The critical consensus

[The] first must-see show of the year.

*****Martin Gray, All Edinburgh Theatre, 20/01/2018

It’s a thrilling, gut-wrenching night of theatre with some fantastic performances.

*****Ken Wilson, The Wee Review, 20/01/2018

Regardless of one’s individual opinion of Miss Saigon‘s characters or score, it is without question a theatrical masterpiece.

****(*)Dominic Corr, The Reviews Hub, 21/01/2018

Boublil and Schӧnberg’s mega musical does not purely rely on its wool-pulling stage effects, allowing an outstanding cast to soar higher than any stage wizardry.

****(*)Katie Stephen, Edinburgh Guide, 21/01/2018

A breathtakingly spectacular and gripping piece of ensemble theatre.

*****Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 22/01/2018

Surprisingly bombast-free production serves up a fluid staging of a grown-up musical that captures America's uneasy relationship with Vietnam.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 23/01/2018

All of this leads to an exasperating imbalance in the piece overall: a triumph of spectacle over substance.

***(*)(*)Allan Radcliffe, 23/01/2018

Miss Saigon undoubtedly sets the standard for other touring productions to try to match.

*****Gregor Dickson, Broadway World, 25/01/2018

Strong vocal performances and a heart in the right place can't compensate for a lack of memorable songs.
