Full casting has been announced today for the international tour of Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Boublil and Schönberg’s MISS SAIGON, which will begin in Manila before traveling to other Asian territories that have yet to be announced.

The company is led by Filipino-Australians Abigail Adriano as Kim and Seann Miley Moore as the Engineer. 19-year-old Adriano made waves during the Australian run of the production and now joins the ranks of talented Filipinas like Lea Salonga, Monique Wilson, Joanna Ampil, Carla Guevara-Laforteza, and Eva Noblezada who have played the iconic role of Kim on Broadway and West End. Leading the cast alongside Adriano and Miley Moore is Nigel Huckle as Chris, Sarah Morrison as Ellen, Lewis Francis as John, and Laurence Mossman as Thuy.
