The touching Broadway musical and international sensation Miss Saigon runs at Drury Lane Oakbrook. Set in 1975 in the days before Saigon’s fall to Communist forces at the end of the Vietnam War, Miss Saigon is the epic love-story of an American GI, Chris, played by Kevin Vortmann, and a young Vietnamese woman, Kim, played by Melinda Chua Smith (who starred in the Broadway, German and both national touring companies of Miss Saigon) and Katie Boren during matinee performances. Rachel Rockwell will direct the musical, which has been seen by over 30 million people in 25 countries worldwide.
The Tony award winning musical Miss Saigon is the story of a romance between Chris, an American Marine serving as an Embassy guard in the days before the American evacuation of Saigon, and Kim, a young Vietnamese woman orphaned by the war and forced to work in a Saigon night club. In this modern adaptation of Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly, Kim and Chris have a brief but passionate affair and he vows to take her out of Saigon. On the evening of the largest helicopter evaculation in history, the two are separated and Chris is forced leave Vietnam without his love. Three years after the war’s end the two struggle to deal with the emotional aftermath of their affair while moving on with new lives. Chris, now married, discovers that he has a young son with Kim, while Kim clings to the hope that she and Chris will be reunited and raise their son together as an American boy. Featuring a beloved score, Miss Saigon includes the songs “The Heat is On in Saigon”, "Why God, Why?, “Bui Doi” and “The American Dream”.
