Les Mis on the Move???
Date: 17 November 2003
According to the Daily Mail, the West End's longest running musical, Les Miserables, will up sticks in the new year. After 18 years at the 1,400-seat Palace Theatre, it will move a few doors down Shaftesbury Avenue to the more intimate, 990-seat Queen's Theatre in late March or early April 2004, says the newspaper. After checking with numerous sources, Whatsontage.com also ran a similar News story last week, but was later contacted by impresario Cameron Mackintosh's offices, who insists arrangements have not yet been finalised. As soon as we get official confirmation of the move, we'll let you know! At the moment, Les Mis is taking bookings at the Palace up to 28 February 2004. Another musical based on a 19th-century novel, Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White, has been tipped for the Palace in September 2004 (See The Goss, 15 Sep 2003), before which, time may be devoted to building refurbishment.
