Following weeks of anticipation, general sale tickets for Cameron Mackintosh’s highly-acclaimed Broadway production of the Boublil and Schönberg musical Les Misérables, will be available to book from Tuesday 5th June 2018, ahead of the show’s run at the Palace Theatre Manchester from 19 February – 30 March 2019.
Bookings can be made by telephone, online or in person at the Palace Theatre Box Office, which will be opening early for the event at 10am. Tickets for the musical are set to be sought-after, with the exciting announcement last month that the West End’s current Jean Valjean Killian Donnelly will be playing the role in the show’s UK tour.
Prior to his run in Les Misérables, he played the role of Charlie Price in Kinky Boots on Broadway, a role he originated at the Adelphi Theatre in the West End in 2015, for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award.
