Inspired by Puccini's opera 'Madame Butterfly,' Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s 'Miss Saigon' is an epic and tragic love story about the relationship between Chris, an American GI, and Kim, a young Vietnamese woman, during the final days of the Vietnam War. A runaway hit in its original incarnation, 'Miss Saigon' was the 13th longest-running show in Broadway history.

See it if You like a really strong story line, astounding staging with a flying helicopter and a fun show that starts a little slow.
Don't see it if The singing has to be memorable. With the exception of one song, I don't remember any of it. Also it's a super misogynistic play.

See it if you loved the original or if you never saw it or if you didn't "get" the original. Just go see it. It is moving, exciting, magical
Don't see it if you hate musicals. This is sung through but doesn't feel stilted. Cast is brilliant. Choreo is amazing. And that score is breathtaking.
See it if You like powerhouse singers, romantic ballads, elaborate moving sets, and grand scale. You’d see Fantine’s spin-off.
Don't see it if You’re looking for fine acting and characters you can relate to (rather than tragic types in extreme situations), or a cheerful comedy

Don't see it if You have seen a gentler more light handed version. If you have never seen it. This just doesnt work on any level.
See it if A flawed & powerful indictment of the Vietnam pullout, stolen from Madama Butterfly. My 30-year-old seatmate had a history lesson & was...
Don't see it if ...shocked by the seamy portrayal of Saigon/Bangkok nightlife, but what was not true? I cried just as occurred 25 years ago & at Puccini.
See it if the tour comes to you & you’ve never seen it. The memorable score lifts uneven material. Briones, Noblezada & Ilaw gave great Bway turns.
Don't see it if you’ve seen it before. The changes made to the libretto since its original London run have lessened the show rather than improved it.
See it if you want to feel something profound while also being taken by an unexpected romance; don't mind tragedies. Go to see Eva Noblezada amaze.
Don't see it if you don't like unhappy endings, are bothered by some sexy and salacious scenes (and song lyrics), need something more contemporary and new.

Don't see it if You don't like big, intense, lavish musicals. I was not familiar with the original & was completely swept up by the story & blown away.
See it if you never saw the original (Lea Salonga was the whole show then). In this lavish revival, The Engineer is the whole show and he's excellent.
Don't see it if you saw the original. Same 2-3 pretty songs, the helicopter is still cool (if it works), but still one of THE worst bdwy-show endings EVER.
See it if You want to cry all night and feel bad about America, the Vietnam War, the state of the world, and just everything, but in a good way.
Don't see it if You don't have tissues handy.
See it if You have or haven't seen the original classic musical. Themes, music and lyrics are still powerful.Cast gave great performances.
Don't see it if You are expecting the duplication of the terrific performances given by Jonathan Pryce and Lea Salonga.
