Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre

Prince Edward Theatre, London

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.

Sunday Times Rich List 2014: Entertainment and West End Theatre Rich List
The Sunday Times has published its annual Rich List of the UK's wealthiest people. The Rich List is the definitive guide to the wealthiest people in Britain and Ireland and includes a list of the richest entertainment and music industry professionals. Based on this year's Rich List, we've put together the richest movers and shakers in the West End Theatre industry, including producers and theatre owners, musicians and writers. The big news this year is that theatre impressario Cameron Mackintosh has made it on to the UK's billionaires list (Read More).    West End Theatre Rich List RANK NAME WEALTH RISE/FALL  COMMENTARY 1 Cameron Mackintosh £1,000m UP £175m Cameron opens his new revival of Miss Saigon this week at the Prince Edward Theatre, and if all goes well expect a Broadway production and further international roll-out, plus a possible big-screen adaptation. His movie version of Les Miserables not only earned him significant revue, helping him achieve billionaire status for the first time this year, but the show has also recently returned to Broadway. Investment in restoring his 7 West End theatres has also increased these assets, plus UK tours of Barnum and Betty Blue Eyes and continuous productions of Phantom and the rest of his stable of hits will guarantee his billionaire status for a while. 2 Andrew Lloyd Webber £640m UP £20m Not a fabulous year for Lloyd Webber with his new West End show Stephen Ward closing after only four months. But his former hits including The Phantom of the Opera, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar continue to perform well, and a forthcoming Rocket Pictures (owned by Elton John) animated version of Joseph is in the works. Lloyd Webber is also planning a stage version of School of Rock - probably for Broadway, and his assets include a number of West End theatres including crown jewels the London Palladium and Theatre Royal Drury Lane. 3 Simon Cowell £300m  £50m Simon Cowell gets to go in this year - in the place that his rival Simon Fuller took last year. Both have dallied with the dangerous game of West End musicals - and came unstuck. Fuller invested in Spice Girls musical Viva Forever! at the Piccadilly Theatre - a show based on a TV talent show - and it flopped. This year Simon Cowell did the same, backing Harry Hill's musical parody of The X Factor, I Can't Sing! That show, which closed earlier this month, proved an even bigger flop than Viva!, lasting only a few weeks in the West End. This won't damage Cowell much with the eighth series of Britain's Got Talent now back on UK screens and the return of The X Factor later in the year. 4 Elton John £260m UP £20m Elton John's musical of Billy Elliot continues to perform in London (now starring West End leading lady Ruthie Henshall), as does Disney's The Lion King, for which John wrote the music. There's no further news about his planned biopic Rocketman - a movie musical about his early life, through his film company Rocket Pictures, which could also make the move to the stage. Elton is one of the UK's biggest charity doners, having given away £24m in 2013. 5 Tim Rice £149m  -- Tim Rice has done well working with other Rich Listers - including Andrew Lloyd Webber on Joseph, Jesus Chirst Superstar and Evita, and Elton John on Disney's The Lion King. That also goes for a number of other Disney shows he has contributed to including Aladdin - which is currently a big hit on Broadway and there are plans to bring it over to London sooner rather than later. He has been less successful working with others, with his recent new musical From Here To Eternity at the Shaftesbury Theatre only lasting a few month and failing to find favour with large audiences. 6 Brian May & Roger Taylor £105m, 1000m £10m, £10m This may be the last time Queen bandmates May and Taylor appear in our West End rich list for a while as their rock musical We Will Rock You, based on the band's back catalogue, ends its run at the Dominion Theatre at the end of May. That is unless rumours of a sequel prove true! Outside of theatre they are working on a new album and continue to tour. 7 Judy Craymer £65m  -- The dust has now settled over the failure of Judy Craymer's new musical, Viva Forever!,, and the successful impressario has refocused on Mamma Mia!, with the London production continuing to do well at the Novello Theatre in London, as well as on Broadway and in multiple other territories, including a recent return to La Vegas. A possible movie sequel to Mamma Mia!, which might have also spawned a new musical, has stalled.    FUTURE WEST END RICH LIST Next year's West End Theatre Rich List might include the following, if new stage projects go to plan: Harvey Weinstein  (£115m), Gary Barlow (£65m) Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who is married to British fashion-designer Georgina Chapman, has reworked his musical adaptation of Finding Neverland. Originally staged in Leicester, the show has been reworked by a new creative team including songwriter Gary Barlow and director Diane Paulus. The show will premiere in July 2014 as part of the 2014-15 season at the American Repertory Theater, and if a success will move to Broadway and then the West End. JK Rowling (£570m) Writer of the Harry Potter series of books, JK Rowling, is collaborating on a new stage play based on Harry Potter's early years. With Once director John Tiffany rumoured to be directing, alongside Let The Right One In adapter Jack Thorne writing the show, it could be in the West End by 2015. LINKS Sunday Times Rich List
Cameron Mackintosh fortune tops £1 billion
Theatre impressario Cameron Mackintosh has seen his personal fortune top £1 billion for the first time. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="240"] Cameron Mackintosh (left) with Graham Norton earlier this month[/caption] The West End producer has seen his fortune rise by a staggering £175m in the past year, and is now worth £1 billion. His 2013 fortune in the Sunday Times' annual Rich List was £825 million. The rise is mainly due to profits from his 2012 blockbuster movie version of Les Miserables starring Hugh Jackman and the continued success of his stable of musical theatre hits. The impressario has just opened a high-profile new production of Les Mis on Broadway, and his revival of hit show Miss Saigon is now in previews at the Prince Edward Theatre in London ahead of its premiere on 21 May. The shows joins his production of The Phantom of the Opera in London and New York, plus a new UK touring production of Betty Blue Eyes and forthcoming UK tour of Barnum. The original production of Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre in London also continues to do great business. His production company, Cameron Mackintosh Ltd, is produces a number of international tours and local productions of Les Miserables, Phantom of Miss Saigon, and his theatre division Delfont Mackintosh Ltd owns 7 West End theatres including the Prince of Wales Theatre and Prince Edward Theatre. Mackintosh has said that he would like to produce more movies of his musicals, with a rumoured film adaptation of Miss Saigon in the works. Mackintosh was working on a new movie version of musical My Fair Lady, but this has been cancelled. According to the Sunday Times Rich List, to be published on Sunday 18 April 2014, Mackintosh will join a growing band of billionaires resident in the UK. The number of billionaires now living in the UK is said to have risen to over 100 for the first time, which is more than triple the number of a decade ago and means that Britain now has more billionaires per head of population (104 in total) than any other country in the world. Also, London now has more billionaires living in the city - 72 - than any other city in the world. Indian-born brothers Sri and Gopi Hinduja top the Sunday Times Rich List this year with a fortune of £11.9bn.

Cameron Macktinsh: My Fair Lady Movie cancelled
Cameron Macktintosh has revealed that his big screen adaptation of My Fair Lady has been cancelled. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="240"] Cameron Mackintosh and Graham Norton[/caption] Talking to Graham Norton on BBC Radio 2 on Saturday (3 May 2014) to promote his new production of Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre, the producer revealed  that the planned movie remake of My Fair Lady with Sony Pictures has been shelved. Mackintosh said that rights and the studio were primarily to blame. The movie had a screenplay penned by Emma Thompson, and was rumoured to have starred Carey Mulligan as Eliza Doolittle (Carey is currently in rehearsals to star in Stephen Dadry's revival of David Hare play Skylight at the Wyndham's Theatre alongside Bill Nighy). Lerner and Loewe's classic musical was revived by Mackintosh at the National Theatre in 2001, with a subsequent West End transfer to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Mackintosh scored a big hit in 2012 with his movie version of epic musical Les Miserables starring Hugh Jackson, and he hopes to develop further movie musicals. Miss Saigon The Movie has been rumoured to be in early development. A new Broadway revival of My Fair Lady is said to be in the works for 2014 by legendary music exec Clive Davis. Mackintosh's new production of Miss Saigon in now in previews at the Prince Edward Theatre, opening on 21 May 2014. MOBY DICK During the interview, Mackintosh also dropped heavy hints that a revival of his 1992 musical Moby Dick may be on the horizon. The show has a book by Robert Longden and music and lyrics by Longden and Hereward Kaye. Mackintosh said: "This is a show, Moby Dick, that keeps coming back. And lots of people are doing it, in fact there is a whole new version going on at the moment". The producer said that people often ask "when will the Whale return?" and his reply was, "Believe me, it will!"

26 thoughts on “Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre”

  1. 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 🙂

  2. Elizabeth Sotelo

    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

    1. It was soooo much better than any musical ever! ( well maybe on par with Billy Elliot ) sob still at the ending

  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!

  12. Inglenook Productions

    Musical Theatre Producer, Cameron Mackintosh, is delighted to announce the
    full casting for his upcoming new production of MISS SAIGON which opens in
    London in May 2014 at the Prince Edward Theatre. You do not want to miss
