NEW YORK (AP) — When "Les Miserables" arrives on Broadway next March, it will find a familiar home.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh said Thursday that the current U.S. tour of "Les Miserables" — which kicked off in 2010 and is currently in Sacramento, Calif. — will land at New York City's Imperial Theatre, the show's former home on Broadway for nearly 13 years.

The re-imagined story will begin previews March 1 with an official opening night set for March 23.

The show marks the third time the show has made it to Broadway. The original landed in 1987, first at the Broadway Theatre before moving to the Imperial three years later. A revival that lasted three years was mounted in 2006 at the Broadhurst Theatre.
