Two new cast members who may be familiar to London theatre fans have been announced for the special anniversary concert of Les Miserables.
Ramin Karimloo and Samantha Barks will join a previously-announced company including Matt Lucas and Nick Jonas for the event, which will take place at the O2 arena on October 3rd 2010.
Barks is currently starring in Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre, while Karimloo is playing the Phantom in Love Never Dies at the Adelphi.
Theatre mogul Cameron Mackintosh said he is grateful to Andrew Lloyd Webber for allowing Karimloo to "take a night off to play Enjolras".
"I am delighted to announce that we have now completed the principal casting for the 25th anniversary concert at the O2," he added.
Meanwhile, it has also been announced that Broadway actor Norm Lewis is to join the regular production of Les Miserables soon after completing his run in Sondheim on Sondheim.
