Speaking to the announcement of the Singapore season Cameron Mackintosh said, “I’m absolutely  thrilled to be bringing my spectacular new production of Miss Saigon to Singapore. Without doubt, it  is the best production of Saigon I have ever produced in Asia. I can’t envisage another show of this  scale being done in Singapore for the foreseeable future”. 

Chantal Prudhomme, Chief Executive Officer of Base Entertainment Asia said, “We are delighted to  be working with Cameron Mackintosh, whose creative influence on the world of musical theatre has  been unparalleled. It is not often that we come across an international musical with such a compelling  Asian perspective. Miss Saigon stands out as an epic story about love, loss and resilience that  transcends borders and connects with audiences all across the world. At every performance of this  production, audiences will witness why Miss Saigon has carved its way into theatrical history”. 

Miss Saigon tells the story of a young Vietnamese woman named Kim, who is orphaned by war and  forced to work in a bar run by a notorious character known as the Engineer. There she meets and falls  in love with an American G.I. named Chris, but they are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. For 3 years,  Kim goes on an epic journey of survival to find her way back to Chris, who has no idea he has fathered  a son. This new production features a sensational cast and an unforgettable score, including classic hits  like The Heat is On in Saigon, The Movie in My Mind, Last Night of the World and American Dream
