"Miss Saigon"

Miss Saigon
Claude-Michel Schonberg (Music); Richard Maltby, Jr. & Alain Boubill (Lyrics)

Danielle Mendoza & Terrence Sullivan
The story originating from Puccini’s much-beloved opera Madame Butterfly is well enough known that most audience members arrive anticipating the tragic ending to its ill-fated love story.  But what may surprise and astound those fortunate enough to make their way to the historic Fox Theatre in Redwood City to see the latest Miss Saigon is that Broadway by the Bay is staging this musical based in the post Vietnam War era with a heavy nod to the current immigrant controversies and crises in Europe and within our own borders.

Rating: 5 E
