MISS SAIGON

The show was entertaining but lacked the emotional connection. The raunchiness overshadowed the love story in my opinion. Too much time spent on the smut and not enough time spent on developing the love story. I mean I am an emotional person and often cry at movies or any kind of live entertainment but I did not cry at the end of this show (and did not even know how it ended beforehand). Also, the sound was too loud at times and I could not understand the lyrics at times. I did enjoy the duets, the dance scenes, and the helicopter scene. The entrepreneur was an interesting character. He brought a little humor to the show but I wish that he was a little more likable to lighten it up. The whole thing just felt "off" to me.

MISS SAIGON

This is the second time I have seen The play miss Saigon at the Cleveland Playhouse. The first time I found the production to be very good. I was there last night, February 7, and left at intermission with a flood of other people. I found this production to be cheesy and Ronchi. The first scene of the play takes place in a whorehouse. This could have been done very tastefully. However they chose the low road. Dry humping one another and showing bare ass. This was not necessary to get this otherwise beautiful storyline across. It was also quite difficult to understand the words of the songs. Had I not known the story previously, I would’ve been totally lost. Extremely disappointing. And may consider not getting the Broadway series again next year.

OVERWROUGHT AND MISS UNDERSTOOD

First the good. The sets were fantastic and the staging was REALLY good. In particular, the helicopter scene in the 2nd Act was breathtaking. The Orchestra was also very good. Now the Bad. Lyrics were often unintelligible when more than one person was singing. I blame the direction and sound crew for that. Beyond that, it is also problematic that there is little ebb and flow to the score. It seems like almost every song is turned up to 11 and that means, (a) The characters seem disconnected from the meaning of the music for most of the play and (b) The audience is exhausted well before the play's climax. We've been seaons' ticket holders for the better part of the last decade. This is not the worst musical I have seen, but it's in the bottom 10. It is not a play I would ever see again and it is not one that I could recommend for a first-time viewing either.

DISAPPOINTED

Miss Saigon has been one of my favorite plays since I saw it for the first time in Toronto over 25 years ago. Saw the Cleveland production years ago and loved it. Last night was so very disappointing. The raunchy aspects were elevated and the emotional love story was diminished. Not an improvement, I assure you. If one makes it through the whole show, the ending is anticlimactic. I couldn’t get emotionally invested in the characters in this production’s interpretation. My daughter and I had seen it together multiple times in the past so we were excited to share it with the next generation. My 15 year old granddaughter thought we were crazy after seeing this production with us; we had to assure her that this performance was not the Miss Saigon that we loved. Very disappointing. Not all change is for the best.

MISS SAIGON BROUGHT THE HEAT!

I want to preface by saying, Miss Saigon is my favorite musical so this may be a little biased. I sat front row on the right side and was eagerly awaiting the sound of the helicopter to signal the start of a phenomenal production. I was not disappointed! The staging and set design was breathtaking. Emily was an absolute POWERHOUSE! Her chemistry with Anthony was through the roof! I love the new production (thank you Cameron Mackintosh). I think the show feels much more real. My main disappointment was with the majority of the audience. You could tell there was no enthusiasm in the applause. This cast is performing a very emotional show and they are putting their all into it. I felt insulted for the cast by the lack of appreciation I felt from the audience. I was awestruck and this production will be held very fondly in my memory.

DISAPPOINTED AND RAUNCHY

I had high expectations for this musical based on all the hype. I found it to be overly raunchy (really cheapened the show) and drab. I would definitely call it an "R" rated production. The stage settings and props were exceptional. However, the music was not emotionally captivating or uplifting and there was nothing about this production that drew me in. I found it boring. Would not recommend spending your money on it. Definitely not on my list of favorites.

MISS SAIGON

I saw the show opening night and highly recommend it. I have seen other productions and this was one of the best. Acting, singing were first rate. A great love story.
