It addresses universal themes of love and sacrifice, teaches new audiences about the tragedies and ramifications of the Vietnam War, and is one of the most spellbinding musicals on Broadway!

In addition to the background and historical information, the guide also provides thoughtful prompts, activities, and discussion questions to actively engage students in the material.
In Miss Saigon, the composers of Les Misérables adapt Puccini’s Madama Butterfly into a tragic Vietnam War love story. In the last days of the Vietnam War, 17-year-old Kim is forced to work in a Saigon bar run by a notorious character known as The Engineer. There, she meets and falls in love with an American G.I. named Chris, but they are torn apart by the fall of Saigon. For 3 years, Kim goes on an epic journey of survival to find her way back to Chris, who has no idea he’s fathered a son
