One of London's favourite musicals Miss Saigon brings its epic love story, set during the Vietnam war, back to the West End.
This musical relocates the "Madame Butterfly" story to Saigon in the last days of the Vietnam War. An American soldier has a torrid but brief love affair with a Vietnamese girl, Kim. They are separated in the fall of Saigon. Thinking Kim dead, Chris returns home to marry an American. But Kim begins an odyssey to escape her Communist homeland and reunite with the man she's sure is waiting for her--and their son. Kim is accompanied on each step of her journey by a man called the Engineer, a Eurasian who will stop at virtually nothing to achieve his twisted version of the American Dream.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
