Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production of Boublil & Schönberg’s Miss Saigon hits the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on October 4 and you don’t want to miss it.
Read on for youR chance to be at opening night!
Winner of a record-breaking nine Whatsonstage Awards 2015 including Best Show, this epic love story adapts the plot of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly to the Vietnam War and tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim. On her first night at a brothel run by the ruthless Engineer, she meets Chris, a disillusioned American GI. They fall in love, move in together, are separated by the chaotic evacuation of the city and fall of Saigon.
It’s a big show with stunning sets and a company of 60 people. Sooha Kim and Joreen Bautista (a 17 year old whose first job in theatre is this one) share the role of Vietnamese village girl Kim while Ashley Gilmour plays GI Chris. Red Concepcion is a brilliant Engineer who delivers the show-stopping number “The American Dream” and Zoë Doano in the role of Ellen, Chris’ American wife, also performs a brand new song in this production.
Miss Saigon ran on Broadway for over a decade, has had major productions world wide and is now entering its third UK & Irish tour having debuted almost 30 years ago on the West End in 1989.
Miss Saigon combines the best features of opera and big-budget musical. It’s got great songs like in Phantom of the Opera, but there’s also plenty of razzle-dazzle, slick choreography and even a full size helicopter that flies onto stage. It is a stunning show. Visually spectacular and dramatically performed with brilliant songs. If there is one show you see this year, make it this one. ★★★★★ from Clint Drieberg who told Ruth & Conor:
