Toronto (February 4, 2010) - Dancap Productions in association with Pittsburgh CLO proudly announces a limited engagement of the Tony Award®-winning sensation MISS SAIGON, from July 9 to August 1, 2010, at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.
"Miss Saigon is one of the most successful musicals in the history of British theatre and I am thrilled to be bringing this eye-popping production to the Four Seasons Centre. It is the perfect east-meets-west themed companion piece to our presentation of Rodger's & Hammerstein's South Pacific," said Dancap Productions President Aubrey Dan.

Dancap's inaugural Summer Broadway Series at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts will feature MISS SAIGON from July 9 to August 1, 2010 followed by Rodger's & Hammerstein's South Pacific from August 12 to September 5, 2010. Pre-sale opportunities begin Saturday, February 6, with individual show tickets and two-show packages starting from only $106.00.

Set in 1975 during the final days of the American occupation of Saigon, MISS SAIGON is an epic love story. An American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years end in tragedy for her, and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. MISS SAIGON features show-stopping numbers like "I Still Believe", "Why God Why?" and "The American Dream".

A modern interpretation of Puccini's Madame Butterfly, creators Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schˆnberg (Les Misˆ©rables) were first inspired by a photo of a Vietnamese mother leaving her daughter at a departure gate for a plane headed to the United States, and, presumably, a better life. The idea of a mother's ultimate sacrifice is a central theme in MISS SAIGON.
