Miss Saigon is the iconic musical by Alan Boubil and Claude-Michel Schönberg that premiered in the West End at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 1989, sparking performances across the world. The production is one of the longest running West End and Broadway musicals of all time and returns to the London for the first time since it closed 15 years ago. The revival production of Miss Saigon is currently running at the Prince Edward Theatre, with press night held on the 21st May 2014.
Inspired by a photograph and adapted from Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Miss Saigon is a tale of love and loss following the fall out of the Vietnam War. An American GI, Chris and Vietnamese bar worker , Kim, begin a love affair that leaves a lasting impact.
Boubil and Schönberg’s score is brought to life once again in the revival production at the Prince Edward Theatre. Acclaimed musical numbers such as “The Heat is On in Saigon,” “Sun and Moon” and “This is the Hour” continue to wow audiences.
