Vintage Theatre: 12/5 – 2/1
Rob Riney and Regina Fernandez Steffen
Under the astute direction of Rebecca Joseph “Miss Saigon” explodes across the stage at Vintage Theatre with powerful performances!
The musical by Claude-Michel Schonberg, Alain Boublil and Richard Maltby based upon Puccini’s opera, “Madame Butterfly” tells the tragic love story of a Vietnamese woman and an American GI.
Regina Fernandez Steffen stuns with her passionately acted and sung portrayal of Kim. Rob Riney delivers vocals that are superb as her paramour Chris. Their love duets “ The Last Night of the World” and “Sun and Moon” are sublime.
Arlene Rapal’s performance in the role of the Engineer, normally portrayed by a male actor, is extraordinary. Her delivery of the show stopping number “The American Dream” is electrifying!
Keegan Flaugh portrays Chris’s buddy, John with great heart. This actor’s singing of “Bui Doi” at the top of Act Two, supported by the male ensemble, is soul shattering.
Chachi Martin’s fiery portrayal of Thuy, the fiancée Kim’s father had “arranged” for her as a child, is riveting.
Hao Liu adds immeasurably to the performance of Stephanie Lynn Prugh’s choreography for the “The Morning of the Dragon” with his utterly deft martial arts moves.
This production’s concentration on the intimacy of the story creates an evening of theatre that exceeds expectations.
The tragic tale of a doomed romance between a Vietnamese woman and an American G.I.
