Mrs. D. Hagen from Cleveland, Ohio
This is the second time I have seen The play miss Saigon at the Cleveland Playhouse. The first time I found the production to be very good. I was there last night, February 7, and left at intermission with a flood of other people. I found this production to be cheesy and Ronchi. The first scene of the play takes place in a whorehouse. This could have been done very tastefully. However they chose the low road. Dry humping one another and showing bare ass. This was not necessary to get this otherwise beautiful storyline across. It was also quite difficult to understand the words of the songs. Had I not known the story previously, I would’ve been totally lost. Extremely disappointing. And may consider not getting the Broadway series again next year.

THE FIRST SCENE IS EXPLICIT, EVEN PORNOGRAPHIC.
We saw Miss Saigon several years ago, and the only reason we saw it again was that it was part of our season ticket package. This go-round, however, seemed markedly more sexually explicit than the first production. Dancers onstage were simulating oral sex, coital sex, prostitution and rape. Which was a shame because the lead actors had beautiful voices. Their singing was upstaged by the vulgarity. My wife and I walked out at the end of the first act, and would have left sooner but we would've disrupted the audience. Just be forewarned-- you'll probably want to keep the kids home for this one.

MISS SAIGON DALLAS SUMMER MUSICALS
Very Inappropriate display. Strongly caution you to read the reviews. I walked out of the show with my children within the first 10 minutes. I would describe the opening scenes as embarrassing, sleazy, profane, uncomfortable.
Lenny martinez from Nashville, Tennessee
I saw this show many years ago in San Francisco. The version I saw last night was raunchy. Total disappointment.

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY
Bought four tickets for my daughters birthday. She is 22 and brought her boyfriend who is 2/ and my 16 year son came as well . I had seen the show in London back twenty years ago maybe and loved it. Didn’t remember the whole story but I KNOW It absolutely did not have the vulgar simulated sex acts and near nudity. It was disgusting. I was extremely embarrassed to have planned this trip for my kids and to have my daughter’s boyfriend along made it even worse ! The singing was yelling and you couldn’t understand anything they were singing. Absolutely horrible show and we left before it was over and should have left after the first scene! Many people did not come back after the intermission so we were clearly not alone in our thoughts.

IF YOU CAN'T HEAR THE LYRICS, THE STORY GETS LOST. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY
Four out of four of the people in our party could not hear the lyrics for almost every song in the 1st Act. Since the musical has NO dialogue that is not sung, this means that we all struggled to understand the plot. Two of our party had seen the show in its original cast tour, and found this production to be seriously flawed.

WORST SHOW I’VE EVER SEEN
Such a let down!! Do not recommend. It was terrible. Don’t waste your money. Worst show I’ve seen in four seasons at Gammage.
