FLASH SPECIAL: Will LES MISERABLES Lead To MISS SAIGON Onscreen For Mackintosh In 2013? The Heat Is On!FLASH SPECIAL: Will LES MISERABLES Lead To MISS SAIGON Onscreen For Mackintosh In 2013? The Heat Is On!
by Pat Cerasaro - Dec 29, 2012

With the resounding success of the page-to-stage-to-screen adaptation of LES MISERABLES in movie theaters this week - having already grossed more than $100 million since its Christmas Day debut, the biggest ever opening in movie musical history - the eyes of many entertainment enthusiasts are on mega-producer Cameron Mackintosh for what he will do next as a follow-up, as the box office receipts begin to pile up. More than a merely spurious notion, his next project seems to be set in stone should LES MIZ journey on to mega-hit movie musical status (and it very well might) - according to Mackintosh in a recent promotional interview, if the film version of LES MIZ actually breaks the half-billion mark he will indeed proceed to produce a film adaptation of another Boublil/Schonberg hit mega-musical from the 1980s that he originally presented to the world - the Vietnam-set, MADAME BUTTERFLY-inspired MISS SAIGON. While the film adaptation of LES MISERABLES virtually has set a new standard insofar as the realism and grittiness achievable in a modern movie musical - coming particularly as a result of the entirely live, onset singing; as well as the extended, extreme POV shots and overall minimal artifice - MISS SAIGON touches upon much more recent history and thus explores themes and topics much closer to home for many of us, to say nothing of the story, which largely concerns an American GI and his doomed romance with a bar girl in the last days of Saigon before it falls and Ho Chi Minh City rises. Then, there is the seedy and slimy Engineer who sets the wheels in motion and greases up the cogs of the dramatic motor on more than one occasion - and stops the show for a knock-out fantasy sequence before the final denouement, too. The casting possibilities for the four central male roles - The Engineer, Chris, John (his friend) and Thuy (Kim's cousin) - provide unique and compelling roles for the more capable singing actors amongst the vastly talented flock on Broadway and Hollywood who could potentially more than fill the fatigues and fill out the leisure suits or uniforms necessary for those roles, but what about the titular leading lady? Well, Mackintosh apparently has already got that covered - as BroadwayWorld reported, as a matter of fact - since auditions have apparently already begun in one form or another, with preliminary auditions being held for the role of Kim in Manila, Philippines, just a few weeks ago, though that was reportedly exclusively for a future theatrical mounting (a 2014 West End revival, perhaps?). Thanks to the boffo box office of LES MIZ, MISS SAIGON could very well arrive just in time for Christmas 2013 if all goes well, so now is just as good a time to speculate on the logistics as any until we know more. The heat is on! (more...)
