Producer Cameron Mackintosh announced that 'Les Miserables' an epic story based on a novel written by Victor Hugo which took place in 19th-century France will step on Broadway next year, March 2014.
It would be the third time for 'Les Miserables' to be on Broadway. Previously, the musical landed on the Broadway stage in 1987 and ranked as the third longest running musical. Then again it was performed in 2006 and ran for two years.
Cameron Mackintosh who was also involved in production of Cats, Mary Poppins or The Phantom of the Opera, expects that the hunger for the Broadway version of the musical is boosted by its recent movie version.

"What we're counting on is that people who loved the movie will now really want to see 'Les Misérables' on stage, and people who loved the original musical were swept up by the film and say, 'I can't wait for another chance to see it onstage again,'" said Mr. Mackintosh for The New York Times,
The newest version of the musical 'Les Misérables' will not include a revolving turntable used in previous Broadway productions. Musical's new version which has been touring the nations for past two years will also feature scenery based on Victor Hugo's paintings for his novel.
