    Music by Claude-Michel Schonberg

    Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Alain Boublil

      May 10 – June 2, 2013

    Playhouse on the Square

    Both a classic love story and a daring pop opera, Miss Saigon is the story of Chris and Kim, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl who fall in love during the Vietnam War only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Years later, Chris returns to Asia and discovers that Kim is alive and raising their son, and he must choose between them and the life he has built in America.

    Miss Saigon is directed by Jordan Nichols (Avenue Q) and features Resident Company Member Nick Lerew (Hot L Baltimore) as Chris with visiting artist Maya Naff (Avenue Q) as Kim. Resident Company Members Michael Detroit, Eileen Peterson, Colin Morgan, and Noby Edwards are also featured. Visiting artist Gen Parton Shin makes his Playhouse on the Square debut as Thuy.

    Miss Saigon runs May 10 – June 2 at Playhouse on the Square Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. The Pay What You Can performance is Thursday, May 16 at 8pm. Playhouse on the Square is located at 66 S. Cooper Street. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or purchase tickets online at playhouseonthesquare.org.
