Miss Saigon, one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time, will kick off Broadway In Detroit’s 2013-2014 theatre season at the Fisher Theatre, September 24 – October 6. In Miss Saigon, Puccini’s Madame Butterfly is brought to the modern world. This powerful pop opera is an emotional tale about forbidden love, the tragedies of war and the sacrifices made to achieve the American Dream.
Miss Saigon is a love story about the relationship between an American GI and a young Vietnamese woman during the American occupation of Saigon during the Vietnam War. The Tony Award-winning musical was created by Claude Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil, the visionaries behind Les Miserables, and features a series of sensational musical numbers including, “Why God Why?” and “The American Dream.” It remains the 11th longest-running Broadway musical in musical theatre history.
The creative team for Miss Saigon includes Director Fred Hanson who is based in New York and Rio de Janeiro. In Brazil, he has directed a new production of Baby and Jekyll & Hyde. Hanson’s previous experience with Miss Saigon includes Associate Director to Nicholas Hytner on the original Broadway productions and directing his own versions for the St. Louis Muny, São Paulo and Tokyo (2004 & 2008).
