Post Favorite portrayal of each character!
Dear "Miss Saigon" Fans,

Which portrayal of each "Miss Saigon" character is your favorite?

Seeing as how I've never seen the production live, the following is my incomplete far:

Kim: I really like Joanna Ampil's voice, but, in my opinion, Jennifer Paz just seems like the sweetest Kim; she just seems so sweet and sympathetic (I watched the National Tour production on YouTube) In some ways, though, I can't always make up my mind, because Ampil's performance is super cool. Jennifer Paz' Kim is somewhat fascinating, though, in that she really seems to have a truly sweet sense of love for Tam (?)

Engineer: I think that I'll always prefer Kevin Gray's Engineer! I think that Jonathan Pryce is slightly overrated, and that Kevin Gray perfectly nails the Engineer's blend of sleaziness, eroticism, and beyond-survivalist greed.

I'll have to keep listening to the different actors who portrayed the other characters in order to choose my favorites.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Till Next Time,
The Duchess of Mint

I want someone who's the deviant version of Fred MacMurray, David Tomlinson & William Schallert....but who has the looks of guys like Dan Haggerty, Kris Kristofferson & Tom Selleck.
