Further casting has been revealed for the all-star Les Misérables concert, which runs at the Gielgud Theatre later this year.

Joining the previously announced Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, John Owen-Jones, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Katy Secombe and Matt Lucas will be Bradley Jaden and Rob Houchen, both of whom have previously appeared in the musical.

The production, which will run in the Gielgud while the Les Misérables customary home at the Queen's Theatre is renovated, will run from 10 August 2019 for 16 weeks until 30 November. Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's musical, adapted from the novel by Victor Hugo, will return to the Queen's Theatre in December 2019, where the newer 2009 staging of the production will be performed.

Houchen will take on the role of Marius and was recently seen in Eugenius! at The Other Palace, where he was nominated for a WhatsOnStage Award. Jaden, who is currently playing Javert in the West End production of Les Misérables, has previously appeared in Wicked and returns to the role of Enjolras, having played the part in the 30th anniversary cast.

The current production at the Queen's Theatre will close on 13 July 2019, with tickets on sale now.
