To close out our look at the Broadway megamusical, we turn our
attention to one of the most popular -- and controversial --
entries in the subgenre: Miss Saigon. Join us as we
dicuss "I Still Believe" and the enduring debate about this show's
depiction of its Vietnamese characters.
All clips are from the 1989 Original London Cast Recording of Miss Saigon featuring Lea Salonga and Claire Moore and are used in accordance with the Fair Use Exemption for criticism and commentary.
