‘Les Miserables’ leaves Broadway

Revival closes the curtain on Jan. 6

“Les Miserables” is dismantling the Broadway barricades again.

The revival of producer Cameron Mackintosh’s perennial megamusical — which opened at the Broadhurst last fall, 3½ years after the original Rialto production closed — will shutter Jan. 6.

Current incarnation was originally scheduled as a sort of six-month victory lap for the tuner, whose initial 16-year Gotham stint made it the third longest-running musical on Broadway.

Revival of the Alain Boublil-Claude-Michel Schonberg musical has generally done decent if not spectacular biz since it opened in November 2006, having grossed about $30.3 million in a little over a year on the boards. (That’s a mere drop in the bucket compared to the title’s worldwide gross, which has hit almost $2.9 billion, according to Mackintosh’s office.)

“Les Miz” will take advantage of the annual holiday sales boost before ending its Gotham run. Next major step for the property comes in November 2008, when the tuner begins a Mandarin-language run in Beijing.
