LA MIRADA THEATRE FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS held its MISS SAIGON press opening last night, April 14. Below, see photos of stars Lawrence Cummings, Cassandra Murphy, Jacqueline Nguyen, Aidan Park and more at the event!

MISS SAIGON features music by Claude Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. & Alain Boublil, adapted from the original French lyrics by Alain Boublil, additional material by Richard Maltby, Jr., orchestrations by William D. Brohn.

This new production is choreographed by Dana Solimando, musical directed by John Glaudini and directed by La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Producing Artistic Director Brian Kite. MISS SAIGON runs through Sunday, May 6, 2012 at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, 14900 La Mirada Blvd in La Mirada.

The 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 and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war.

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 ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. Raw and uncompromising, MISS SAIGON is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.

La Mirada's cast features Lawrence Cummings as John, Joseph Anthony FORONDA as The Engineer, APRIL MALINA as Gigi, Cassandra Murphy as Ellen, JACQUELINE NGUYEN as Kim, Kevin Odekirk as Chris, AIDAN PARK as Thuy and KEN SHIM as Tam.
