Back for its second Broadway run, the revival of Miss Saigon has enraptured audiences with its dramatic narration of war-time romance. An epic love story between an orphaned Vietnamese girl and an American GI, Miss Saigon is a multiple Tony Award-winning musical that speaks straight to the heart. Cameron Mackintosh's stunning take on the controversial musical is one of this year’s must-see shows.
Why Watch Miss Saigon
Miss Saigon first premiered on Broadway in 1991 and had a successful run through 2001. It is now back on Broadway for a limited time, set to close in January, 2018. One of the longest running shows on Broadway, this extraordinary story of innocent love prevailing against the cultural odds and forces of war remains relevant today as ever. The musical boasts of extravagant stage effects including a thundering helicopter. With stirring performances by Eva Noblezada and Jon Jon Briones, this musical will transfix audiences and urge you to ponder about human endurance and happiness.
Miss Saigon is about a forbidden romance set in the Vietnam War. It tells the story of a 17 year old Vietnamese girl, Kim, who falls in love with an American G.I., Chris. He promises her a wonderful world away from the sleaze and despair of the bar in Saigon, where she works at the behest of a notorious bar owner named the Engineer. Separated by war, years later she embarks on a 3-year journey with her son to find his father and her lover - Chris. The musical narrates her struggle for survival and her fight for a future.
Historical romance fans | Broadway revival enthusiasts
“This is a most worthy revival, and now, minus the controversy, fans are free to re-live the thrill.”
“Here’s a musical that always goes for broke. Ballads aren’t intimate but belted to the rafters; characters don’t just walk off the stage but are whisked away on a life-size helicopter; emotions aren’t muted but operatic—which is natural, since the plot transposes key elements from “Madama Butterfly” to mid-nineteen-seventies Vietnam.”
