The West End classic returns to the capital from 2014 under the stewardship of the talented Laurence Connor. Miss Saigon was a runaway hit upon its original run at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and audiences will be eager to get in line to witness its reappearance, which occurs 25 years since its premiere in 1989.

It is one of the most successful musicals to emerge in recent decades, attracting a large audience and enthralling everyone that fills the auditorium. It is therefore no wonder that this Laurence Olivier and Tony Award winning production returns for an anticipated run where a new generation of theatregoers can view the plot unfold.

Taking its cues from Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Miss Saigon takes us back to a dramatic period of history – in particular the US occupation of Saigon during the Vietnam War. It is against this war-ravaged backdrop that we are submerged into a compelling romantic story between an American GI named John and a Vietnamese club worker called Kim. John begins by paying for her services but eventually their meeting eventually leads to something more, all whilst Kim continues to work at a club owned by the likable but morally questionable man known as The Engineer.

Director Laurence Connor has previously brought Miss Saigon to the stage in 2005 when he helmed a touring version, though he has also directed a wealth of other well known west end shows. These have included The Phantom of the Opera At The Royal Albert Hall – the 25th anniversary concert of the well known hit musical – plus touring versions of Oliver! and Jesus Christ Superstar. Connor has also worked as an actor and this has ensured that his work has been seen all over the country.

So audiences will be clamouring for theatre tickets to see Miss Saigon as it returns to the stage alongside well known musical numbers such as The Morning Of The Dragon, I’d Give My Life To You and Fall Of Saigon, among others. It takes pride of place on a stage recently playing home to the West End version of Jersey Boys.

Miss Saigon runs at the Prince Edward Theatre in London’s world-famous West End from Saturday 3rd May 2014.
