Miss Saigon – The ultimate love story

Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg's Miss Saigon originally premiered at London’s Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in 1989, and still holds the record as the venue’s longest running show. Now, on its 25th anniversary, a fresh version of the show that broke a multitude of box office records hits the West End stage again, this time at the Prince Edward Theatre.

Playing for a legendary ten years in the West End and almost achieving a decade on Broadway, the musical has delighted audiences in 28 countries and 300 cities, and has been performed in 15 different languages. It has attracted more than forty awards including two Oliviers, three Tonys and four Drama Desk Awards. More than 35 million of us have seen and loved it so far, and it has consistently impressed the critics. Times may change, but the appeal of Miss Saigon never dies.

Cameron Mackintosh himself allegedly finds it hard to believe its quarter of a century since the show’s premiere. He’d made the decision to reconceive and completely reimagine the show ten years ago but its heart and soul remain the same, retaining Bob Avian's remarkable musical staging and the same large cast.

Today’s version includes a fine new song called Maybe, written by Schönberg and Boublil for the character Ellen. The new song has already premiered in Holland and Japan, but this marks the first time it’s been performed in English.

Miss Saigon - The story

It’s 1975 and the Vietnam war is raging. The seventeen year old orphan, Kim, works in a seedy Saigon bar. John, an American GI, pays for his friend Chris to enjoy Kim’s ‘services’ for the night. But the Americans are about to leave Saigon for good, and their night together changes both their lives forever.

Three years later Chris is back home in the US, married to Ellen and certain Kim is dead. But she’s alive, in Bangkok, where she’s bringing up Chris’s son Tam. When Chris comes to Bangkok with his new wife, Kim’s long-held hopes for a loving reunion are dashed. But she is desperate for her son to enjoy a safe future in America with his dad, and she makes the ultimate sacrifice to make it so.

Press Reviews

The 18-year-old Eva Noblezada is extraordinarily vulnerable and touching as Kim, and her raw, deeply felt performance and soaring voice lend the show its heart. There were moments when she moved me to tears The Telegraph

After a 15-year absence Miss Saigon makes a stirring return to the West End. It remains a huge spectacle, and the music surges and soars The Evening Standard

Absolutely awesome would recommend it

London Box Office customer

Touching

Thought at first that I wouldn't enjoy this as it seemed a bit slow getting off the ground. Came away having been moved a bit!


London Box Office customer

best show in West end

Everything was fantastic everyone in it is so talented the storyline is very moving the music is great must see show, this was my second time and was just as amazing as the first time


London Box Office customer

At times the music or sound effects were too loud.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

This show was amazing i would love to see it again


London Box Office customer

sad ending

London Box Office customer

Unexpected

Knew very little about the story before I came to watch. Absolutely loved it and was enthralled from start to finish. A standing ovation at the end highlighted how fantastic the show was. Downside if I had to find one was sound - vocals needs to be slightly louder.


London Box Office customer

Not for Children

Great storyline & acting. Helicopter scenes superb.


London Box Office customer

Awe-Inspiring

Absolutely incredible, would happily watch again


London Box Office customer

Excellent show!!

London Box Office customer

Outstanding show in every way!

Miss Saigon was absolutely outstanding. Captivating from beginning to end. Powerful story sucks you in instantly and leaves you wanting more. The music is varied and upbeat - appealing to all. While applause is directed at the talented performers, let it be known that the lighting and special effects crew are just as deserving of applause as those taking centre stage. Thank you all for putting together such a powerful masterpiece!


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

disapointing

helicopter best bit any chance of my mony back


London Box Office customer

Miss Saigon - disappointment

Having heard so much about this show, we found it a disappointment, particularly the sound system. The cast when they sang together was incoherent whilst solo vocals were perfect. No hurry to go back.


London Box Office customer

great

great vocals


London Box Office customer

Excellent but not for children or easily offended

Great all around. Just lots of talk of whores and selling oneself. A must see in London


London Box Office customer

A tragic, true to life story

All ushers were extremely helpful and friendly. The show was lovely.


London Box Office customer

must see

London Box Office customer

Great story

We were in dress circle and found it hard to hear the words


London Box Office customer

Can't fault it,excellent


London Box Office customer

Moving

London Box Office customer

Good if you like slightly childish live stories

This show was a little tedious and hard to take seriously. Everything was sung no dialogue. It was ok and relatively enjoyable but I expected a bit more. The love story was kind of naff.


London Box Office customer

take your tissues!

We struggled a bit with the sound and understanding the words being sang. There were however some fantastic scenes, but with so much activity going on on the stage, you need to have a good seat with a good view of the whole stage to appreciate it all. However, all that said, it was a very moving story and I was glad I had tissues handy.


London Box Office customer

Not my cup of tea

Good story line but too crass for by liking.


London Box Office customer

Great show!

Great show. The acting and the costumes of the artists were really sizzling hot and convincing. Great voices too. Really talented artists!!!!


London Box Office customer

A must see show for any adult

Miss Saigon went beyond our expectations, it was very dramatic, very moving, a very strong story line. The whole show was perfection, & I would recommend to any adult who has not seen the show to book your seats now. An absolutely brilliant performance by all the cast, a show not to be missed.


London Box Office customer

better 2nd time

I saw miss Saigon when it originally opened and thought it good however Jon Jon Briones engineer surpassed Jonathan Pryce by a harbour mile totally owning the part as did the actors playing Kim Chris and John. Absolutely brilliant


London Box Office customer

powerful story

powerful story but adult themes and some scenes very strong sexual content , lot of ethically issues


London Box Office customer

Must see once in a lifetime

First 10 minutes could be bothersome to some people even if it showed the real life


London Box Office customer

First timer

I've never been to a theatre before do didnt now what to expect but really enjoyed it.


London Box Office customer

Heartfelt political message

Interval to long. Excellent vocals by all those thatvsang

London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

spectacular , creative, colourful, sensitive

London Box Office customer

Incredible, powerful, beautiful

Absolutely incredible show, I loved it. It was brilliantly choreographed with so many amazing singers compared to most shows where you normally get one or two. The meaning and the story line were portrayed with such feeling and emotion, the set design incredible, some tears shed but some laughter too. Suitable for 16-18+ with the content. A must see! Very clever.


London Box Office customer

Almost as good as the original!

I have watched Miss Saigon when it first came out in London (Leah Salonga). This time i took my mum (as her bday treat) along with my sister and brother. As i have seen the play before - it was a pretty good comparison. Todays production is in a smaller scale, cast are less and props are also less! However if you u are watching this show for the first time - IT IS WORTH IT! The existing Kim has a powerful voice that stands out in the group when they are singing (I like that very much!). The rest of the cast was also good. But the bar scene is not recommended for families with young children hence not recommended for family viewing!


London Box Office customer

Fantastic

London Box Office customer

Lively

The show was very much as expected but a little repetitive with highs and lows of the music. Worthwhile going to see but expected more from the whole thing.


London Box Office customer

Very enjoyable

Loved the show but recommend hankies to be ready at the end of the performance


London Box Office customer

Review of Miss Saigon

30 May 2014 in Reviews

Miss Saigon - Prince Edward Theatre The Eighties are back. Or at least a fine example of the eighties blockbuster musical.

Throughout that decade the producer Cameron Macintosh dominated the West End and Broadway with a series of phenomenally successful shows including Les Mis, which is still very much with us on stage and DVD and Miss Saigon which ran for many years at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. It’s been dusted down and spruced up in a touring production which now arrives at the producers own theatre, the Prince Edward.
