For every digital download, at £9.99, The Mackintosh Foundation will separately donate £5.00 to be shared amongst the charity Acting for Others, the Musicians Union Coronavirus Hardship Fund and Captain Tom Moore's Walk for the NHS fund.
Until lockdowns began, the new West End production was running at the Sondheim Theatre, starring Jon Robyns, Rachelle Ann Go, Jaden, Ako, and Kerhoas. The show is penned by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and is based on the novel by Victor Hugo. It has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer and original French text by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel with additional material by James Fenton and adaptation by Trevor Nunn and John Caird.
Mackintosh has also launched the fundraising today by donating £100,000 from his Foundation.
