Miss Saigon: The 25th Anniversary Performance
The sell-out 25th anniversary live gala performance featuring performances by original cast members Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) and Lea Salonga.
On the recording of the live performance, producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh comments, "The results were so astonishingly cinematic that it was decided that in order to create a unique cinematic/theatrical experience we would film some additional covering shots filmed in January 2016. As this was a filmed live performance, the orchestra and vocals were taken directly from the show’s sound system – one take and no overdubs! It was decided not to digitally remove the stage microphones to remind viewers this was a stage event rather than a film. Remarkably, the emotional performances of this wonderful cast in close-up seems entirely natural as if they were being shot for the cinema rather than being performed in a 1,700-seat theatre."
