ENGINEER, KNOW YOUR PLACE-DONT MAKE OTHERS LOSE FACE!

Like others, I have seen numerous versions of this show, I saw this one last night, it was great. There are many, good things to say about this show and some things I did not agree with. I hope Miss Saigon's production staff reads our comments and make notes of them. This show was visually spectacular. Brilliant costumes, lights, sets. While I thought the show amazing, there where choices that I, personally did not agree with. " Movie in my Mind" was sung as a gimmicky belt song when it required more heart, subtlety, nuance,. which basically sums up my concern with whole show, Some actors, many times, played emotions flat w/out any introspection." I am happy", "Sad" "I am angry, so I'm going to scream thru the song & lyrics"'. #2::: When hitting someone, use a sound effect with your hands. It looks fake w/out it; .And last, KIM should be the LAST one bowing, NOT the Engineer . This is KIM's journey about love and the sacrifice of MOTHERHOOD! Buddy, be the bigger man, step back!

IS IT ME OR THE SOUND SYSTEM?

We attended a matinee of Miss Saigon . The set was impressive. The orchestra was wonderful and we enjoyed the actors very much. The graphic sexuality at the beginning was somewhat off-putting however realistic it may have been. Particularly in the duets, the voices had wonderful range and blended beautifully, but we couldn't understand the words! We knew the story having seen it before, and the special effects were the best I've ever seen in this production, but if we could have heard the words more clearly we would have enjoyed it more. At this point, I don't think I would not recommend it.

I WANTED TO LIKE THIS TOUR - I REALLY DID

I will preface this review by stating that I've seen Miss Saigon in various places around the word since the early 1990s. I really wanted to like this production, but it just fell flat in so many respects. My biggest complaint - and I'm guessing this comes down to the direction - is that the performers seemed to lack a connection with the material they were performing. With the possible exception of Chris, most of them seemed bored. This is certainly problematic so early in a tour. Without that emotional depth and nuance, this is a show that can quickly become overly dramatic in a bad way since the underlying material is already so intense. That being said, this is a beautiful production technically. I will note that from where I was sitting (second row center in the main floor), the lyrics sounded extremely garbled. Overall, I would skip this production. This may be a difficult decision for nostalgic fans looking forward to the show, but it's for the best.

NOT THE MISS SAIGON I REMEMBER

They took out they heart of the show. All of the lyric changes really threw me off. My two favorite songs, Please was changed so much it missed the point of the song and Now That I've Seen Her was taken out. It was far grittier and all the changes made it difficult to connect to the main characters' love story. Heartbroken by the changes to all of my favorite songs. They focused more on the darkness and grundge of the time and less on the heart and humanity. If you don't know the original, it's a good one to see. But for the loyal fans, don't waste your money. Keep the movie in your mind from the 1990's version.

MISS SAIGON

Great sets. Gritty! Difficult to understand lyrics. Especially Kim and the Engineer. Was it a question of the mikes or poor enunciation? Disappointed. Yet there was a standing ovation in Chicago. Not for children.

MISS SAIGON

Very disappointed as I didn’t know it had changed from the version I saw over 10 years ago. It was very unnecessary to have it be so sleazy. I agree with other reviewers that it was hard to understand the words at times. The theater is beautiful and I might see Fiddler there soon as hopefully they haven’t changed that version. Our seats were good.

MISS SAIGON

It saddens me to write this but I've seen Miss Saigon numerous times, in NY, London and SF at the Orpheum but this time was horrendous I was shocked and disgusted that concert etiquette does not seem to be observed in SF at the Orpheum. About 20 minutes into the show, a couple arrived late, and were allowed to disrupt our row, and rows behind us. During a song, we all had to stand up to accommodate this couple who arrived late. We all stood, so they could get by. What happened to having the late attendees wait until the 2nd ACT? I was mortified as were the people in front and behind us. Please reinstate concert etiquette. The people who were seated on time should not be punished because other people arrive late. Also, this was the worst version of Miss Saigon I have ever seen. I think due to the influence of The Voice and American Idol, the singers overdue it. There's no build, just overdramatic vocals. It was sad as it didn't affect people the way it used to.
