NEW YORK (AP) — Someone is dreaming the dream: "Les Miserables" is coming back to Broadway.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh said Monday that the national tour of the epic musical about life in 19th-century France will make a stop on Broadway in March 2014 at a Shubert theater.

The move comes on the heels of the Oscar-nominated big screen adaptation directed by Tom Hooper and starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway.

It will mark the third time the show has made it to Broadway. The original landed in 1987 and played 6,680 performances, ranking as the third-longest-running musical in Broadway history. A revival was mounted in 2006 but closed in 2008.

The national tour, currently in South Carolina, began in November 2010 and has played 64 cities throughout North America.
