Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Cohen
MISS SAIGON, the Vietnam War update of Puccini's "Madame Butterfly," is the high-water mark for the Euro-musical, that Continental hybrid of opera, drama and spectacle that dominated Broadway for much of the last two decades. This double-disc recording of the 1989 world-premiere cast features Jonathan Pryce and Lea Salonga, who both went on to win Tonys for their respective roles as a venal pimp and his teenage whore. The romantic score out-Webbers Lord Andrew with such affecting and surprisingly intimate songs as "The Movie in My Mind," "The Heat Is On In Saigon" and "The Last Night of the World." Pryce's eye-popping paean to supply-side economics, "The American Dream,"...

The romantic score out-Webbers Lord Andrew with such affecting and surprisingly intimate songs as "The Movie in My Mind," "The Heat Is On In Saigon" and "The Last Night of the World." Pryce's eye-popping paean to supply-side economics, "The American Dream," thrills even when separated from the show's amazing visual flash. "I'd Give My Life For You" and "Sun and Moon" finds Filipino soprano Salonga trilling with awesome power and conviction. Enthralling in its sweeping passions, MISS SAIGON captures both the chaos of war as well as the sensual ecstasies and romantic yearnings of the men and women caught up in its wake.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
This single-disc highlights album was recorded with a 73-piece orchestra and features the best of the best from the landmark musical Miss Saigon. Composers/lyricists Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg supervised the disc's production, and the album contains some of their finest pieces from the musical, including "Why God Why?," "Now That I've Seen Her," and "The American Dream."

    AWESOME SHOW

    This is an awesome show! Unfortunately it is not on Broadway anymore but you should totally get the cd. I would suggest getting the full cd with all the songs because there are a lot of great song that are missing on the one like "Please" and "This Money's Yours"

    I still believe....

    I still believe that Miss Saigon is one of the best musicals in history, only second to Les Miserables. I love the story and soundtrack and was so lucky to get it from Barnes and Noble at such a great price.
