Miss Saigon in Boston Details
Get swept away in this epic, tragic love story inspired by Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, envisioned by the team that brought Les Misérables to life. The memorable music, breathtaking set design, and captivating performances have all made it one of the longest-running shows in Broadway history. The latest Broadway revival pays homage to the original musical, but with a more contemporary twist — electronically pumped up scores, a more diverse cast, and witty, updated lines to reflect current-day politics.
Miss Saigon tells the love story of a young Vietnamese girl and an American G.I. whose encounter changes their lives forever. With a spectacular set design featuring the infamous helicopter roaring on stage and the energizing pop-opera soundtrack that uplifts and intensifies scenes like the “Dreamland bar” and the “communist victory march,” this powerhouse musical will stay with you long after you leave the theater. Miss Saigon is the winner of multiple Tony Awards and has toured across the world including the revival of London’s West End production where it broke the box office for opening day ticket sales in 2014. The original production featured Tony Award winning actor Jonathan Pryce, a seasoned star of stage and film, as the lead actor ‘The Engineer.’ Both the original London and Broadway productions of Miss Saigon featured many of the same key cast members.
Miss Saigon often stops in Boston on its National Tour. Citizen’s Bank Opera House is a venue that commonly hosts shows of this scale.
The Citizens Bank Opera House dates back to 1928 when it was the B.F. Keith Memorial Theatre, named after one of the originators of vaudeville entertainment. In 2004 it underwent a $50 million restoration to return it to its original opulence and a name change from Boston Opera House to Citizens Bank Opera House. Guests are treated to an active program year-long that includes the Boston Ballet, top-touring Broadway shows, and live music concerts. The theatre features state of the art sound, near perfect acoustics, and no-obstruct view seating so every seat is a clear eye path to the stage.
Miss Saigon is the winner of many theater awards including two Laurence Olivier Awards and three Tony Awards — both for acting and for their original London and Broadway productions. The musical received countless nominations, but never won the award for “Best Musical.”
On average, a ticket to see Miss Saigon in Boston will likely run fans over $125. That said, this figure is an average, and the actual price may vary depending on where you are sitting.
