The search to cast the original production of Miss Saigon in 1988 brought the musical's creators around the world. When they held auditions in the Philippines, Jon Jon Briones auditioned for legendary producer Cameron Mackintosh on a whim and landed a part in the chorus of the musical. Briones was quickly whisked off to London, in what was his first time out of the country, to perform in the mega musical.
Now, years later, Briones is leading the Tony-nominated Best Musical Revival on Broadway in the role of the Engineer. Hear the story of his journey from the chorus to center stage in this video from The New York Times. Tickets for Miss Saigon are available by visiting the show page below.
