Directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell, the production of Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil’s musical began in 2009 as a 25th anniversary staging in the U.K. before playing myriad locations around the world and touring the U.S. Following a two-year tour and a five-month engagement in Toronto, the production opened in March 2014 at Broadway’s Imperial Theatre, where it ran for over 1,000 performances.
The production features set design—inspired by author Victor Hugo’s paintings—by Matt Kinley, costumes by Andreane Neofitou and Christine Rowland, lighting design by Paule Constable, sound design by Mick Potter, and projections by Fifty-Nine Productions. Casting is by Kaitlin Shaw of Tara Rubin Casting.
