Broadway star Lea Salonga returned on stage at the close of the “Miss Saigon” show on Monday in celebration of the musical’s 25th anniversary.
Salonga performed “Last Night of the World” together with the 1989 ‘Chris’, Simon Bowman and later joined by current Kim and Chris, Alistair Brammer and Eva Noblezada which drew a lot of cheers from the crowd.
But another act which also drew loud cheers and applause from the audience at the Prince Edward Theatre in London was when Salonga shared the stage with fellow Filipina Rachelle Ann Go, who is currently playing as Gigi in the West End revival.
Rachelle shared a photo on her Instagram with Lea Salonga. And she wrote:
“I am still overwhelmed! Last night was just phenomenal. I still could not believe I was part of the 25th anniversary of Miss Saigon. God is amazing! Thank You.. To Ms. Lea Salonga who asked me 2 years ago if I was going to audition for Miss Saigon, salamat po… I didn’t imagine we are going to share a West End stage.. Haaay… You are an inspiration.. I will forever be grateful to all the people who helped me reach my dreams. Yes, dreams do come true…”
Pinoy power was in full swing when they performed ‘Movie In My Mind‘ together on West End stage. It was truly breathtaking to watch. Definitely would make you proud to be a Filipino.
