Cameron Mackintosh's new production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's epic musical has played in 300 cities in 15 different languages, winning awards around the world since the sensational record-breaking run at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane 25 years ago. This epic love story tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with an American GI called Chris--but their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil (the writers of Les Miserables) recently wrote a powerful new song for the role of Ellen to sing in the second act, which has been included in the recent Dutch and Japanese productions and will make its UK premiere in London.
Miss Saigon has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg with lyrics by Richard Maltby Jnr and Alain Boublil, adapted from original French yyrics by Alain Boublil with additional lyrics by Michael Malher. This new production will be directed by Laurence Connor with musical staging by Bob Avian and additional choreography by Geoffrey Garratt, production design by Totie Driver and Matt Kinley, based on an oiginal Concept by Adrian Vaux, costume design by Andreane Neofitou, lighting design by Bruno Poet, sound design by Mick Potter and orchestrations by William David Brohn.
