Twenty-three years after Miss Saigon premiered at West End, the Thai adaptation of the hit musical opens in Bangkok tomorrow

- +

Staging the legendary Miss Saigon in Bangkok has always been on Takonkiet Viravan's mind since he saw the show, which went on to become one of the biggest musical hits of all time, for the first time in London. 

Napat Injaiuea will make you believe that he’s Chris, who deeply loves and wants to protect Kim played by Kulkornpat Phothongnak.

"A few months after its opening in West End in 1989, I went to see Miss Saigon," he recalled. "Its moving story, mesmerising music, and spectacular production completely blew me away and I couldn't sleep after watching the show that Friday night. The next day I found myself queueing up to get a cancelled ticket for the matinee, and luckily I got to see the show again".
