Actor - Creative Director

A coffee adventure on an international stage.

As a Broadway and West End performer, the last 25 years have involved a number of incredible projects for Earl as an actor, creative director and producer; and is now well known for playing 'Inspector Javert' in Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Les Misérables, worldwide.

Les Misérables, at the Palace Theatre in 1996, was Earl’s West End debut. This subsequently led to performing at the Euro ’96 Final at Wembley, the first outdoor concert at Hylands Park and the Entente Cordiale Celebration at Windsor Castle. He then went on to co-producing five symphonic concert presentations with the BSO.

In 2008 Earl played the part of Inspector Javert at the Queens Theatre in London and then on the 25th Anniversary European tour. He was the Bishop of Digne at London’s O2 Arena concert in 2010 before returning to the Queens for a brief run as Javert earlier in 2012. He was invited to play this role in Toronto in 2013/14 and then on to his Broadway debut in 2014 at the Imperial Theater, returning in 2015 for an additional 9 month stint. He later reprised this role in Manila and Singapore in 2016.

...and all that is just his association with Les Misérables...

The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shrivelled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue; and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice.” Charles Dicken’s

"Earl Carpenter is brilliant. I doubt I have ever seen a more morally conflicted Javert than the one Carpenter gives us, leading from seeming certitude to total despair as he realizes he has believed in nothing at all."
