The production is currently touring the U.K. and Ireland and will soon embark on a tour of The Netherlands with further productions to be announced. The North American tour ran from 2017 to March 2020 before being halted due to the global pandemic.
"The phenomenon of Les Misérables never fails to astound me," said producer Cameron Mackintosh in an earlier statement. "No show in history has been able to continually reinvent itself and remain a contemporary musical attracting new generations of brilliant new talent, many of whom go on to international stardom. No show in the world has ever demonstrated the survival of the human spirit better than Les Miz, and it's time to let the people sing again. We are all thrilled to be Bringing Her Home to you."
