Singer and now theatre actress Rachelle Ann Go has been chosen to portray Fantine in the upcoming Les Miserables musical that will be revived by London’s West End production.
West End and Go both shared the good news in their official Twitter accounts.
“I guess it’s official! I will be FANTINE!!!! Aaaaaaaahhhhh!,” said Go, who will be joining the whole cast on June 15.
Go previously played the role of Gigi in West End’s Miss Saigon. She won Best Supporting Actress from the Whatsonstage Award and Best Featured Actress from the BroadwayWorld West End awards for her portrayal of the role.
International singer Lea Salonga once played the role of Miss Saigon’s Kim in 1989 and Les Miserables’ Eponine in 1993.
