It has also been announced that the production will shutter for three days, following the evening performance June 18, in order to facilitate the installation of a brand-new state-of-the-art surround sound system and the building of a bigger pit to accommodate the slightly larger orchestra necessary to play the new 25th Anniversary Tour orchestrations. The production will re-open with the new cast and musicians June 23.
Sheen, who will play Fantine, has previously appeared in Les Miserables as Eponine; she most recently played the title role in Mary Poppins on the UK and US tours. For the Washington, DC stand at the Kennedy Center, she won the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Lead Actress. Other West End credits include creating the role of Jennifer Gabriel in The Witches of Eastwick, and starring in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at the National Theatre.
Mather, who will play Marius, and Wood, who will play Cosette, are both making their West End debuts in this production.
