Miss Saigon opened to rave reviews at MalmöOpera in Sweden! Here is a selection:Svenska Dagbladet(Swedish Daily Newspaper)"Spectacular and nicely executed scenes. Li-Tong Hsu, who here creates her first role on a Swedish stage and impresses with her Swedish pronunciation and is touching as the young Kim."Sydsvenskan(Daily Newspaper)"Li-Tong Hsu as the innocent Kim has made a journey into the Swedish language, a journey
which you can´t but admire. She also finds touching expressions for the love and affection of Kim, both in singing and acting.Well earned ovations!"Skånska Dagbladet(regional Newspaper)"Kim is sung by Li-Tong Hsu, who makes a memorable interpretation of a fragile young woman with an enormous spiritual power. Her voice has the same power in the lower range as in the higher and lighter. Li-Tong also gives her character a depth which touches and affects you – was any eye dry in the auditorium when she sang “I'd give my life for you” to little Tam?"Kvällsposten(Evening Newspaper, Sweden)"Philip Jalmelid´sChris and
Li-Tong Hsu´s Kim have so much pathos and power of living the parts and perfectly placed emotions as you possibly can squeeze out of this cavalcade of duets and tearful monologues. You can absolutely not complain about the level of intensity or musicality in the voices."Kristianstadsbladet(regional Newspaper)"The casting is 100%

Dear AnD friends,
Just finished singing at the HK premiere of " Les Misérables"the movie.
Bring your tissues when you go and watch it!!! So beautiful and touching!
With gorgeous Lisa S.
It's finally here, my first Mandarin MV!!! The Chinese title is:
Hope you'll enjoy the clip and please help me to share it with your friends!!!
We had a party for all the kids who alternate in the role of Tam. Tam is Kim's son in "Miss Saigon".
Tam is supposed to be almost 3 years in the show and we actually have mostly girls who play the role. Some of the girls have to either have their hair cut short or wear a short wig in the show.
It was such a fun afternoon making cupcakes together! Afterwards, the whole cast enjoyed a mini-version of Miss Saigon performed by all of our 14 Tams!!! It was so touching!!!
I've played Kim and Ellen with every one of these adorable kids. I love working with them and to me they really add extra joy and sparkle to this production!
What's new in Saigon, last week we had our 250th show!!!!
Sunday has become our regular drinks night anyway as we always have a matinee on that day and also because it's the end of a 7-show week (sometimes even 8 shows!)
So what else is new. We had rehearsals with our new Chris, Jamai Loman, who will be officially taking over from our current Chris, Ton Sieben, on the 10th of June. Last week I got to go on as Kim and Ellen and it was already the last time for me to play opposite Ton. He's not the first cast member who leaves for other commitments. During the run we have said goodbye to some really cool people, but luckily we always get some really nice and wonderful people in return!
I'm going to enjoy this amazing production and all the great people who are involved as long as it lasts!
