ABOUT THE SHOW
Set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon, Miss Saigon
is an epic love story about the relationship between an American GI and a young Vietnamese woman. Orphaned by war, 17-year-old Kim is forced to work as a bar girl in a sleazy Saigon nightclub, owned by a notorious wheeler-dealer known as "The Engineer." John, an American GI, buys his friend Chris the services of Kim for the night—a night that will change their lives forever.
The musical premiered in London in 1989
, and opened on Broadway two years later. The original production received 11 Tony nominations, winning three in the acting categories—for Jonathan Pryce, Lea Salonga, and Hinton Battle. This 25th anniversary production originally opened in London in 2014 before transferring to Broadway.
