Leo Caravano and Milo Maharlika alternate in the role of 'Gavroche.'

The current touring ensemble includes Kyle Adams, David Andino, Daniel Gerard Bittner, Jenna Burns, Ben Cherington, Steve Czarnecki, Kelsey Denae, Arianne DiCerbo, Genevieve Ellis, David Young Fernandez, Emily Fink, Randy Jeter, Andrew Love, Danny Martin, Mikako Martin, Eden Mau, Andrew Marks Maughan, Ashley Dawn Mortensen, Tim Quartier, Juliette Redden, Julia Ellen Richardson, Matt Rosell, Christopher Robin Sapp, Greta Schaefer, Emily Somé, Veronica Stern, Kaitlyn Sumner, Christopher James Tamayo, Kyle Timson, and J.T.

Boublil & Schönberg's magnificent score of LES MISERABLES includes the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Bring Him Home," "Do You Hear The People Sing?," "One Day More," "Master of the House," and many more. Seen by over 130 million people worldwide in 53 countries, 438 cities and 22 languages, LES MISERABLES is undisputedly still one of the world's most popular musicals and remains the 6th longest-running Broadway production of all time.
