LES MISERABLES 25th Anniversary Concert Airs on THIRTEEN Tonight

New York's flagship public media station THIRTEEN will air a special re-broadcast of the famed London Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert this evening, June 14 beginning at 7 pm.

The concert, which CELEBRATED the original London production's 25th Anniversary, took place on October 3, 2010 at the O2 Arena and starred Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean. Boe will reprise his legendary performance beginning September 1 in Cameron Mackintosh's acclaimed new Broadway revival of Les Miserables at the Imperial Theatre. The concert will also be broadcast on WLIW21 on Long Island Monday, June 15 at 7 pm and Saturday, June 20 on NJTV at 7 pm.

Boe is beloved by millions of Les Miz fans for his towering performance in the concert, which instantly turned him into a star. The Evening Standard proclaimed, "Alfie Boe is a stunning Valjean." The legendary concert was subsequently released on DVD and Blu-Ray, selling millions of copies worldwide. The concert also stars Broadway favorites Norm Lewis as Javert, Lea Salonga as Fantine, Ramin Karimloo as Enjolras and Nick Jonas as Marius. Samantha Barks, who co-starred in the film version of Les Miserables plays Eponine, Katie Hall as Cosette and Matt Lucas and Jenny Galloway as the Thenardiers. Earl Carpenter, currently starring as Javert on Broadway, performs the role of the Bishop of Digne. The concert's encore features Boe and three Valjean alumni: Colm Wilkinson, Simon Bowman and John Owen-Jones.

Said Cameron Mackintosh, "I first had the idea of asking Alfie Boe to play Valjean watching him in a production of Kismet at the English National Opera in which he was co-starring with my great friend, Michael Ball, the original Marius. It turned out to be one of the great decisions of my life, and I will never forget what happened at the O2 Les Miz 25th Anniversary concert when an unknown operatic tenor transfixed not only the 32,000 people who watched live in the arena, but also the hundreds of thousands watching live in cinemas around the world. A star was truly born that night and true musical theater magic happened."

The current cast of Les Miserables on Broadway features Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo as Jean Valjean (through Sunday, August 30) acclaimed British actor Earl Carpenter as Javert, Tony Award and Olivier Award nominee Gavin Lee as Thenardier, Erika Henningsen as Fantine, Samantha Hill as Cosette, Rachel Izen as Madame Thenardier, Brennyn Lark as Eponine, Chris McCarrell as Marius and Wallace Smith as Enjolras.
