And it's cookin'
21 October 1998 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

This video shows the making of what I think is the best stage musical ever, it shows the work taken to put on a modern musical with the performances, tempers, problems and even dangers you would not necessarily associate with the "Theatre". The original cast are still the best and this video gives you a chance for the next best thing to seeing them perform the roles live....Long run Miss Saigon and I can't wait for Miss Saigon - the Movie hint hint.
