As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Andy Mientus, who currently plays 'Marius' in Les Miserables on Broadway, will soon make an appearance on the small screen as 'Pied Piper' in CW's THE FLASH. BroadwayWorld has confirmed that Mientus will be out of the show October 23 through November 18 to film the series. During that time, the role will be played by understudies Chris McCarrell (October 23-November 2) and Matt Rosell (November 4-18).
The cast of the new LES MIZ features Ramin Karimloo, 2014 Tony Award nominee as Best Actor in A Musical, as Jean Valjean; Will Swenson as Javert; Caissie Levy as Fantine; Nikki M. James as Eponine; Andy Mientus as Marius; Samantha Hill as Cosette; Cliff Saunders as Thenardier; Keala Settle as Madame Thenardier and Kyle Scatliffe as the revolutionary Enjolras.
This newly-reimagined production of LES MIZ opened on Broadway March 23 to critical acclaim. The Associated Press raved, "A glorious LES MIZ! This terrific new production is beautifully sung and acted." NY 1 said, "LES MIZ is born again. This is as close to perfection as we'll ever get in the theater." And The Huffington Post proclaimed, "This is a LES MIZ for the 21st century! It stirs the audience and rocks the rafters."
International productions of the new Les Miserables have met with equal success and acclaim in the U.K., France, Spain, Japan and Korea and Australia. This new version of Les Miserables, which premiered in the U.K. in 2009, inspired filmmakers to make the immensely successful Oscar/Golden Globe/BAFTA-winning movie.
Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel, Les Miserables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. The magnificent score includes the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Stars," "Bring Him Home," "Do You Hear the People Sing?," "One Day More," "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables," "Master Of The House" and many more.
