Alistair Brammer will recreate his London performance as young American GI Chris in Cameron Mackintosh’s January 2017 Broadway revival of the musical Miss Saigon.

He joins his previously announced West End co-stars Eva Noblezada, who plays Kim, and Jon Jon Briones, who plays the Engineer, in Alan Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony-winning musical.

Brammer starred in the West End as Marius in Les Misérables and in the film version of the musical as Jean Prouvaire. Other theatre credits include Billy in War Horse (West End), Follies (Royal Albert Hall), Billy in Taboo (Brixton Club House), and the Les Miserables 25th anniversary concert.

Previews for Miss Saigon begin March 1 at the Broadway Theatre (1681 Broadway) prior to an official opening March 23.

Laurence Connor will direct the cast, which also includes Katie Rose Clarke as Ellen, Nicholas Christopher as John, Devin Ilaw as Thuy, and Rachelle Ann Go (also from the London production) as Gigi.

Miss Saigon will play a limited engagement through January 14, 2018, before launching a North American tour later in the year.

The musical, according to press notes, “tells the story of young bar girl named Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with Chris, an American GI—but their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon.”

Miss Saigon has music by Schönberg with lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr. and Boublil, adapted from original French lyrics by Boublil, with additional lyrics by Michael Mahler. The new production is directed by Connor with musical staging by Bob Avian and additional choreography by Geoffrey Garratt. Production design is by Totie Driver and Matt Kinley, based on an original concept by Adrian Vaux; costume design is by Andreane Neofitou; lighting design is by Bruno Poet; sound design is by Mick Potter; and orchestrations are by William David Brohn.
