The original Broadway production opened March 12, 1987, at the Broadway Theatre.
Les Misérables celebrates its Broadway anniversary March 12, 30 years after it opened at the Broadway Theatre in 1987 (it later transferred to the Imperial, where it ended its run). By then, it had been running in London since 1985. Soon enough, it would blanket the globe, eventually being produced in 42 countries and translated into 21 languages. The latest Broadway production of the show closed September 4, 2016, after playing at the same theatre as the original production.
