London: ‘Les Miserables’ producer Cameron Mackintosh has offered teen pop star Justin Bieber a role in the musical when it comes to Canada.

The musical is heading to Toronto and Mackintosh said he wants the `Baby` singer who was born in Canada to appear in his new all-Canadian production, reported Contactmusic.

"You`re going to have a completely new, all-Canadian production opening at the Royal Alex in July, 2012. I would love to hear Justin Bieber sing `Empty Chairs at Empty Tables`.

Please spread the word that he`d be more than welcome in the show," Mackintosh said.

The 64-year-old has reworked the musical - which is based on the novel of the same name by Victor Hugo and the musical by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil, which follows the lives of several characters during the French revolution.

The revamped production - which first opened at the Barbican Centre in London in 1985 - features new staging and a totally new set design, inspired by Hugo`s paintings.

"I was inspired to do a new version when I realised that the show was going to be 25 years old. You always have a different point of view on something after 25 years and just for my own sanity`s sake, I had to see it fresh again," Mackintosh added.
