Enjoy Miss Saigon on a weekend trip to London

Enjoy Miss Saigon on a weekend trip to London

If you're heading to London sometime in the next few months, then surely one of the must-do activities while in the capital is to enjoy a West End show.

Like Broadway in New York, the city's Theatreland district is known throughout the world over as being a truly magical place, home – at least temporarily – to some of the biggest names on the entertainment scene.

And the industry has just been given a further boost by the news that one of the most eagerly-awaited releases of 2014 has smashed box offices records for sales.

Miss Saigon, which first ran in the capital 25 years ago, collected as much as £4.4 million on the first day of ticket sales, thereby beating the previous record set by the Book of Mormon, written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

The production tells the story of a Vietnamese girl who falls in love with an American GI.

Speaking to the BBC, Cameron Mackintosh, the show’s producer, expressed his shock at just how popular the show has already proven to be.

He said: "I'm bowled over with today's box office take. It's staggering. Today's response is completely overwhelming."

The show has managed to overtake the Broadway record for first day sales, too, underlining just how much the British public is looking forward to its return to the West End.

And the achievement is made all the more impressive by the fact that casting has not yet been announced for the revival of the production.

It has been confirmed, however, that the show will debut on Saturday, May 3rd at the Prince Edward Theatre.

So, if you’re intending to head to the capital next year, it might be worth joining the long list of visitors who are keen to see Miss Saigon.
