Saturday 6th January 2018, and I’m back at the Millenium Centre in Cardiff for the final two shows of Miss Saigon, before it packs up and heads for its next venue. This production has been excellent throughout, and is yet another show I will miss when it’s gone. The good news for me is the fact I’ve had the DVD of the London production for a while now, so when I get fed up and need to watch this fabulous musical again, I can.
Today as well I get the chance to see another cast change with Christian Rey Marbella playing the Engineer. Also I get one last look at the two girls playing Kim, with Joreen Bautista playing the role in the Matinee and Sooha Kim in the evening.
Today’s blog is mainly a sum up of how much enjoyment I’ve got from watching this phenomenal musical, even though I spend most of it in tears. I love the music, it’s so beautifully written. I love the fabulous voices on show from the whole cast. Some of the scenes take your breath away, especially the Helicopter scene in act two, although every scene has something special in it for me to love.
Having seen this production a total of 15 times here in Cardiff I feel as though I could never get fed up of watching ‘Miss Saigon’, it’s now become one of my favourite musicals, but then I say that about all shows I’ve seen so far. Each one has that special something about it, which makes them all just wonderful to watch. Totally fabulous production, well worth a watch next time around.
