The musical was performed BEAUTIFULLY and I was very impressed with the staging and lighting. I was disappointed with the hologram helicopter, however. Not the same impact as even having a 1/2 or part of a real one on stage, especially considering that the helicopter is on the logo of Miss Saigon. Again, the actors were phenomenal and very happy with my overall PAC experiences.
Sorry... there are currently no upcoming events.
Miss Saigon on Tour
The latest touring production of Miss Saigon evolved out of West End and Broadway revivals celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Tony Award–winning musical's 1989 London debut. Arriving amid fevered conversations around the topic of immigration, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg's translation of Puccini's 1904 opera Madama Butterfly to the Vietnam War is timelier than ever. The French playwrights' extravagant "popera," conceived between their celebrated Les Misérables and Martin Guerre, has aged equally well on an artistic level. Director Laurence Connor brings realism and immediacy — and, of course, a scene-stealing helicopter — to this tense and tender tale of a Vietnamese mother who chooses to make the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of her son.
About Miss Saigon
Miss Saigon begins on April 29, 1975, the night before the United States essentially ends the Vietnam War by surrendering South Vietnam's capital city. The colorfully amoral pimp, fixer and survivor known as the Engineer (Red Concepción) sells the poor yet virtuous country girl Kim (Emily Bautista) to an American soldier (Anthony Festa), who is forced to abandon her after a night of passion. Three years later, Chris, now married, reunites with Kim and their child in Bangkok.
Reviewing the show's 1991 Broadway debut, New York Times critic Frank Rich lauded Miss Saigon's lush melodies and praised it as "a gripping entertainment of the old school (specifically, the Rodgers and Hammerstein East-meets-West school of South Pacific and The King and I)." With its revival, audiences can again swoon to gorgeous ballads like "You Will Not Touch Him" and "If You Want to Die in Bed," which reflect Kim's transformation from a naive victim of circumstance into a steely conduit of fearless maternal resolve. The musical's contemporary relevance later reaches its apex in "The American Dream," in which the Engineer fantasizes about the supersized life he will lead when he finally moves to America, where the Vietnam War's lessons are still being learned.
I love Miss Saigon and it’s portrayal of the fall of Saigon. It was a bit intense for my 9 yr old granddaughter, but she learned a lot
Miss Saigon was performed beautifully. A time in US history that continues to need healing. A challenging powerful theme delivered with finesse.
Acting and music were good...therefore the one star !!! Subject matter was ok.....how our Americans were portrayed was a slap in the face to all who served in Vietnam.... We were shocked and dismayed at another slap in the face aimed at them !!! WOULD NOT recommend to anyone !!
Wasn’t exactly what I expected. But was entertaining. Glad I didn’t take my daughter to the show... subject matter was a lil more geared towards adults.
AMAZING singing! I couldn't believe how powerful their voices were and completely in tune with the full orchestra. I've attended many musicals and this is within my top 2 performances of all time. Incredibly talented cast and truly made you feel apart of the story.
We had seen Miss Saigon at the Roosevelt Theater in Chicago several years ago and were expecting a similar wonderful experience. The wonderful music was the same, but the opening scene was updated to be far more bawdy than expected or desired. This group eliminated the emotional scene where Chris tried so valiantly to get Kim out of Viet Nam but was unable to do so. I felt that was an integral part of the story that was missed in this production. Consequently, if I were not familiar with the story ahead of time, I think that it would have been very difficult to follow.
This was a last minute decision that did disappoint! Show was awesome and so were the seats!
Love the story line! Beautiful voices! My granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed Miss Saigon!
I was very impressed by this production. All the actors were amazing and the stage special effects and scene changes were impressive, especially the way they did the helicopter scene! I really like this venue as even sitting further back, it was more like stadium sitting so I didn't have to lean over to see past the person in front of me.
