Everybody needs a bit of #MondayMotivation to kick-start the week. And where better to find that motivation than in the ever-changing land of theatre? So, I hear you ask, what’s my #MondayMotivation this week?
You Can Now Buy the 25th Anniversary Recording of Miss Saigon!!
Who doesn’t adore Miss Saigon? Even if you were unfortunate enough to miss both the West End run in 2015 and the screening of the 25th Anniversary Performance, you still have a chance to catch it – and there is absolutely no excuse now, as you can simply buy it on DVD or Blu Ray, and watch it (repeatedly) in your own home. In fact, it’s only £12.99 on Amazon – buy two!
Miss Saigon tells the incredible story of Kim and Chris, a romance torn apart by war. Although, put like that, it sounds a little clichéd, the beautiful complexity of the story is guaranteed to move you. It was composed by Claude-Michel Schönberg, who also composed the stunning Les Misérables. This anniversary recording stars Jon Jon Briones and Eva Noblezada, both of whom shine in the iconic leading roles of the show. But why are you listening to me talk about Miss Saigon? Get the DVD and ramble on about it yourself!
In other news …
Nell Gwynn, the fabulous play by Jessica Swale, will be touring in 2017, and will show at the Globe in March and April.
This year, the show won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and, having seen it whilst it was in London, I would highly recommend the show to absolutely anybody. You can read my review of the show here.
Until next time – may your Monday be musical.
