Miss Saigon Revival Is Happening
Posted 03 September 2013 - 01:49 PM
Listening to the OLC again. One of my favourites. I'm not sure if these lyrics are inspired, clunky, in poor taste, or all 3:
(from "Let Me See His Western Nose")
With these two little diamonds to bait
I'll book us a cruise - "Boat-people"
Don't worry 'bout the sharks out in the
The pirates taking us are more scary any

Did you phone the BO for a logges? Ive never been able to figure out how to book them online as they dont come up on the seating plan.
As opposed to clicking on the images of the different areas, use the drop-down box where it says Block and the option for 'Boxes & Loges' should be there

The set is very "realistic" - more compact, but darker, with small crowded houses and streets. You can almost "feel" how poor the people are. It is difficult to explain, but I was *very* impressed with this production. Although I love the original one, I actually prefer the new version!
Sets still roll on and off stage, the Cadillac is still there, in fact, the only thing that is missing are the "curtains" at the sides of the stage and the "real" chopper.
The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there were projected cartoons on the background during American Dream.
The chopper is a projection, but the effect is really cool. The surround sound of the blades was so loud I almost bounced out of my seat. Definately still a showstopper!
For those who want to see what it looks like:
