"Gripping entertainment." - The New York Times

"A triumphantly vibrant, courageous work of musical theater." - Chicago Tribune

"One of the most richly melodious scores heard in two decades." - Gannett Newspapers

"Through a score that pulsates with passion and urgency, and with an invaluable assist by lyricist Richard Maltby, Jr., MISS SAIGON unfolds with a clarity and urgency that reaches deep inside and won't let go." - BroadwayWorld Boston

"Admired as much for its sheer spectacle as for its compelling story and passionate music." - The Examiner

MISS SAIGON premiered at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in the West End on September 20, 1989. It was directed by renowned British director Nicholas Hytner and starred Lea Salonga and Jonathan Pryce. The production closed ten years later on October 30, 1999 after more than 4,200 performances. The Broadway production ran at the Broadway Theatre from April 11, 1991 to January 28, 2001 and featured much of the original creative team and cast, including Salonga and Pryce. A current 25th anniversary West End revival is being planned for May 2014 at the Prince Edward Theatre. After the Broadway production closed, a tour launched across the UK with the original London staging, performing at the six largest venues in Britain and Ireland. When the tour closed in 2003, original producer Cameron Mackintosh developed the musical so it could be performed in smaller theaters. Another UK tour then launched with Mackintosh's idea at its forefront, going from July 2004 to June 2006. Tours across the United States have run from 1992 to 1995 and 2002 to 2005. Both tours have played such significant venues as the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
