Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo, was created into one of the most popular musicals and is currently being serialised as a drama on the BBC.

Members of the West End and Broadway productions of Les Miserables are now bringing their own show, Beyond the Barricade, to the Wyvern Theatre, Swindon on February 3, at 7.30pm, as part of their 20th anniversary tour.

The two-hour show features songs from: The Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Jersey Boys, The Lion King, Blood Brothers, Miss Saigon, Hamilton and Les Miserables.

The show was put together by Andy Reiss and David Fawcett, after they appeared in the Manchester and London casts of Les Miserables. David played the lead role of Jean Valjean in both the Manchester and London productions, and Andy played most of the male characters, and still remains the only person to take on the job of being the show’s resident director, and perform at the same time.

Joining Andy and David on stage in this production are Katie Leeming and Poppy Tierney. Katie joined after playing the lead role of Eponine in the West End production of Les Miserables. Katie also appeared with the Les Miserables cast on the televised Classical Brits awards and the Royal Variety Show, as well as an ensemble vocalist in the Les Miserables movie. Poppy played Cosette in Les Miserables on the UK Tour and in the West End, and also played leading roles in Evita, The Witches of Eastwick, and Miss Saigon.
