Miss Saigon, the long-running Boubil-Schonberg musical, will celebrate its eighth anniversary on Broadway April 11 at the Broadway Theater and enter its ninth year of performances the following day.
In its eight-year run, Miss Saigon has become the eighth longest running musical in Broadway history -- and will reach a total of 3,341 performances on the April 11 anniversary date.
Also in the cast are four original company members who have been with the show since 1991: Alan Ariano, Francis J. Cruz, Sylvia Dohi and Ray Santos.
When Miss Saigon first opened, reviews were mixed, and the show itself was almost overshadowed by a controversy over casting Englishman Jonathan Pryce as the Eurasian engineer. Pryce stayed on and won a Tony, though soon thereafter the show's leads and ensemble would become more ethnically diverse.
