Little Britain's Matt Lucas to star in Les Miserables

Little Britain's Matt Lucas has announced that he will star in the West End's Les Miserables for an 11-week run later this year.

In a departure from his comedic take on modern life in the BBC sketch show, Lucas will achieve his dream of appearing in the production, which he says is the best new musical of the last 25 years.

He will appear on stage in the poverty-stricken streets of Paris at the Queen's Theatre from Thursday June 23rd, taking on the role of Thenardier.

"I've been wanting to do it for so long and I decided I just had to go ahead. When I met the writers and the lyricist I acted like I'd met The Beatles," he stated.

Opera star Alfie Boe will also be entertaining those on London theatre breaks, joining the production until Saturday November 26th.

Lucas was recently seen on the small screen starring alongside long-time comedy partner David Walliams in airport sketch series Come Fly With Me.
