MATINEE

@Izzy from Sacramento, the lady who played Kim on October 13th at the matinee was actually Myra Molloy.

LATE AND HORRIBLE SOUND QUALITY = WASTE OF MONEY

I have season tickets. Love Gammage and I think I would have LOVED this play had I been able to understand more of what was being said. We attended on 9/24. It started 45 minutes late (815) with no explanation. The actor who played Chris was next to impossible to understand. Clarity and acoustics were terrible and although he had a great voice, I could not make out the story in the melody. Kim's lines were not much better. John was the most audible as were the group ensemble themes but if you cannot follow the story, how moved can you be? What a huge disappointment. First half a total waste with poste intermission slightly better. I feel like I need to see it again to appreciate it. On the flip side, the props were fantastic and especially a scene involving a helicopter. It was impressive but not enough to recover from the disappointment of spending $150 for two tickets to a show that was delayed and in- inaudible. Super disappointed in the delivery of what is a great story.

MISS SAIGON AS DINNER THEATRE

I saw the original in Boston in 1990. It was heartbreaking and poignant. The revival has the emotional depth of your local high school's production of Our Town. Between the overacting, the oversinging, and horrific timing (which I suspect is just terrible directing), this production made me do something I have NEVER done in over 45 years of live theatre patronage; I left before the final scene finished. They had botched every other emotion-filled scene. I couldn't watch what they did to the last scene. I was able to wrench my eyes (and body) away from this train wreck and I feel saner for it. But, banality is growing and the whole of entertainment is suffering for it. I wish my favorite musical of all time had been given the love and care it deserved rather than turning it into pablum. It deserved better.

I WAS SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE WATCHING THIS SHOW.

I thought this show was so inappropriate. I was uncomfortable and didn't want to see most of it. I also was disturbed that an adorable 3 year old kid is performing in it and being exposed to all of that.

TRAIN WRECK

My wife and I looked forward to this show for weeks. What a disappointment. Do not waste your time and money on this. We left at intermission and spent the drive home talking about how bad it was. Very poor audio and very poor annunciation by the cast. We did not know the story line and we sure didn't get it from the show. Could only understand may 10% of the script. Lighting was bad. Could barely make out what was on stage. Music was way to loud (and I'm about half deaf!). Even the audience was rude with people talking in full voice and running cell phones in their laps. Many people bailed out at half time.

RE: MISS SAIGON ON THE MATINEE SHOW ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH 2018

@ Izzy from Sacramento, California I saw the matinee show on Saturday, October 13th and was absolutely astonished and mesmerized. From the moment the orchestra started playing the overture, I knew this was going to be a show of utmost quality. The cast was so talented and you could tell their hard work paid off because it was pure magic! Add the staging and set and wonderfully played music, and you have a production that will completely pull you in and sweep you off your feet. I cried a majority of the time. Emily Bautista, who plays Kim, definitely deserves some type of award for her performance. Honestly, bring Miss Saigon back to Broadway with this cast! They are absolutely magnificent! To Izzy, The lady who played Kim on October 13th at the matinee was actually Myra Molloy not Emily Bautista. (Myra is the alternate and plays Kim 2 shows a week). I was at that show too, and I saw her again in Boston. I’m a huge Miss Saigon fan and think Myra is the best Kim since Lea Salonga.

SCREENING WAS A TORTURE TO THE EARS!

It was horrible. Actors and actress were screening 2 hours. I wonder if their vocal cord was damaged after the show. I got severe head ache. It was a cheap imitation of Madame butterfly. I don’t know who had composed a screen singing? Analyze this! Expressing and showing the feelings has many way. Screening is the lowest level for a person or in a musical show!
