Carrie Hope Fletcher returns to Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre as Eponine on 17 June, 12 years after playing the young version of the same character.
The casting marks Fletcher’s adult West End debut. Her previous credits include Jemima Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium, Jane Banks in Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward Theatre and Young Eponine in Les Mis in its former West End home, the Palace Theatre.
Adapted from Victor Hugo’s famous novel and pushed further into the limelight after its reworking into a major feature film starring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables is now in its 28th year on the London stage.
Set against the backdrop of revolutionary France, its story of redemption and reformation follows falsely-accused convict Jean Valjean, who has broken his parole and is being relentlessly dogged by police officer Javert.
Boublil and Schonberg’s musical contains much-loved numbers including Bring Him Home, I Dreamed a Dream and On My Own.
