Miss Saigon confirms first dates & venues for UK tour

First dates and venues have been announced for the upcoming UK tour of Miss Saigon by Boublil and Schönberg.

Following the show's recent West End revival, Miss Saigon will open at Leicester Curve on 3rd July before visiting the Birmingham Hippodrome, Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Wales Millennium Centre, Edinburgh Festival Theatre and Southampton Mayflower. Further dates and casting will be announced soon.

Producer Cameron Mackintosh says: "It’s hard to believe that it has been over 25 years since Miss Saigon first opened, but if anything, the tragic love story of the show has become even more relevant today. This new production, directed by Laurence Connor, takes a grittier, more realistic approach than the original production while still delivering the power and epic sweep of Boublil and Schönberg’s tremendous score. 

"Of all my shows, Miss Saigon is the one that I have received the most requests from the public to bring back. I am thrilled that audiences around the UK will get to see this tremendous new production that audiences and critics in London have embraced since it opened in 2014; which I am now taking to Broadway with its original West End stars opening next March at the Broadway Theatre. Audiences who can’t wait, will get a preview of the scale of this wonderful production at forthcoming screenings of the Miss Saigon 25th Anniversary Performance which was filmed live in London, in selected screens across the UK on 16 October.”
