Overview

Cameron Mackintosh’s long anticipated revival of Claude- Michel Schönberg and Alain Boubil’s tragic musical Miss Saigon continues to wow packed audiences at the Prince Edward theatre.

This breathtaking show from the writers of West End institution, Les Misérables, is based on Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly. The story of a doomed romance is relocated to Saigon during the end of the Vietnam War and tells of young bar girl, Kim, who falls in love with an American GI, Chris, only for them to be cruelly torn apart by the subsequent fall of Saigon. When they are reunited years later there are surprises on both sides as the musical draws to it's tragic conclusion.

The show’s haunting score includes “The Heat is on in Saigon”, “The Movie in My Mind”, “Sun and Moon” and “Last Night of the World.”
The original production, directed by Nicholas Hytner, premiered at the West End’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane back in 1989 and played for just over 10 years. Lea Salonga was catapulted to star status by the role of Kim while Jonathan Pryce starred as the Engineer; both receiving Olivier and Tony Awards for their performances in the West End and Broadway productions. The show famously includes an on stage helicopter that was groundbreaking when it first premiered.

This new production has proved immensely popular with audiences sweeping the board at the 2015 What’s On Stage Awards. The original stars of this acclaimed revival, Eva Noblezada as Kim and Jon Jon Briones as The Engineer, continue to lead the production which is due to play until the 27th of February 2016.

Expect a tragic love story on an epic scale.

Stunning piece of theatre. I think this show has the strongest ensemble singing of any that I've ever seen. Eva Noblezada is suitable sweet, vulnerable and raw and her performance is incredible powerful. Her vocals are perfect, especially on 'I'd Give My Life For You'. However, scene stealer for me was Jon Jon Briones as The Engineer, in a role that I feel was written for him! The set is incredible, and the whole helicopter scene is genuinely spellbinding. See this show, and please take tissues!

Amazing! The cast were stellar, in particular Jon Jon Briones as the Engineer and Eva Noblezada as Kim. The sets were so slick and really set the mood for the scenes. Singing, acting and dancing from everyone in the performance was sublime, so professional. The music/score is so epic and so beautiful; the audience goes through such a range of emotions whilst watching the show. Lighting was used very cleverly as was costume and sound. Fantastic! Wish it hadn't closed in London.

This was a new show to me although I had heard a lot about it. I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the music and the story although at first I wasn't too sure. The performance by each cast member where superb with a stand out performance by Eva Noblezada. The set is obviously spectacular with this being one of the main highlights of the show, and the staging was so well done too. A show that really moves between the highs and lows in life well and covers some interesting themes entwined in with Love. A really good show in all!

This show was hands-down the best thing I have EVER seen on stage! I went in not knowing a thing about the story, or the history behind it, and I was mesmerised from beginning to end! I'm so disappointed it closed before I had the chance to see it again, because I would have done in a heartbeat!

The show was phenomenal and I'd say one of the best I've seen. The leads at the particular show I saw were Tanya Manalang (Kim) and Richard Carson (Chris) who's voices were both equally spectacular. Also Siobhan Dillon (Ellen) had vocals that I could only dream of emulating. Her rendition of 'Maybe' had me in tears. I would recommend Miss Saigon to everyone because it is just one of the most spectacular shows I've ever had the pleasure of viewing.

Up there with the most amazing musicals of them all with Les Mis, and Phantom. It's a powerful, amazing story of love, trust, and determination to get what you want and deserve. So passionate that it has you crying at the end. So happy I have the Blu Ray so I can watch the amazing cast perform over and over but nothing will ever beat it when seeing it live... I hope one day I can see it again! http://www.rosereview.co.uk/?p=340

This was the first time that myself and my daughter had seen Miss Saigon. It was a very well-performed and moving musical and we are looking forward to hopefully being able to see it again during its UK tour.

One of my absolute favourite shows! This was from the last matinee performance of Miss Saigon and I'm so glad to have seen it from the front row, seeing Chuck Marbella (cover) on as the Engineer with Tanya Manalang (alternate) as Kim & Natalie Chua (2nd cover) as Ellen for the last time.

An amazing, heart-wrenching production that literally took my breath away. The sheer talent in Miss Saigon was astounding, particularly from young Eva, who gave the performance of a West End veteran. Boublil and Schonberg's score is one of the most powerful to ever have been written, and really pulls at the heartstrings. A beautifully directed and choreographed production that deserved a longer run in London. Absolutely hoping it will come back - the theatre was packed!
