New in 2017 Direct from its smash London run, a revival of the award-winning musical love story set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon. Begins March 1st.
From the producers: Set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon, "Miss Saigon" is an epic love story about the relationship between an American GI and a young Vietnamese woman. Orphaned by war, 17-year-old Kim is forced to work as a bar girl in a sleazy Saigon nightclub, owned by a notorious wheeler-dealer known as "The Engineer." John, an American GI, buys his friend Chris the services of Kim for the night—a night that will change their lives forever.
"Miss Saigon" originally premiered in the West End in 1989; it came to Broadway two years later and ran for nearly ten years. The musical represented authors Schönberg and Boublil's second major success, following "Les Misérables" in 1985. The current revival opened at the West End’s Prince Edward Theatre in May 2014 and closed in February 2016.
Newcomer Eva Noblezada and Jon Jon Briones will star as Kim - the role that launched Lea Salonga's career - and the Engineer, respectively. They reprise their performances from the West End premiere of the Laurence Connor-helmed production.
