‘Les Miserables’ hits the road again

Turntable-free staging kicks off this fall

“Les Miserables” is hitting the road again — and this time, it’s not bringing the iconic turntable with it.

Brit producer Cameron Mackintosh is launching a 25th anniversary North American tour of “Les Miz” this fall, in a new production that previously toured the U.K.

Entirely new staging, from directors Laurence Connor and James Powell, takes its visual inspiration from the paintings of Victor Hugo, who penned the novel on which the tuner is based.

Enduringly popular musical, a global hit along the lines of “The Phantom of the Opera,” played on Broadway for 16 years beginning in 1987 (and then returned for a 14-month victory lap starting in 2006). A U.S. national tour played for almost two decades before it shuttered in 2006.

Latest version kicks off Nov. 19 at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse, and will stop at cities including Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Detroit; Louisville, Ky.; and Salt Lake City, among others.
