***Last chance to see***
Winner of a record-breaking 9 Whatsonstage Awards in 2015 including BEST SHOW, do not miss your chance to see Miss Saigon at Prince Edward Theatre. This sensational musical from the composer and librettist of Les Misérables is moving to Broadway. The last performance in London will be on 27 February 2016!
This iconic reimagining of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly depicts the relationship between orphaned prostitute Kim and American marine Chris. Set in Vietnam in the 1970s, the two lovers are torn from one another by the fall of Saigon and the enforced American evacuation of the city.
This production by Laurence Connor delivers an emotional punch with a satirical sting in its tail. Connor juxtaposes powerful visuals of communism and capitalism in a technically masterful approach to this musical that sees helicopters sour and army drills shake the stage. Combined with Bob Avian’s sensational musical staging, striking sets by Totie Driver and Matt Kinley and Eva Noblezada’s (Kim) and Alistair Brammer’s (Chris) extraordinary voices and heartfelt performances, this musical storytelling of a classic love story is sure to impress.
2nd time we have seen it - even better than the 1st time. Such a shame it is closing. Will go to New York to see it on Broadway next year
I love this show! I cry every time I see it .
i am glad to finally this amazing show last thursday Feb 25, 2016! i have been wanting to see it the first time i set foot here in england. amazing performance, well done Miss Saigon cast especially The Engineer!!! A must see show when in London :-) Kudos!!!
Really enjoyed Ms Saigon. My friend accompanied me on Tuesday & she was blown away by the performance.
What more can I say ............... Just amazing sets and even more brilliant show the second time around
This is the 7th time I have seen this show and it still leaves me with goose bumps all over. FANTASTIC! Very sad to learn the show is closing at the end of Feb, but hope it will return again at some point in the future.
Came to the party late First saw the show in January 2016 So good came back in February before the show goes to NYC The performances were fantastic I will consider going across the pond to see on Broadway
Absolutely loved it! I cried at the end if the play, well played! One of the best I have seen!
Fantastic show The singing was awesome. We were sitting on the back row of the stalls. Couldn't hear all the words but we got the message
a must to see at west end
An awesome musical packed full of great songs, good singers and good seat however from start to finish it was just so depressing. I also think the story is a little hard to follow. Glad I've seen it but I won't be back! It's also a little OTT on the sexy scenes
The story was amazing, the singing took my breath away and the character of "the engineer" was brilliantly played. A little more chemistry between the 2 main characters would have got 5stars
This show grew into a amazing love story and theatrical masterpiece!! And it opened your mind to the whole idea of war babies. Beautifully done and the saddest ending ever. Take your tissues!
A spine tingling performance. Say it quietly, but this might just be a better musical than Les Mis!
Beautiful but sad story of love and loss depicted through powerful and touching music. This is a must-see musical.
Best show I have seen,really told the story from the Vietnam war,so realistic ,so amazing recommend to anyone
I know that this is a classic loved by so many but for me it fell a little short. The story is very good and poingnatly told, with strong visuals on stage and emotion. The best character was without a doubt 'The Engineer'. The songs did not have as lasting an impact as I would have hoped and they just weren't as good as others. Additionally the first 15 minutes were hard to hear/understand but it picked up after that.
really need telescope
Best show I've ever seen. Loved it. Could watch it all again today, tomorrow and the day after that. Absolutely fabulous. Amazing show.
This was a truly outstanding production from the set design, sound, lighting, and musicians, to the fantastically talented actors. We were captivated from the very start. This is definitely not one to miss.
Excellent production much more animated than the original I saw. One disappointment sad the arrangement of "Last Night of our Lives". The recurring line is "played on a solo saxophone" yet there was not the prevalent sax solo to accompany it. Otherwise a really much improved, and in fact raunchier production.
My friend and I saw the original 25 years ago. Much softer, more pleasant and concentrated on the romance rather than the politics. We both agreed that it was not as good as the original and unnecessarily lewd at times. Disappointed from Edinburgh
The story and overall performance was beautiful and so impressive. I doubt the show would've excelled as much without the brilliant cast. A shame it's leaving London but glad I caught it before it left.
Thought it was a beautiful show. The main characters were incredible. Strong voices that blended together. Enjoyed the portrayal of the pimp.
The show was amazing, the voices from the cast was beautiful. Acting second to none wished I had seen it earlier to come watch it again.
I saw this show years ago and it was fantastic then, I went again with a friend who had not seen it and we both thought it was brilliant, just a shame it finishes soon as it is a must
I went to see miss Saigon on the 20th of Feb and took my 13 year old daughter with me. It was quite sexual at the start but at 13 a lot of the conotations went over her head. I found the engineer quite difficult to understand and I didn't know the story beforehand so you do have to listen carefully and I did have to explain some to my daughter. There was a lot of singing which was somewhat unnecessary and more dialogue would have been better. It was a very emotional show but a great and surprising storyline and the singing was sublime by all. The sets were brilliant and the helicopter scene was phenomenal and very believable. Well worth going.
What a fantastic show very glad we went to see it before it went to Broadway.
I love it,
Awesome. Please do not close such a successful and compelling show. I'd certianly go again and again and would recommend anyone to go and see it.
Incredibly moving, totally gripping from the start to the end. Definitely a must see for anybody wanting to experience the world of theatre.
Perfect and excellent performance
The staff were pleasant and very helpful, and the show tops others we have seen.
Absolutely brilliant. So pleased I got to see this show before it left for Broadway
Great show, great cast and front of house was so good and helpful all round a brilliant night out!
Fabulous set, such gifted and talented performers, outstanding musicianship, First rate in every way. Our loss is Broadway's gain. Don't Miss this...see it while you can!
We saw the original version of Miss Saigon in 1989 and had high expectations of this second one. Yesterday's certainly matched these. We loved the music and special effects. We did find the voices of the leading ladies rather harsh. We think it is a pity the show is finishing so soon. The theatre was full.
Absolutely blown away by this yesterday. Outstanding performances from all the cast. I laughed and I cried buckets! Why is it ending? It's an absolute crime to take this amazing show away. Gill Tipping Stoke on Trent
I brought this as a present for my mums birthday as we are les miserables fans and wanted to see miss Saigon before it closed. We were not let down. From the start it was amazing. The set was spectacular. The cast are so talented. Was pleased to see most of the main cast there at the matinee as sometimes they are not and they were outstanding. Everyone must see it before it closes. Take tissues as I cried about 5 times
Very glad to have seen before its closure. Scenery spectacular and cast fantastic.
Absolutely fantastic, actors were amazing, music beautiful and scenery genius. Definitely reccommend
The show was fantastic. Didn't know what to expect but wow is all I can say. Powerful, professional show.
Only one word needed. FANTASTIC
From beginning to the end this show was fabulous. Words do not do it justice, the actors were amazing and truly captured the story. The actors who playef Chris, Kim and The engineer were amazing , John's vocal was awesome... would recommend to anyone. .
Amazing amazing amazing! Seriously amazing! Extremely intense with a great Vietnamese style Elvis/artful dodger character to break up the tension! Best scene was the helicopter.. FX were incredible I believed there was a helicopter flying above me! However I hated the ending it made me angry and emotional! Well unexpected! Never have I left a performance emotionally drained and gutted about an ending! Fab!! Well done!
Great talented cast. Loved the helicopter!
