Killian Donnelly is the New West End Jean Valjean

30 Jun 2017

Legendary musical Les Misérables has a new Jean Valjean! West End star Killian Donnelly joined the company of the Queen’s Theatre on 10th June 2017 and is going to play the prisoner 24601 for at least a year.

This is not Killian Donnelly’s first experience on the barricades. He was part of the cast of Les Misérables from 2008 to 2011 going from being a swing to playing the role of Enjolras and third cover Jean Valjean. He then went on playing the lead in The Commitments, Memphis and Kinky Boots in the West End and on Broadway until he finally landed his dream role of Jean Valjean. Other new faces of Les Misérables this season are Carley Stenson as Fantine, Steven Meo as Thénardier, Karis Jack as Eponine, Jaqueline Tateas as Madame Thénardier and Hyoie O’Grady as Enjolras.

Based on Victor Hugo’s famous masterpiece, Boublil and Schönberg’s Les Misérables has been playing for over 30 years, telling the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his journey of atonement and redemption that brings him from a Bishop’s house in Digne in 1815, to a factory in Montreuil sur Mer in 1823, up to the barricades of the Student Uprising of the 1830s in Paris. Les Misérables is a timeless story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion and sacrifice, fight and redemption that will move you and enchant you with iconic songs such as “I Dreamed A Dream”, “On My Own”, “Bring Him Home” and “One Day More”.
