Have you ever had the opportunity to see the Musical, Miss Saigon? This spectacular musical debuted in London on September 20, 1989. It arrived on Broadway in 1991.
Created by the Les Miserables team of Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil, the 1970s-set Miss Saigon centers on the doomed romance between a Vietnamese woman and her American G.I. lover.
As of May 5, 2019, Playbill listed Miss Saigon as the 13th longest-running Broadway musical in musical theatre history. It is known for landing a helicopter on stage.
Although the show has had some criticism for not showing the “real” Viet Nam, it is one of the most popular shows from Broadway. The music is just amazing.
On June 21, 2010, Clay Aiken and Quiana Parler performed one of the most popular duets from Miss Saigon. Titled, Last Night Of The World, their performance was a huge hit at the benefit concert for The North Carolina Theater.
The following video is the performance by Clay and Quiana
Have you seen Miss Saigon?
The music is so beautiful and everyone seems excited when the helicopter lands on the stage!
Never got to see “Miss Saigon” or the great event in N.C. but have watched a lot of videos from the benefit show and I loved them all. Quiana and Clay sang this song with so much beauty and feeling. They both were in exceptional voice that night!
Loved all of the pics, too! Thank you as always – great memories!
Thank you for the pictures and the video. The pictures and video are great. I did not see this event in NC. I did see Miss Saigon, the play many years ago in Philadelphia. Yhe music is beautiful and sad. Thank you CANN.
Yes, I did see the stage play Miss Saigon. The story & music are beautiful. Clay & Quiana sang a touching version. I just wish the lighting on Clay didn’t ‘wash his face out’ in this video. Thanks for the memories.
