Anyone who knows me will tell you how much I love musicals, the theatre and getting dressed up, which means that when anyone suggests going to the theatre, especially in London, I can’t resist! This time it was a very spontaneous trip to see Miss Saigon with the mister that took me up to London. I always used to think that getting theatre tickets was either super expensive, or that you had to book in advance, but recently I’ve been proven wrong. We managed to snag some incredible seats at an even better price – and we only booked 2 days in advance!
For any of you who don’t know much about musicals, or who just haven’t seen Miss Saigon, I warn you now, it isn’t as cheery as other musicals! However, it is one of the most powerful and most beautiful musicals I’ve seen: and one that I’m sure I’ll be back to see before it finishes in the West End. It’s all about Kim: a girl who meets a GI in Saigon and who falls in love. (Okay, I make it sound a little boy meets girl but I promise, it’s way more than that!). Essentially, the musical is about a tragic love story between two people who met in the depths of war and found love but who were separated as the Americans left Vietnam.
