The Heat Is On: Miss Saigon Broadway Revival Set to Open in March


Look who's back in town! Miss Saigon, the smash 1989 musical from the minds of Les Misérables creators Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil that revolves around an ill-fated romance between a Vietnamese bar girl and American G.I. in the 1970s, will begin its Broadway revival in March. The production is moving from a successful run in London and will feature the same two leads: 20-year-old newcomer Eva Noblezada as Kim and seasoned vet Jon Jon Briones as the Engineer. The show's producer, Cameron Mackintosh, announced that the revival will be housed in the Broadway Theater, where the show began its original Broadway run in 1991. Mackintosh also noted that the limited production will only be running until January 2018, and will then tour throughout North America. Previews will begin on March 1, with opening night scheduled for March 23.
