As the curtain came down on Les Miserables' 6,138th performance Jan. 25, the audience was showered with yellow balloons exclaiming "One Singular Sensation Salutes Another!" as Miz topped A Chorus Line's record run.

A Chorus Line played 6,137 performances. The 6,138th performance of Les Miz — the French originated pop opera that was developed, refined and produced by Brits — makes the show the second-longest running play or musical in Broadway history, behind Cats (which Cameron Mackintosh also produced, and Trevor Nunn also directed).
