A reworking of Madam Butterfly. Miss Saigon is ultimately a tragedy.

Chris, an American GI just before the US withdrawal from Vietnam meets Kim in a Saigon bar. She is a young innocent girl who has lost her family. Now she is fresh meat in her first night as a bar girl. The joint is run by the manager called the Engineer.

All the women in the bar are scantily clad prostitutes, hoping that a GI will marry them and take them to America where they promise to be good wives. Even the Engineer wants the American dream.

Chris falls in love with Kim but he has to abandon her when the US troops withdraw. Some years later he discovers that Kim had his child.

Eva Noblezada and other female cast members reach some high notes. However I did not think that the songs were that great or the story so enthralling.

The original musical was well known for its staging of a helicopter scene. It does not shy away from its rude subject matter. A sex bar where women are exploited, all they want to do is escape.

The 25th anniversary show has a segment where the original stars appear. Jonathan Pryce jokes that he has been let out from the museum. Lea Salonga is still beautiful as ever and still has a great voice.

Maybe this is a musical that is better to watch on the stage. It loses its immediacy on the screen however wonderfully it has been filmed.
