‘Les Misérables’ in concert arrives at the cinema
And for once, life didn’t kill the dream I was dreaming of. Yes, that’s right, my miserable comrades, the last staged concert of Wretched arrives in US theaters for two days in December.
Special limited-time movie events happen more often these days (the last one I went to was the phenomenal Star Trek DS9 documentary), and they can be especially entertaining as the brief engagement and often hyper-specific subject matter mean the theater is filled with dedicated fans. Now a The set The filmed concert will be in theaters on Sunday 8 and Wednesday 11 December 2019.
Tickets are on sale now for Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular sold-out concert version of the legendary Boublil & Schönberg musical Les Misérables – The Staged Concert, which hits theaters in the US on Sunday December 8 and Wednesday December 11 at Gielgud London Theater.
Seen by over 120 million people around the world, Les Misérables is unquestionably one of the most popular musicals in the world – and now Les Misérables – The Staged Concert is the must-attend event for all fans of musical theater and music. event cinema. Tickets for US theaters will be available from Friday, November 15.
Michael Ball (Javert), Alfie Boe (Jean Valjean), Carrie Hope Fletcher (Fantine) and Matt Lucas (Thénardier) lead an exceptional 65-year-old cast and orchestra, who perform the songs I Dreamed A Dream, Bring Him Home , One Day More, On My Own and many more. This sensational cinematic event is not to be missed.
The staged concert also features Rob Houchen as Marius, Lily Kerhoas as Cosette, Shan Ako as Eponine and Logan Clark as Gavroche.
This concert version of The set differs from previous concerts, which tended to be organized as “birthday” parties featuring favorites from West End and Broadway shows. My favorite recording is the 10th anniversary concert; the 25th is also awesome in every way except the failed casting of a brother Jonas (I mean Rick ?? OK Wikipedia tells me it’s “Nick”) as Marius. The upcoming concert filmed in US theaters is not an anniversary show but rather a special theatrical concert production that took place in London from August to November of this year. Those of us who couldn’t make it to London now have a chance to watch without the Jonas Brothers in sight.
I saw Wretched so many times on stage and on screen that we could argue I really don’t need it anymore Wretched, but la la la, I can’t hear you because of the sound of trying to sing “The Confrontation” to yourself. Staged concerts can also appeal to people who like The set but think the musical is too long or enjoy a simplified version without having to watch carts fall on people or be traumatized again when Gavroche is shot. I was hoping that somehow I could see this live in London, but the movie event is the second best thing.
I have never seen a The set gig on the big screen, and there’s a good chance I like it even more than the movie version of Tom Hooper. The odds are really very good.
You can get tickets for the concert staged at SeatPlan.
