The Heat is Back On: The Remaking of Miss Saigon
It has been 25 years since the world was first captivated by the wonder of the tragic love story that is Miss Saigon.
From legendary Oscar®, Golden Globe® and BAFTA® award-winning Broadway producer Cameron MacKintosh, comes a powerful and deeply moving performance that still captures hearts and leaves viewers speechless in awe, years after its original run.
“Greatest musical of all time” - Daily Mail
The spectacular, sell-out 25th Anniversary Gala Performance received four 1989 Laurence Olivier Award nominations when it first debuted in London and is a true celebration of theatre’s magic.
Miss Saigon is passionate, profound and heart wrenchingly honest. The epic love story tells the tale of young bargirl Kim (Eva Noblezada, Les Miserables), orphaned by war who falls in love with American GI, Chris (Alistair Brammer, Les Miserables, Any Dream Will Do).
Their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon and it’s how they pick up the pieces and learn to live again that is at the heart of this global phenomenon.
