Celebrate the ‘Les Miserables’ 25th Anniversary

Celebrate the legendary musical with a stellar cast including Alfie Boe, Nick Jonas, Lea Salonga, Colm Wilkinson, Norm Lewis and Ramin Karimloo. Staged by producer Cameron Mackintosh, the concert was filmed at London’s O2 Arena. “Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert” airs on Arizona PBS on Saturday, June 6 at 7 p.m.

No one could have guessed on October 8, 1985, when “Les Misérables” opened in London at the Barbican Theatre that it would become a worldwide phenomenon, but audiences embraced it from the start, creating a “people’s musical” that has played in 42 countries and has been seen by nearly 60 million people. In 2010, the legendary musical celebrated its 25th birthday, and to mark the occasion, producer Cameron Mackintosh staged an extraordinary concert at the O2 Arena in London.
