A GREAT SHOW PROBABLY IF I COULD HAVE HEARD THE SONGS

The leads in this show have incredible range and power in their voices. Unfortunately I could not understand most of songs since the sound design and operator did a complete disservice to this talented cast. We have center orchestra mid-theater seats and had to strain to hear the words. The sound design team should apologize to the cast and the audience. The system was loud nearly all the time but still could not actually understand songs or dialog. Absolutely ruined the show for me. I could tell there were problems because there was not much audience reaction to the story. Lighting and all other tech was spot on. The cast should feel very proud of the incredible performance they worked to perfect.

HARD TO UNDERSTAND

It was very difficult to understand the lyrics in Act 1. I think it was a mic issue, but it would have helped if the actors had better diction. I also thought it was unnecessarily dirty. I think that took away so much of what this show is about. I'd rather see the Opera next time, at least there are sub-titles! The set and lighting was great!

DISAPPOINTED, SADLY

I love Broadway—Broadway anything! I was looking forward to seeing Miss Saigon for the first time. The sound of the helicopter at the opening scene had me on the edge of my seat w/anticipation! Then, confusion set in. Had difficulty hearing lyrics and following the erratic storyline - seemed all over the place, creating a disconnect palpable throughout the audience. After an hour and a half(!) of trying desperately to let the performance ‘take me’, the lights came up for intermission. My husband and I looked at each other thinking “what just happened?” We went outside to the front of the theater to get some air when he asked if I was able to follow this and, for the first time EVER, I told him I was not at all able to get into this show. THEN, another first which I am embarrassed to admit to, we LEFT AT INTERMISSION! On the drive home I kept repeating, “I can’t believe we left at intermission.” I SO wanted to see the infamous helicopter scene!! Sadly, sadly disappointed.

COULD, SHOULD BE BETTER

Definitely not for children. Dreamland's "sex slaves" leave nothing to the imagination. Why? What is theater all about? Have seen Miss Saigon three times -- definitely not my favorite. I understand mood but stage could have used more lighting. I read this production was from same people who did Les Miserables this season and I thought that was too dark also. You have to work too hard to see things in such a large theater and we sit in the middle! Worse part was struggling to understand lyrics. We don't typically have this problem at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis. As this is a complex story, it seems pretty unforgivable.

NOT MY CUP OF TEA

The stage lighting was so dark, it was difficult to see some of the acting. And it was nearly impossible to follow the story line since we couldn't understand what the actors were saying for most of the show. The raunchiness of some of the scenes was unnecessary and overall we did not enjoy the show. I wanted to leave at the intermission like a lot of people did, but couldn't since we came with another couple. I wouldn't recommend this show and it's definitely not for kids.

MUSICAL YEAR JERKER

This was my first time seeing miss Saigon. It was a beautiful and emotional experience. The score just drives your journey and sweeps over you. The set design was top notch and I loved the characters. To me the music itself stole the show.

SLEEZY & RAUNCHY

This show is NOT appropriate for 12+! Not even for adults! Rated X movie on stage. We walked out after the first 10 minutes it wasn't getting any better and I was cringing the whole time thinking to myself this was going to let up and get better. Nope! The cursing and sex talk and grinding and just UGH! this is not the same miss siagon from even 5 yrs ago! why must change everything to be Filthy!
