Acclaimed theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh has announced principal casting details for his forthcoming new production of Miss Saigon which arrives in London’s West End next May.
Set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon, Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary musical 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 night club 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. That night will change their lives forever.
The international cast includes Jon Jon Briones as ‘The Engineer’, Eva Noblezada as ‘Kim’, Alistair Brammer as ‘Chris’, Tamsin Carroll as ‘Ellen’, Hugh Maynard as ‘John’ and Rachelle Ann Go as ‘Gigi’.
Tickets went on sale in September and immediately broke records for the biggest single day of sales in West End and Broadway history.
