Latest on the 25th Anniversary- please post information onlyPlease can people in the know post here the latest and most up to date information about what's happening re the 25th Anniversary: what is happening where when etc?
The thread for this subject is now more a discussion now [which is fine] but anyone looking for information wont be able to find it easily [I tried].
I particularly want to know what is happening at the Barbican, the O2 and of course on Friday 8th October itself please. Any ideas? Have I missed anything important?
I request that this thread be kept to information, as much as is humanly possible, for quick reference for people looking for details not discussion.
Thanks everyone and Hi.
3rd October, O2 Arena London, matinee and evening performances.
Cast includes: Alfie Boe (Valjean), Norm Lewis (Javert), Lea Salonga (Fantine), Matt Lucas (Thenardier), Jenny Galloway (Mme Thenardier), Nick Jonas (Marius), Camilla Kerslake (Cosette), Samantha Barks (Eponine). Enjolras to be announced. The current tour cast and West End cast will be involved in some way, along with members of the original London cast.
The 25th Anniversary production is playing 22 shows at the Barbican from 14th September to the 2nd October. There's been talk of one of there being two shows - at, I believe 10.30 and 2.30 - one of which is the tour and one the original production. Not sure if this is true/confirmed, it seems an awful lot of effort to me.
No idea if anything special is happening. Tickets are on sale for evening performance as normal at the Queen's.
Both the Queen's and the Barbican are doing shows at 10.30 and 2.30 with the 10.30 one replacing the evening show as both casts are rehearsing for the concert in the evening (as far as I understand). There are packages on sale for the 3 shows - Queens/Barbican/O2
According to the offical website there is no show at the Queens on Friday 1st but other websites are selling tickets so not sure what is going on there

From an interview with Frances Ruffelle:
"And I will be part of the 25th anniversary. The original cast have been invited to do something at a concert at the O2."
