Universal pushes back 'LES MIZ' Staged Concert release date due to new 'bonus features'
Universal Pictures UK recently notified customers who pre-ordered "Les Miserables: The Staged Concert" on DVD & Blu-Ray of a new release date for the home distribution of the recent West End concert. The release, which was scheduled for April 6th, has now been moved to April 20th for all distributors. Filmed on Stage learns from production sources the delay is due to the editing of new bonus features, produced specifically for the release by Universal, which are planned to be featured both on the DVD & Blu-Ray versions of the concert. No further information on the bonus features is currently known, except for the fact both Michael Ball and Alfie Boe filmed additional material last month for the release.
