The year is 1975, just before the Fall of Saigon. The place is Dreamland, a sleazy nightclub. All eyes are on Kim, a 17-year-old orphan forced to take a job dancing for G.I.s stationed abroad during the Vietnam War. Fortunately, one of those pairs of eyes belongs to be the upstanding sergeant Chris, and love blooms. But their young romance is threatened by circumstances beyond their control, as Chris is called back to America just as the Viet Cong take Kim's city. Before he does, he leaves Kim with the hope that he will be back to rescue her—a hope that might prove crueler than no hope at all.
Based on Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly and written by the team behind Les Misérables, Miss Saigon's soulful story and songs earned the musical multiple Tony nominations and led it to became one of the longest-running productions on Broadway. Emotion shines through in every number, from the soaring lament of "Why, God, Why?" to the chilling urgency of "The Fall of Saigon." Combined with a set that spans the globe and a staged helicopter escape, Miss Saigon combines jaw-dropping spectacle with an emotional core that could draw tears from even the most theater-averse of rocks.
California Theatre of the Performing Arts
A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater’s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
