SYNOPSIS

Miss Saigon is an epic, stunning adaptation of Puccini’s opera, Madame Butterfly, by the writers behind Les Miserables. Reframing Puccini’s story by setting it during the Vietnam War, Miss Saigon is a powerful and poignant tale of love in a war-torn country. In the dangerous days before Saigon’s fall in 1975, Chris — an American GI — and Kim — a destitute Vietnamese orphan working her first night as a prostitute — — fall in love. When the city falls, the lovers are forced apart, and each must find their own way, alone. When, years later, Chris is able to return to Vietnam, he brings with him an American wife. Kim, who has waited for Chris, has raised their son, Tam, who is “bui-doi”– a term for a child conceived during the horrors of war. With so much devastation behind them, Kim and Chris must decide how to move forward. Miss Saigon is a tragedy of massive proportions: passionate, profound, and heart-wrenchingly honest. With a sung-through score and tour-de-force roles for actors, Miss Saigon is a theatrical experience that will stay with you for years to come.

  1. Hi my name is Paul Reid and I would love to be the stage manager for this show. I am completely obsessed with Miss Saigon and I will be completely and utterly professional my entire time their. Please ask the director if this position is still open or if I could just have the directors email so I can email him myself. Being stage manager for this show would be the dream of a lifetime
