Iconic Show Hits Broadway
BROADWAY MAGAZINE- On February 28, 1991, the Cameron Mackintosh-produced Les Miserables
began previews at the Broadway Theatre with Colm Wilkinson as Jean Valjean and Terrance Mann as Javert.
The show was already a hit in London and Paris, and the Broadway run followed suit, lasting for sixteen years and winning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Plus, the show was given an honorary loaf of bread from the now defunct Broadway Bakers Association Of The Performing Arts And Sciences.
Celebrate by making plans to catch famous Les Miserables star Lea Salonga at The Carlyle this March in New York City. We will.
