Who is playing Jean Valjean in the West End CURRENTLY? Broadway.com says it's Drew Sarich (aka God), but the Les Mis website says it is someone else....any one seen it recently who knows?

Last I checked the London Les Miserables site. It still said that Jones was in Les Miserables. Despite the fact that he had been finnished with his Broadway stit for a bit of time.


I think that it would still be Sarich because his six month stint would still be going on.

Drew's original six month stint has been extended to June 21st. But he'll be taking some time off this month to star (actually Superstar) in the Jesus Christ Superstar concert in Vienna.

I'd like to say from the horse's mouth when I saw the show in January, but the extension was arranged in February. I read about it in The Drew Sarich Board last week.

I am really glad that Drew's run has been extended. I had seen the show pre-Drew and found it tired, needing a breath of fresh air. Seeing it with Drew.... wow, what a difference! Congrats to Drew!
