Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Boublil & Schonberg’s legendary musical has knocked out audiences in London and on Broadway for over ten years and he is bringing the full spectacular original production, using the original set, as designed by John Napier to Birmingham where it will be one of the largest and most spectacular shows ever staged.
Miss Saigon first premiered at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane I September 1989. Since then it has become the third most profitable musical in the history of British theatre, grossing more than £150 million. It has been performed in 11 countries in 7 different languages, has grossed more than £700 million worldwide and won 29 awards.
Set in 1975 during the final days leading up to the American evacuation of Saigon, Miss Saigon is an epic love story about the relationship between an American G.I. and a young Vietnamese woman.
Written by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg – who also collaborated on the phenomenally successful Les Miserables.
