Hong Kwangho news

I admit, Miss Saigon is not my favorite musical. Or was. Now it is!
Following people who don't tweet for half a year was a good choice afterall.

The news are here:

Kwang-Ho Hong joins the previously announced Jon Jon Briones as THE ENGINEER, Alistair Brammer as CHRIS, Tamsin Carroll as ELLEN, Hugh Maynard as JOHN, Rachelle Ann Go as GIGI and Eva Noblezada as KIM.
Cameron Mackintosh is delighted to announce that Korean star Kwang-Ho Hong will play ‘Thuy’ in his forthcoming new production of MISS SAIGON. This now completes the casting for the show which makes its highly anticipated return to the West End on Saturday 3rd May 2014 at the Prince Edward Theatre, in the musical’s 25th Anniversary Year. MISS SAIGON is currently booking for performances through to Saturday 25th October 2014.

A major solo artist, Kwang-Ho Hong‘s concerts regularly sell out arenas in his native Korea. He has also become one of the top musical actors in Korea where his credits include the roles of ‘The Phantom’ and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde in Jekyll and Hyde and Man of La Mancha. (I'd add he played also Phantom in PotO, and in Sweeney Todd, and in Laundry. Author should do better research).

Miss Saigon ensemble includes; Julia Abueva, Natalie Chua, Jon-Scott Clark, Jenny Ding, Dale Evans, Callum Francis, Ashley Gilmour,  Maria Graciano, Simon Hardwick,  Jack Harrison-Cooper, Matthew Jeans, Kurt Kansley, David Kar-Hing Lee, Kittiphun Kittipakapom, Mitch Leow, Ela Lisondra, Carolyn Maitland, Tanya Manalang, Christian Rey Marbella, Kanako Nakano, Thao Therese Nguyen, Saori Oda, Ariel Reonal, Jon Reynolds,  Romeo Salazar, Jordan Shaw, Marsha Songcome, Eloisa Amalia Tan, Christian Tanamal, Thao Vilayvong, Amadeus Williams and Gerald Zarcilla.
When this production went on sale in September last year, it broke the record for the biggest single day of ticket sales in West End and Broadway history.
