By Nancy A. Murphy In its production of Miss Saigon Vintage Theatre takes an ambitious leap by paring down this sprawling, gigantic musical to fit their more modest stage. Thanks to a great deal of talent and a lot of hard work they have managed to pull it off with good success. Based on the story of Madame Butterfly, but set in Viet Nam at the end of the war, it is the old story of the American military man who loves and then deserts a local girl. This musical is far grittier than Puccini’s opera and the music could never be compared to the unparalleled score of Butterfly. Nevertheless, it is entertaining and thought-provoking, reminding us at a deep level that war causes great casualties in addition to those suffered by military personnel.
