Set during the final days before the American evacuation of Saigon in 1975, ‘Miss Saigon’ is a story about an American G.I., Chris, and a young Vietnamese woman, Kim, who fall in love, just as their world is falling apart around them.
This production is directed by Laurence Connor, with music by Claude-Michel Schönberg and lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr and Alain Boublil, adapted from the original French lyrics by Alain Boublil with additional lyrics by Michael Mahler. Tony Award winner Lea Salonga originated the role of Kim in the West End and on Broadway.
