Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production of Boublil and Schönberg’s legendary musical Miss Saigon — a recent smash hit in the West End — comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre as part of a major UK and Ireland Tour.
Winner of a record-breaking nine Whatsonstage Awards 2015 including Best Show, this epic love story tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with an American GI called Chris — but their lives are
torn apart by the fall of Saigon.
The concept of the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre arose back in 1992. Mike Adamson CEO of Live Nation Ireland and 3Arena was constantly being asked by the producers of Ballet, Opera, Drama and Musicals about staging their productions in Dublin. During this time, a restricted amount of large scale theatre productions were being staged at 3Arena such as Cats, Bolshoi Ballet, Kirov Ballet, Miss Saigon, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Glyndebourne Opera and Mamma Mia. It soon became obvious that the demand for theatre productions surpassed the weeks available in any given year at 3Arena.
