More Information


A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In “Miss Saigon,” Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg (the creators of “Les Misérables”), along with Richard Maltby, Jr., bring Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly” to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit.  In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years make for one of the most compelling stories of modern theatre. An international sensation, “Miss Saigon” is an epic, daring show that is universal in its emotional power even as it deals with contemporary issues. Its sung-through pop-inflected score gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong pop singers an opportunity to shine, in show stopping numbers like “I Still Believe,” “Why God Why?” and “The American Dream.”
