The legendary musical Miss Saigon arrives at The Palace Theatre, Manchester, next week.

The curtain rises on the show on March 21 with the production set to run until May 12.

Since the London premiere in 1989, Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s musical has become one of the most loved and successful in history.

The original Broadway production of Miss Saigon opened on April 11, 1991 and became the largest advance sale in Broadway history.

The production went on to play for nearly ten years and 4,063 performances have been seen by more than 5.9 million people.

Miss Saigon has been performed in 28 countries, over 300 cities in 15 different languages and has won over 40 awards, including two Olivier Awards, three Tony Awards, and four Drama Desk Awards and seen by over 35 million people worldwide.

Miss Saigon is renowned as being the epic love story of our time and features the last days of the Vietnam War.

The story centres on Kim, who is only 17 years old and is forced to work in a Saigon bar managed by a notorious character known as the Engineer.

Kim falls in love with Chris, an American GI, but the fall of Saigon separates them. The storyline follows Kim as she pursues an epic journey of survival to find Chris who has no idea that he has fathered a son.
