What are the scenes of sexual nature miss saigon Birmingham

Going to see miss saigon this week, with an eleven year old. How are the scenes of sexual Nature portrayed?

It says 12 plus so would like as much info as possible so I can some up whether or not to take her.

I saw this a couple of years ago and to my memory there was nothing that could be regarded as offensive.

I guess the bed room scene might be what they had in mind but in my opinion not offensive.

I do hope that your 11 year old has good concentration as some of the scenes were a little long and it took all my powers of concentration to understand what was happening even though I had seen it before.

Having said that it was overall a fabulous production

If he doesn't know what a prostitute and brothel are he may struggle a bit.

Here's the synopsis of the play, which might help you decide:

Not having seen Miss Saigon, I've started a production running in youtube.

Clearly it depends on the maturity of the OP's daughter and the degree to which the OP has discussed topics such as prostitution with her. But, I must admit I would think twice about taking an 11 year old to the show.

It could be that the production in London is less racy than the one I'm watching.

It's good to see that this post has been introduced after staff deleted it!!

Having seen it definitely didn't think it "racy"

The racy bits will probably go right over her head. There's quite a bit of sexy dancing.

The early part of the musical (first 20 minutes or so) is set in a brothel in Saigon. Many of the girls walk round in flimsy clothes (no nudity) but there is quite a lot a couples in "clinches" (cuddling very close together or lying on top of each other with simulated sex (fully clothed of course).

I saw it in London last February and even though I am pretty broad minded I was quite shocked at some of the cavorting going on on stage.

Lets just say the actors get to know each other VERY well during each performance !

Here is a photo of the opening section of the musical which gives an idea of the raunchy goings-on at the start

The OP posted on 14th August and said that she was seeing the production 'this week' so it's safe to assume the event has been and gone.
