The cast of "Miss Saigon"

From the creators of Les Misérables, Miss Saigon is the 13th longest-running Broadway show, and it is currently touring nationally after a successful 2017 revival.

The story is a tragic tale of love between a young Vietnamese "bargirl"/sex worker and an American G.I. and set in 1975 war-torn Saigon, Vietnam.

Based on the Italian opera Madame Butterfly, the talented 42-person cast is sure to dazzle with spectacular choreography and serenade the crowd with songs like “The Movie in My Mind” and “The Heat is on in Saigon.”

April 9-21. $31-$114. Aronoff Center, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, cincinnatiarts.org.
