Following the announcement that Miss Saigon will be screened in Australia on 14th October and in the UK on 15th October, it has been confirmed that the recording of the 25th anniversary will be screened in U.S. cinemas on 22nd September 2016.
After being screened around the world, Miss Saigon: The 25th Anniversary Performance is expected to become avaliable for purchase (details to be confirmed). The show will be screened in the U.S. ahead of being revived on Broadway.
The majority of the footage was captured during the musical's 25th anniversary gala at the Prince Edward Theatre as well as from the show's final performance. The special 25th anniversary gala finale featuring original cast members will also be included.
The cast includes Eva Noblezada as Kim, Jon Jon Briones as the Engineer, Alistair Brammer as Chris, Hugh Maynard as John, Tamsin Carroll as Ellen and Rachelle Ann Go as Gigi.

Next year Miss Saigon will return to the Broadway Theatre, the same theatre where the show made its New York premiere in 1991. Noblezada and Briones are set to reprise their performances as Kim and the Engineer from the recent West End revival. Miss Saigon opens on Broadway on 23rd March 2017 (previews from 1st March) for a limited run to 14th January 2018. The show will then embark on a U.S. tour.
