The longest running musical of all time, Les Misérables, will sweep U.S. audiences off their feet in a special one-night, in-theater event on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. local time and can be seen in Tulsa, Cinemark Tulsa & (10802 East 71st Street) and Broken Arrow, Cinemark Broken Arrow (1801 East Hillside Drive).

Les Misérables in Concert – The 25th Anniversary Event features more than 500 actors and musicians including Alfie Boe as ‘Jean Valjean,’ Nick Jonas as ‘Marius,’ Norm Lewis as ‘Javert,’ Matt Lucas as ‘Thénardier,’ Lea Salonga as ‘Fantine,’ Jenny Galloway as ‘Madame Thénardier,’ and Katie Hall as ‘Cosette.’ Les Misérables has been seen by nearly 60 million people worldwide in 42 countries and 21 languages and is the third longest running show on Broadway after The Phantom of the Opera and Cats.

“The Les Misérables 25th Anniversary concert was an extraordinary experience for everyone at The O2, so it was thrilling to hear that the response in cinemas was just as emotional, where audiences clapped, cheered, cried and stood, just as if they were at the live event. Now that the concert will be screened to nearly 500 U.S. cinemas, this great theatrical event can now have an even greater worldwide audience,” said Mr. Mackintosh.

First produced in 1985 at London’s Barbican Centre and based on the novel by Victor Hugo, the musical Les Misérables follows the characters as they struggle for redemption and revolution in early nineteenth-century France. In 1987, it was nominated for 12 and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
