Miss Saigon Information
Quite simply one of the most beloved musicals of all time, Schönberg and Boublil's Miss Saigon ends its limited engagement at the Broadway Theatre on January 14, 2018.
Featuring dazzling performances by Tony nominee Eva Noblezada as Kim, Olivier Award nominee Jon Jon Briones as The Engineer, and Alistair Brammer as Chris, Miss Saigon offers the theatregoer a truly operatic and heart-wrenching experience. Cameron Mackintosh's revival boasts a huge cast and magnificent sets that bring Vietnam to life in a storied time of crisis. Based on Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly, the musical became an instant classic after its 1989 West End debut, especially after the successful depiction of a helicopter landing on stage, and almost thirty years later Miss Saigon remains as epic and as breathtaking as ever!
