A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In Miss Saigon, the creators of Les Misérables bring Puccini's Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years end in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. An international sensation, Miss Saigon is an epic musical masterpiece with a thrilling score. Miss Saigon promises to be a truly spectacular finale to the Walnut's 202nd season!
