Les Misérables is returning to its New York home 11 years after its historic Broadway run. In March 2014, a revised production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical will debut at New York’s Imperial Theatre, the same stage where the original show ran for 13 years until 2003. (A short-lived revival ran for 14 months at the Broadhurst Theatre beginning in November 2006.) “This magnificent theater has the perfect blend of scale and intimacy for a story like Les Misérables, and I can’t wait to put together a brilliant company to bring this great musical to new generations of Broadway audiences,” said producer Cameron Mackintosh, in a statement.

The original Les Misérables debuted at London’s Barbican Theatre in 1985, and it continues to play in the West End, making it the world’s longest-running musical.

Casting for the new American production will be announced later this summer, but Laurence Connor and James Powell, who co-directed the version of the show that is currently touring North America, will helm the Broadway show as well. Previews will begin March 1 with opening night scheduled for March 23.
