Does anyone still read this forum?
The purpose of this message is to (hopefully) meet more people interested in Miss Saigon - among my friends who are into theatre, there seems to be a lot of negativity for this show, and I can't figure out why (besides the obvious socio-political implications for some) - and so I am turning to this community.
I've been into the show for a variety of reasons - partially personal ones (my late father was a Vietnam War veteran), but also because I genuinely enjoy the music. I also find the story personally compelling. I was lucky enough to play in the orchestra as a horn player when the show came to Calgary last year and would be glad to share more about this with anyone interested.
Does anyone else feel that this show is very special? If so, I'd like to hear from you. I have a lot of cool souvenirs from the show - including lots of the "cut" music and audios from way back in the late 80s. I am also looking for audio of the show - especially anything from the 1993 Toronto production.
Hope to hear from someone,
