NEW YORK—”Les Miserables” played for the 6,138th time in New York on Friday night, making it the second-longest running show in Broadway history.

The epic musical, which traces intertwining lives in 19th-century France, swept past “A Chorus Line,” which had a 6,137-performance run from 1975 to 1990. The next target is “Cats” – which closed in New York in 2000 after a Broadway-record 7,485 shows.

Friday night’s audience included a number of original “Les Miserables” cast members, including Colm Wilkinson (who played the original Jean Valjean), Judy Kuhn (Cosette) and David Bryant (Marius), to the delight of gay men everywhere.
