I was SOOOOOOOO excited about Miss Saigon coming back to London. It's been my most favourite of all musicals since seeing it back in 1990. Just loved, loved, loved it to bits and constantly play the sound-track - still!
However, I was ever so slightly disappointed by the changes made to this current version. For me, it didn't need the swearing and sexual connotations. The casting of Chris being 6'4" and King being 4' nothing didn't work. It just looked so awkward when they were stood next to each other.
My favourite song "I'll Give My Life For You" didn't have the same impact as it does when I listen to it on original, original cast recording CD.
Such a shame because I wanted it it to be absolutely brilliant and it wasn't. Also, tickets were blooming expensive and 2 people were let in an hour into the performance and were sitting right in the middle of our row. So during a beautiful rendition of "I Still Believe" we all had to stand up and move bags, coats, etc whilst these 2 selfish people disrupted the performance. VERY BAD SHOW FROM THE THEATRE. I did complain, but nothing was done about.
Sorry to be such a downer, but why did they have to change anything about the show? It was perfect as it was. 'Nuff said.
