The Broadway revival of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Miss Saigon opens March 23 at the Broadway Theatre.
Produced by Cameron Mackintosh, this new staging is directed Laurence Connor. Miss Saigon has music by Schönberg with lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr. and Boublil, adapted from original French lyrics by Boublil, with additional lyrics by Michael Mahler.
This new revival—which comes to Broadway after a 2014 London run—stars Eva Noblezada as Kim, Alistair Brammer as Chris, Jon Jon Briones as The Engineer, and Rachelle Ann Go as Gigi, each of whom originated their roles in London. The principal cast also features Katie Rose Clarke as Ellen, Nicholas Christopher as John, and Devin Ilaw as Thuy. Lianah Sta. Ana plays the role of Kim at certain performances.
