Rachelle Ann Go will debut on Broadway reprising her West End award-winning role as Gigi when Miss Saigon returns to its original Broadway stage in March 2017.
Go won Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her performance as a bar girl on the Cameron Mackintosh revival of the musical that was first staged in Drury Lane in 1989.
The Filipina actress is also in the 25 th Anniversary recording of the Miss Saigon video which has been recently screened in the United States.
Go’s homegrown talent joins Fil-Americans Eva Noblezada who essays the role of Kim, and Jonjon Briones, as the Engineer in the Broadway revival.
Go, Noblezada, Briones, and a number of Filipino musical stage artists have increasingly received global recognition for their talents.
Lea Salonga’s hit original portrayal of the story of Kim, a Vietnamese girl who fell in love with an American soldier during the Vietnam war, directed massive international attention to Filipino musical stage artists.
