'Les Miserables' Leaves New York

20 May 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The foothold of British musicals on Broadway is loosening with the closure of Les Miserables after a 16-year-run on Sunday. The Cameron Mackintosh-produced musical finished after 6,680 performances and now leaves Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom Of The Opera as the only remaining 1980's British musical in New York. However, the last night was a celebratory one, with an invite-only audience of previous cast members, creatives, friends and relatives joined together to commemorate the success of the long-running French revolution show. The performance on the night also took longer than usual as audience members interrupted the run regularly to clap and cheer. Mackintosh took to the stage after the show with authors Alain Boublil and Claude-michel Schonberg and co-directors Trevor Nunn and John Caird. Mackintosh said, "Time for au revoir," and thanked "all the great, fantastic casts we've had before." Les Miz was based on Victor Hugo's novel, and opened in New York on March 12, 1987. It won eight Tony awards and grossed $410 million in the city alone. »
