Theatre Alliance to perform Miss Saigon

 Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg; Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. 
Original French Lyrics by Alain Boublil; Additional Material by Richard Maltby, Jr. 

"A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In Miss Saigon, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg (the creators of Les Misérables), along with Richard Maltby, Jr., bring Puccini’s Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war. 
In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. 

An international sensation, Miss Saigon is an epic, daring pop opera that is universal in its emotional power even as it deals with controversial, contemporary issues. Its sung-through pop-inflected score gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong pop singers an opportunity to shine in showstopping numbers like “I Still Believe,” “Why God Why?” and “The American Dream.” 

Raw and uncompromising, Miss Saigon is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad. Breaking several Broadway records, including advance-ticket sales at $24 million, and running for nearly 10 years, Miss Saigon remains the twelfth longest-running Broadway show. 

"A triumphantly vibrant, courageous work of musical theater." - Chicago Tribune 
"One of the most richly melodious scores heard in two decades." - Gannett Newspapers 

The Theatre Alliance production is directed by Jamie Lawson and musically directed by David Lane. The cast features Susan Boyoung Bailey as Kim, David Joy as Chris, Sylvester Allen as John, and Gray Smith as the Engineer.
