Pioneer Theatre Guild: Miss Saigon

 
Pioneer Theatre Guild: Miss Saigon | The Fall of Saigon. A spectacular scene, and I’m not even showing the most amazing part. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, and it must be seen in person to be believed (hint, hint).

Last night I shot the final dress rehearsal for the Pioneer Theatre Guild’s production of Miss Saigon, which premiered tonight. You still have 4 more chances to see this ambitious and stunning production that left me breathless. My whole-hearted congratulations to the cast, crew, orchestra, and production team!

Mary Morgan, co-editor of the The Ann Arbor Chronicle, was also at the final dress rehearsal, and published her behind-the-scenes story this morning.

I’m going to let the images do the talking. But see my entry on the Miss Saigon publicity photos for more information about the show’s themes and content, emotional intensity, and whether it’s appropriate for young children.

Looks like an out of the park homerun all around.

Oh, by the way Myra, I went to see Miss Saigon because of your blog. It was an amazing production! Great music, acting, sets, costumes… Just fantastic. (Was totally blown away by how they pulled off the helicopter scene!)  I think it was a close second to the production I saw in London! : ) 

I told my husband that I think one day we’ll see Ashley on Broadway and remember the days when we paid $12 a ticket to see her in A2. But, she wasn’t the only shining star… I thought the male lead did an excellent job… can’t believe he’s only 16. Oh, and the engineer, Ellen, and the chorus… Everyone was just wonderful!

Oh, and don’t want to forget… you did a great job on the publicity photos! Just awesome!
