CURVE TO OPEN CAMERON MACKINTOSH’S SPECTACULAR NEW PRODUCTION OF MISS SAIGON

Cameron Mackintosh Presents
Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary musical MISS SAIGON

Curve, Leicester
Monday 3 July – Saturday 22 July 2017
Press night: 12 July 2017 at 7pm

Curve is delighted to announce that Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production of Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary musical Miss Saigon – a recent smash hit in the West End – will embark on a major UK tour opening at Curve from Monday 3 July 2017.

Curve Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said: “We couldn’t be more pleased to be opening Cameron Mackintosh’s brand new production of Miss Saigon here at Curve. Following the success of Barnum and Mary Poppins, we are delighted Cameron has once again chosen Curve as the theatre to launch the tour of this iconic musical. Due to our exceptional building facilities and the expertise of our team, Curve is establishing itself as a destination theatre for the world’s best producers to come and open work. Opening Miss Saigon at Curve will be another fantastic opportunity for our audiences to experience world class theatre here in Leicester, before it goes out on national tour.”

Cameron Mackintosh said: “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.”

Miss Saigon will be opening at Curve Leicester from Monday 3 July – Saturday 22 July 2017, before playing Birmingham Hippodrome (26 July – 23 September 2017), Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin (4 October – 18 November 2017), Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff (29 November 2017 – 6 January 2018), Festival Theatre Edinburgh (17 January – 17 February 2018) and Mayflower Southampton (21 February – 17 March 2018). Tour schedule below, with further dates and casting to be announced soon.

The new London production of Miss Saigon opened in London in May 2014 to record-breaking advance sales and critical acclaim. Dominic Cavendish in The Daily Telegraph wrote, “This thrilling new production spills out beyond the theatre and speaks directly to the times we live in”. The show swept the board at the 2015 Whatsonstage.com awards winning a record breaking nine awards, the most awards ever won by a single show in the 15-year history of the awards including: Best West End Show and Best Revival of a Musical.

Miss Saigon 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 Claude-Michel Schönberg with lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr. and Alain Boublil, adapted from original French lyrics by Alain Boublil, with additional lyrics by Michael Mahler. The new production is directed by Laurence 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 by Andreane Neofitou; lighting design by Bruno Poet; sound design by Mick Potter; and orchestrations by William David Brohn.

Since its London premiere in 1989, Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s epic musical Miss Saigon has become one of the most successful musicals in history.  The original Broadway production of Miss Saigon opened on April 11, 1991 with what was the largest advance sale in Broadway history ($37 million).  The show went on to play for nearly ten years and 4,063 performances seen by more than 5.9 million people. Miss Saigon has been performed in 28 countries, over 300 cities in 15 different languages, has won over 40 awards including 2 Olivier Awards, 3 Tony Awards, and 4 Drama Desk Awards and been seen by over 35 million people worldwide.

Alfonso's Broadwayworld award on spanish national television "Tele 5"

Londres es un referente a nivel mundial en la danza o en el teatro. Y es precisamente aquí donde en este momento artistas españoles están siendo alabados por el público y también por la crítica. Es el caso de cuatros bailarines que protagonizan en la actualidad el clásico de Lewis Carroll "Alicia en el País de las Maravillas" en el impresionante escenario del Royal Opera House. Itziar Mendizábal, Laura Morera y Zenaida Yanowsky representan a la malvada Reina de Corazones y Ricardo Cervera hace el papel del excéntrico conejo blanco. Mientras estos artistas viven entregados en cuerpo y alma al Royal Ballet, una de las mejores compañías de danza del mundo, otro español, Alfonso Casado, ha sido galardonado recientemente con el premio al Mejor Director Musical del West End de Londres por "Miss Saigon", un musical que se representa en el teatro Prince Edward en pleno barrio del Soho.
