Miss Saigon Return Dates Announced
Date Posted: 27/08/13
Dates for the return of legendary musical Miss Saigon to London's West End have been announced.
The show, which made its debut in 1989, will play at the Prince Edward Theatre from May 3rd next year. Tickets go on sale September 9th, leaving fans with plenty of time to plan theatre breaks in the capital.
Based on Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly, Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary musical made its mark 25 years ago at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, winning two Olivier Awards during its ten-year run.
A tale of romance between an American GI and Kim, a 17-year-old orphan, the classic love story is set amid the final days of the American occupation of Saigon in 1975.
Speaking about the show's much-anticipated return to the West End, producer Cameron Mackintosh said the timing was right to bring back the show now that Jersey Boys has moved to a more intimate theatre
"Of all my shows Miss Saigon is probably the one I have the most requests to bring back. For some years I have been waiting for the perfect theatre to house the new production," he said.
Performances of Miss Saigon run at the Prince Edward Theatre until October 25th 2014.
