Miss Saigon Certainly Landed Last Night

I was very excited to attend the opening of Miss Saigon last night which is one of my all time favourite musicals.

The booking period has been extended until next April with producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh saying he has already recouped his 4.5 million budget,

The atmosphere in the Prince Edward was electric I lost count of the number of curtain calls the very talented and hard working cast took.

I was particularly pleased to see Simon Bowman who was the original Chris there,  and also Jonathan Pryce who still is to me the definitive Engineer.  Anyone would be hard pushed to follow these two with Bowman's vulnerability in the role and Pryce's charisma.

Well worth going to see as it has been a long time returning to the West End and well worth the wait in my opinion.
