Absolutely awesome. Singing and acting was phenomenal. Scenery and use of technology was spectacular. Wish seats were a little wider. Unfortunately we aren't all a size 10.

CHICAGO: WENT BACK FOR A SECOND SHOW!
This is one of my favorites since first seeing it 14+ years ago. I saw it last week with friends with Emily Bautista and today again with my mom and aunts with Myra Molloy. Both leads were fantastic! I was so moved by it last week that I had to make sure to share with my family before then end of the run. I laughed and cried a lot! I sat in the first two rows both performances and really appreciated all the emotion these actors brought both nights. There is more to it than the original, but I really enjoyed the changes. I do agree that the first scene is even more raunchy than remembered and was a bit shocked by the slight nudity, but it made it a bit more real and not just suggestive. Red Concepcion, the Engineer, is one talented dude! The entire cast is A+! It’s a must see!!! I saw it twice and loved it even more the second time this tour!

MISS SAIGON 2.0
I had the opportunity to see Miss Saigon at the Drury Lane theater in London back in 1997 and have fallen in love with the story and musical ever since. You might say I am Mister Saigon since that was my birthplace and my family of twelve escaped the Communists during the Fall of Saigon in April 1975. This musical is truly personal to me and I try to catch a national tour production every chance I get. I still have memories of boarding the helicopter as a five year old child leaving my homeland I barely knew. The musical version for the 25th anniversary tour is gritty, raunchy, contains some nudity both actual and implied and in the age of the me too movement it felt uncomfortable at times. However, this is an accurate depiction during the mid 70’s in Saigon so the show has nothing to apologize for. This is definitely not Disney’s Miss Saigon. Some parental discretion is truly advised. Also theater goers should read up a little on the historical perspective of the musical before going

I saw the matinee show on Saturday, October 13th and was absolutely astonished and mesmerized. From the moment the orchestra started playing the overture, I knew this was going to be a show of utmost quality. The cast was so talented and you could tell their hard work paid off because it was pure magic! Add the staging and set and wonderfully played music, and you have a production that will completely pull you in and sweep you off your feet. I cried a majority of the time. Emily Bautista, who plays Kim, definitely deserves some type of award for her performance. Honestly, bring Miss Saigon back to Broadway with this cast! They are absolutely magnificent! As for the family-friendly aspect of Miss Saigon, please do research beforehand on this show because it is a 14+ show (in my opinion). Do NOT bring younger children.

I've seen the production twice in New York and once in Philly. Loved it and will see it again. Great musical score and stage production. A child would have a difficult time following the story line. Whether you catch a matinee or evening show, don't forget to include a stop in one of Philly's great restaurants. You can't go wrong.

MISS SAIGON BROUGHT THE HEAT!
I want to preface by saying, Miss Saigon is my favorite musical so this may be a little biased. I sat front row on the right side and was eagerly awaiting the sound of the helicopter to signal the start of a phenomenal production. I was not disappointed! The staging and set design was breathtaking. Emily was an absolute POWERHOUSE! Her chemistry with Anthony was through the roof! I love the new production (thank you Cameron Mackintosh). I think the show feels much more real. My main disappointment was with the majority of the audience. You could tell there was no enthusiasm in the applause. This cast is performing a very emotional show and they are putting their all into it. I felt insulted for the cast by the lack of appreciation I felt from the audience. I was awestruck and this production will be held very fondly in my memory.

I saw the show opening night and highly recommend it. I have seen other productions and this was one of the best. Acting, singing were first rate. A great love story.
