Patrice Tipoki, Earl Carpenter & Simon Gleeson to star in Les Miserables in Singapore

It has been announced that Les Miserables will open at Singapore’s Esplanade Theatre in May 2016. The show recently ran in Melbourne and Perth and is currently playing in Sydney.

Playing the iconic role of ‘Jean Valjean’ is Simon Gleeson following his recent and prestigious Australian Helpmann Award win for the role. Direct from Broadway, Javert’ will be played by Earl Carpenter.

Joining them will be musical theatre stars Patrice Tipoki as ‘Fantine’, Kerrie Anne Greenland as ‘Eponine’, Chris Durling as ‘Enjolras’ and Emily Langridge as ‘Cosette’ who come directly from performing the show in Sydney.

Cameron Mackintosh said: "Next year will mark twenty years since Les Miserables was last in Singapore, and I am excited to now be bringing the new production to the Esplanade, which has proved just as successful all over the world as the original production that has just celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in London – the only place in the world where you can still see the original production.

"Having created my new production over five years ago to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Les Miserables, it is now in its second year on Broadway, and broken box office records across America and in Canada for over three years, with separate companies in Japan, Korea, Spain and of course Australia, where it is sweeping all the top awards. I am delighted to bring this hugely successful new production to Singapore with this incredible cast.”
