Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Theatre impresario Cameron Mackintosh brings acclaimed musical Miss Saigon back to the West End.

From the writers of Les Miserables, this blockbuster show is now playing at the Prince Edward Theatre, in a brand new production re-imagined by Laurence Connor.

Miss Saigon is an epic musical set against the war in Vietnam; a passionate, powerful and tragic love story full of raw emotion, huge theatrical set pieces and extraordinary music.

Composers of the show, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, who wrote Les Miserables, have written a brand new song called ‘Maybe’ for the role of Ellen in this new production.

Miss Saigon has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg with lyrics by Richard Maltby Jnr and Alain Boublil, adapted from original French lyrics by Alain Boublil. This new production will be directed by Laurence Connor with Musical Staging by Bob Avian and additional Choreography by Geoffrey Garratt, Production Design by Totie Driver and Matt Kinley from an original concept by Adrian Vaux, Costume Design by Andreane Neofitou, Orchestrations by William David Brohn, Lighting Design by Bruno Poet and Sound Design by Mick Potter.

It has been 25 years since the show first premiered in London at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane directed by Nicholas Hytner, where it played for 10 record-breaking years.

Miss Saigon will complete its West End run on 27 February 2016 at the Prince Edward Theatre.

THE STORY

Set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon in Vietnam, Miss Saigon is an epic love story inspired by the opera Madame Butterfly about the relationship between an American GI and a young Vietnamese woman.

  1. Saskia Johnson

    Oh my gosh I’m so excited about this! I think I must be the only person who
    is excited about Alistair Brammer, he doesn’t have the strongest voice but
    that’s not why he’s so good, I saw him in War horse not long ago and he
    just has this natural depth and believability to his acting. His voice and
    his acting are both incredibly sympathetic and I think that will bring a
    whole new side to Chris, I’ve found that the actors who’ve played Chris in
    the past have had really incredible voices but they’ve been a bit one
    dimensional, a bit typical even. I actually love when they go for another
    take on the character. Honestly if they’d wanted a strong voice/ typical
    good looking guy there are plenty of them on the west end! They’ve clearly
    gone for something new and I love it! The only one I’m not sure about is
    Ellen, she seems a bit old to me? But they’ve hit the nail on the head with
    everything else so I won’t come to any conclusions about that yet… GAhh
    I’m just so excited! I hope they do some sort of filming like in War Horse
    so they can show it around the world. It being the 25th anniversary and all
    I think they might do something special like that 🙂

    Excited to see this revival! Will be hard to top Ms Solanga’s performance
    and Mr Price= Perfection♥

  3. Jonathan McCormick

    It looks amazing. If only they had not replaced one of the more powerful
    songs in the show with some shockingly out of nowhere audition piece
    fodder.

  4. The stupid American Broadway Show freaking Miss Saigon
    uses false stereotypes to portray us Vietnamese men as abusive mean jerks
    who hit Vietnamese women

    Miss Saigon is a racist stereotypical Broadcast crappy American shit show
    that is racist towards us Vietnamese
    saying that all Vietnamese women are sex slaves to the White men/White
    Devils/American Imperialists
    and saying that all us Vietnamese men are abusive jerks who hit Vietnamese
    women

    This freaking piece of shit is a racist stereotypical show
    that uses stereotypes

    Not all us Vietnamese men are abusive mean jerks who hit women

    Not all Vietnamese women are not sex slaves to the White men/White
    Devils/American Imperialists

  5. I guess it only makes sense, i mean the none of the performers for the Les
    Miserables 25th annivarsary were french..They might as well call this Miss
    Manila…

  6. They should have included Rachelle’s (Gigi) video clips of portraying the
    role of Ariel in Little Mermaid and Jane on Tarzan

  7. Eponine Enjolras

    oH I want to see this so badly! I love Miss Saigon!!!! Ever since I heard
    Les Mis and Miss Saigon were coming back I’ve been bugging my mum to take
    me to see them! I saw Les Mis last month…please bring Miss Saigon to
    Toronto! <3

  8. I hope Lea’s in the audience when they first perform it. It’ll be great to
    see, since she was so iconic for this role.

  9. Alistair Brammer as Chris is unexpected. I wonder how many more years this
    musical will have a true Vietnamese as Miss Saigon.

  10. Rachelle Ann Go will rock this Miss Saigon. Can’t wait for her on May 2014.
    She will go far! She can do anything and her charm is just beyond.

    Love her talent, very talented artist!

  11. Ralph Jayson Gariguez

    Three Filipino talents in the revival of Miss Saigon?! Wow! I am so happy
    to see you right there Rachelle Ann! So proud of you! You have gone so far!
    God bless you more and the whole cast as well! This is a must watch
    musical!
