NEW YORK (AP) — The latest Broadway incarnation of "Les Miserables" will roll up its flags this fall.

The third Broadway incarnation of Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil's legendary musical will end its run Sept. 4 at the Imperial Theatre after 1,026 performances over 2½ years.

This version, directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell, capped a national tour that began in 2010. When it arrived, it starred Ramin Karimloo, Will Swenson, Caissie Levy and Nikki M. James. It currently stars Alfie Boe, Swenson and Montego Glover.

The musical boasts music by Schonberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer and original French text by Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel. The songs include "I Dreamed a Dream," ''Do You Hear the People Sing?" and "One Day More."
