I'm sorry if this sounds really stupid, but is this partly cast ?? Did i read about auditions already having taken place for this outside the UK?

Auditions took place in November last year in Manila for the Vietnamese characters. I know they have 3 Kims, Rachelle Ann Go, Frencheska Farr and Aicelle Santos and one will be principal and the other two the 1st and 2nd understudies. Since I read about actresses auditioning for Gigi they'll probably have someone in mind for her, and the auditions called for men so they should have a Thuy plus some ensemble, and maybe an Engineer. As for the American characters and ensemble I don't know, but I imagine they'll put casting calls out for dancers in the next few months.
Seen:
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (UK tour, Wolverhampton), RENT 20th Anniversary Concert (Stoke-on-Trent), Evita (UK tour, Wolverhampton), Wicked (London), The Commitments (London), Les Miserables (London), Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (UK tour, Birmingham)

I agree. I love that melody. There's a clip on the 'making of' DVD where they originally had alternative lyrics  I think.
This new song just seems a rehash of the same sentiments expressed in 'Now That...'

They've been auditioning for Kim since last November, Newsies started auditions on Monday but that's opening a bit earlier than Miss Saigon

Such an early audition.  So many actors have commitments in place already.  I would wager though that the male leads who are auditioning for Chris would not be a cattle call and would already have a reputation.

After the success of the "Les Mis" film, has anybody heard any more re Cam Mac wanting to do the same for "Miss Saigon"?
