It's a shame they couldn't create a new image. Same with Oliver.. Just seems lazy.
I don't know why anyone would create a new logo - it's iconic, and part of the show.  Nothing to do with laziness, much more to do with good business sense and history!

This logo is part of the iconic feel and success of the show.  I'm glad they kept it.

I'm crossing my fingers for David Bedella as The Engineer.

I think if they truly want it to be fresh and relevant to a new audience... They should totally re design the old l

Logos... But seeing as both this and Oliver are them making an easy buck I'm not surprised.

I do think the Saigon logo has aged much better than the Oliver one saying that.

If it aint broke dont fix it, especially when its your brand. Theyd be stupid to change something so iconic as it could damage the branding, not good business sense. Especially if they cant come up with anything better. id say the logos themselves are timeless, its the artwork as a whole that dates. The original Miss Saigon poster in solid block colour looks so dated now which is why i really like the new warmer and deeper background. The same with Lea Mis moving on from the grey background. And Phantom, no matter what they do with the artwork the mask stays. Camerons/Dewyntera branding of musicals is genius

Don't know a lot about Miss Saigon as I was a bit young last time it was in the West End but have been looking into it to see what it's all about and I'm really excited to see it- sounds just up my street!

I love the soundtrack clips I've heard! Can I add another name to the mix for Chris- Mark Evans. From the clips I've heard I think he'd be brilliant!

I don't think you could get anyone able to give this song better justice  than Gareth Gates. Think he would be perfect for the part.
