Get ready for a musical blockbuster like no other. Currently taking over Her Majesty's Theatre for a strictly limited season, Miss Saigon is a breathtaking production that stands as a true testament to the enduring power and influence of theatrical storytelling. Since its electrifying debut in 1989, Miss Saigon has captivated audiences globally, sweeping across stages with its relentless charm, consistently earning accolades and awards.

Drawing inspiration from the timeless Madama Butterfly, Miss Saigon unfolds an epic love story, weaving a tapestry of deep passion, gripping heartbreak and unyielding love. These productions, while both telling deeply moving tales of love and loss, offer distinct experiences. While Madama Butterfly is set against the serene backdrop of Japan, Miss Saigon plunges its audience into the heart of the turbulent and emotionally charged landscape of Saigon during the final, intense moments of the Vietnam War and its haunting aftermath. Prepare to be spellbound by a show that not only entertains but also resonates deeply with its powerful storytelling.

Cameron Mackintosh's acclaimed new production of Miss Saigon brings this grand love story vividly to life, showcasing his renowned ability to captivate audiences, as seen in his previous world-famous musicals, including Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, and Mary Poppins. It's not just a performance; it's an experience, an opportunity to witness Boublil and Schönberg's soaring musical score being masterfully executed by a knockout ensemble of triple threats.

Having had its Melbourne debut at Her Majesty's Theatre on Sunday, October 29, Miss Saigon will run until Saturday, December 16 — the Australasian cast includes the debut of Abigail Adriano as Kim alongside Nigel Huckle (Les Misérables, West Side Story) as Chris, Sean Miley Moore (The Voice) as The Engineer, Kerrie Anne Greenland (Les Misérables) as Ellen, Nick Afoa (The Lion King) as John and the Australian debut of Laurence Mossman as Thuy.

Miss Saigon runs until Saturday, December 16, at Her Majesty's Theatre. For more information and to book tickets, visit the website.
