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

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
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

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.
Beth. from Chicago, Illinois
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.
Debbie from San Francisco, California
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.
