The setting of the plot is relocated to 1970s Saigon during the Vietnam War, and Madame Butterfly's story of marriage between an American lieutenant and Japanese girl is replaced by a romance between an American GI and a Vietnamese bar girl.The musical premiered at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, in London on 20 September 1989, closing after over four thousand performances, on 30 October 1999. It opened on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre in 1991 and subsequently played in many other cities and embarked on tours.The musical represented Schönberg and Boublil's second major success, following Les Misérables in 1985. As of December 2012, Miss Saigon is still the eleventh longest-running Broadway musical in musical theatre history.THE CAST (in order of appearance):Saigon - April 1975The Engineer KEVIN GRAY (Toronto/Los Angeles) Kim JOANNA AMPIL (London/Sydney) Gigi SONIA SWABY (London) Mimi ZOEI LAM Yvonne IMELDA DE LOS REYES Yvette MIRLA CRISTE Bar Girls EMY BAYSIC, SYLVIA DOHI, RONA FIGUEROA, LYDIA GASTON, MARGARET GATES, ZOEI LAM, CHRISTINE LANGNER, HEIDI MEYER, CHERI NAKAMURA, ELIZABETH PAW, CHLOE STEWART, JADE KAIWALANI STICE, ROXANNE TAGA Chris PETER COUSENS (Sydney) John HINTON BATTLE (New York) Marines DONNELL AARONE, ROBERT BARTLEY, ERIC BATES, C.C.
