“Miss Saigon” is returning to the stage in 2014, with producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh at the helm. Mackintosh himself toldPhilippine Star columnist Ricky Lo that he just needs to find a theater for his successful West End production. “When we did the show in London 25 years ago, we spent over a year looking for the cast. I hope that in the next 18 months it would be back in London,” Mackintosh said. “Miss Saigon” conducted auditions 3 weeks ago in Manila, and Mackintosh said he hopes the auditions will be faster this time. Because he has been busy promoting the film, “Les Miserables,” Mackintosh told Lo he has not had the chance to review the tapes of the Philippine auditions. “Miss Saigon” will celebrate its 25th year in 2014.
