Manila, Philippines--Prior to its limited release at select SM Cinemas across the Philippines this weekend, MISS SAIGON 25th-anniversary performance in cinemas had a special advance screening at the Director's Club Cinema, S Maison-Mall of Asia last Wednesday, November 9. MISS SAIGON Australia's original star Joanna Ampil and producer Cameron Mackintosh's representative in Manila Dong Alegre graced the occasion.

Also spotted were MISS SAIGON 25th-anniversary alums Ariel Reonal and Ela Lisondra, veteran stage actor Bernardo Bernando, and Philippine Stagers Foundation President Vince Tañada.

MISS SAIGON 25th-anniversary performance in cinemas was recorded live in London's West End, which features special appearances from original cast members Jonathan Pryce, Lea Salonga, and Simon Bowman, among others. It also features performances from new cast members Jon Jon Briones as The Engineer, Eva Noblezada as Kim, Alistair Brammer as Chris, Rachelle Ann Go as Gigi, Kwang-Ho Hong as Thuy, Hugh Maynard as John, and Tamsin Carroll as Ellen.

The film screens at SM Cinemas on Saturday, November 12, and Sunday, November 13, only.

Participating SM Cinemas include Aura, Bacoor, Bacolod, BF Paranaque, Cagayan de Oro, Calamba, Cebu, Cebu Seaside, Davao Lanang, Fairview, General Santos, Iloilo, Mall of Asia, Mall of Asia S'Maison, Manila, Marikina, Megamall, North EDSA, Pampanga Clark, San Lazaro, Southmall, and Santa Rosa.

"Remarkably, the emotional performances of this wonderful cast in close-up seem entirely natural as if they were being shot for the cinema rather than being performed in a 1,700-seat theatre. The clarity of the sound and the sweeping music makes this passionate story even more intensely thrilling and moving on the screen," said Mackintosh in a statement.

On Broadway, MISS SAIGON, directed by Laurence Connor, will return to its original home, the Broadway Theatre, next year, March 23. It will play a limited engagement through January 14, 2018, before launching a North American tour.

MISS SAIGON has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg with lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr. and Alain Boublil, adapted from original French lyrics by Alain Boublil, with additional lyrics by Michael Mahler. It also features musical staging by Bob Avian and additional choreography by Geoffrey Garratt. Production design is by Totie Driver and Matt Kinley based on an original 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.
