Nick Jonas to Make West End Debut
–Nick Jonas is going back to his musical theater roots.
According to the Daily Mail UK, Nick is preparing for his West End theatre debut, playing the role of Marius in Les Miserables. The show will be at the Queen’s Theatre for a three week run from June 21.
Nick is no stranger to Les Miserables. He played the part of Gavroche in the last nine months of Les Miserables’ run on Broadway in 2003.
Nick has been rehearsing the music in the U.S. but will begin three weeks of full rehearsals with other new special cast members in London in the next few days before giving his first performance at the Queen’s.
In October, Nick will be part of a huge, star-studded company being assembled to perform a 25th anniversary concert at the O2 Centre in Greenwich, South-East London. Details of casting – and ticket information about the O2 production – will be announced on Wednesday morning.
Update: Nick just tweeted: I am so excited to announce that I will be performing in Les Miserables once again! The amazing Cameron Macintosh reached out to me last year about portraying the role of Marius in London at the West End. When I was ten years old I was in Les Miserables as Gavroche. On my closing night in 2003 I told my parents that I would come back to be Marius one day. It is truly a dream come true. More details will be coming soon. Can’t wait to see the fans who make it out to the show! Love you all. Special thanks to Cameron for this amazing opportunity. “I Dreamed a Dream” and they seem to be coming true.
P.S. To all of you who figured out the riddle… Well done.
