The epic love story tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with American GI Chris – but their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon.
Shot in front of a live audience at the Prince Edward Theatre, this one-off screening gives fans around the UK the chance to enjoy the spectacular, sell-out event that was Miss Saigon’s 25th anniversary performance. Cinemagoers will also witness a special finale that sees the cast joined on stage by original cast members Jonathan Pryce, Lea Salonga and Simon Bowman.
Sir Cameron Mackintosh, producer of the musical and of the film, said: “The results were so astonishingly cinematic that it was decided that in order to create a unique cinematic/theatrical experience we would film some additional covering shots filmed in January 2016. As this was a filmed live performance, the orchestra and vocals were taken directly from the show’s sound system – one take and no overdubs! It was decided not to digitally remove the stage microphones to remind viewers this was a stage event rather than a film. Remarkably, the emotional performances of this wonderful cast in close-up seems entirely natural as if they were being shot for the cinema rather than being performed in a 1,700-seat theatre. The clarity of the sound and the sweeping music makes this passionate story even more intensely thrilling and moving on the screen.”
