Booking to 27 February 2016
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.
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.

WOW!!! More power to the production. The Best tragic-drama musicale of all
Gusto ko yung cast ng Engineer!
fil am lead C:
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♥
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
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
and saying that all us Vietnamese men are abusive jerks who hit Vietnamese
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
oh i can’t wait to watch it. please perform in Manila, Philippines 🙂
Rachelle Ann Go is amzing,,,she is a pop star to musical..
I think the new miss saigon also from philppines ^_^
My uncle watched the original London cast. Why wasn’t I born that year?
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
They should have included Rachelle’s (Gigi) video clips of portraying the
role of Ariel in Little Mermaid and Jane on Tarzan
is eva noblezeda is also a filipino? but just based in the US?
OMG the woman playing Kim sounds fantastic on this, what a brilliant find.
Nice to see them cast an unknown star
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
It was soooo much better than any musical ever! ( well maybe on par with Billy Elliot ) sob still at the ending
The announcement of the 2014 revival cast of Miss Saigon! Who’s excited?
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.
Rachelle Ann Go, true blue Filipina…aus…
Alistair Brammer as Chris is unexpected. I wonder how many more years this
musical will have a true Vietnamese as Miss Saigon.
Extraordinary editing for a promotional piece. Good work. Looking forward
to the US tour.
Actually not just 3 filipinos are in the cast. Filipino dominates the miss
saigon cast . Woot woot
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!
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
