Casting: Les Miserables

Here’s yet one reason more for audiences to see Les Misérables

From 12 June 2017, Killian Donnelly and Carley Stenson will join the cast as Jean Valjean and Fantine, while Hayden Tee returns as Javert from 17 July. Such news will ensure there won’t be any empty chairs, not that that’s an issue; the current production still plays to standing room only!

Donnelly returns to the London stage fresh from Broadway, where he has been playing the lead role of Charlie Price in Kinky Boots, the role he originated at the Adelphi Theatre in the West End in 2015. His other West End theatre credits include Huey in Memphis and Deco in The Commitments, a role which he again created. Stenson’s credits include Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical and Lady of the Lake in Spamalot. Tee returns to the West End production, having previously played the role of Javert both here, on Broadway and in Dubai.


Also joining the company are Steven Meo as Thénardier; Karis Jack as Eponine, Jacqueline Tate as Madame Thénardier and Hyoie O’Grady as Enjolras. Paul Wilkins will continue in the role of Marius and Charlotte Kennedy will continue in the role of Cosette, having both originally joined the company in 2015.
