From the creators of Les Miserables comes one of the epic stage productions of modern theatre. The riveting story of an American soldier that has fallen in love with a Vietnamese bargirl as the fall of Saigon is looming. Following a quick wedding and an evening of passion, the GI is forced to evacuate, pledging to return for his new bride. Years later, he learns his love escaped the country with their son he never knew…beginning a quest that will change everyone.
An emotionally-charged production, Miss Saigon is an experience filled with brilliant imagery, rich unforgettable orchestrations and lyrics, and a story that will pierce your being. Love, loss and the ultimate sacrifice…be a part of this remarkable production.
Rated PG-13 for adult themes and language.
Runtime: 2 hour 25 minutes – includes 15-minute intermission
