Miss Saigon confirms West End closure

Cameron Mackintosh has confirmed that the West End revival of Boublil and Schönberg’s musical Miss Saigon will close at the Prince Edward Theatre on Saturday 27th February 2016.

Mackintosh said today ‘"I'm delighted to announce a final extension of my hugely successful new production of Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre.

"This record-breaking and award-winning production is already repeating its success in Japan and Korea and is planned to open in Germany, Australia and Broadway in the next two years. Our original stars Eva Noblezada and Jon Jon Briones continue to lead our wonderful international cast that has made this epic love story one of the greatest contemporary musicals of all time."

Miss Saigon returned to the West End in May 2014 with record-breaking advance bookings. The show tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with an American GI called Chris - but their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon.

The cast currently includes Jon Jon Briones as ‘The Engineer’, Eva Noblezada as ‘Kim’, Chris Peluso as ‘Chris’, Siobhan Dillon as ‘Ellen’, Hugh Maynard as ‘John’, Sangwoong Jo as ‘Thuy’ and Natalie Mendoza as ‘Gigi’. 

The cast is completed by: Michael Carolan; Richard Carson; Natalie Chua; Callum Evans; Maria Graciano; Nathan Graham; Simon Hardwick; Kurt Kansley; Sooha Kim; Kittiphun Kittipakapom; Aaron Lee Lambert; David Kar-Hing Lee; Mitch Leow; Ela Lisondra; Michael Macalintal; Tanya Manalang; Christian Rey Marbella; Liam Marcellino; Kanako Nakano; Thao Therese Nguyen; Saori Oda; Claire Parrish; Kiel Payton; Ethan Le Phong; Katherine Picar; Romeo Salazar; Ariel Reonal; Jon Reynolds; Marsha Songcome; Eloisa Amalia Tan; Gavin Tsang; Thao Vilayvong; Amadeus Williams; Gerald Zarcilla and Yuval Zoref.

According to Baz Bamigboye, Disney's musical adaptation of Aladdin will open at the Prince Edward Theatre later in 2016.
