Miss Saigon is finally coming home in Manila.

After more than a decade of performances abroad, the award-winning musical will be staged at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) beginning September 29, 2000, with Lea Salonga reprising her award-winning role as the Vietnamese bar girl Kim.

The Philippine production of Miss Saigon comes after more than nine months of negotiations between the local producers and the Cameron Mackintosh production team.

The musical premieres on September 29 and will have a 24-week run until the end of March next year. There will be eight performances each week, with weekend matinees.

The production is being produced in the country by Saigon Company Philippines Inc., represented by Mackintosh’s Manila representative Dong Alegre, the show’s executive producer, and Bayang Makulay Foundation Inc., headed by its president Joseph Victor Ejercito.

Miss Saigon chronicles the life of the Vietnamese bar girl Kim and her sacrifice to give her child a better life. Since its first production in 1989, Filipinos has had a soft spot for the musical since its cast is composed mostly of Filipinos. Salonga, who played the role in both West End and Broadway, won the Olivier and Tony, major theater awards in London and New York.
