Ni: Ruel Mendoza

NAPILI na ang gaganap na Kim para sa Miss Saigon US Tour at ito ay ang Pinay na si Emily Bautista.

Kabilang na si Emily sa mga Pinay na gumanap bilang Kim sa naturang award-winning musical na unang ginamapanan ni Lea Salonga. Ang huling gumanap na Kim sa U.S. ay ang Fil-American na si Eva Noblezada noong 2014. Nakakuha pa ng best actress in a musical revival nomination si Noblezada sa Tony Awards noong nakaraang taon.

Sa Instagram feed ng 17-year old na si Emily, pinakita niya ang happiness niya dahil kasama niya sa isang selfie ang dalawang Kim na sina Lea at Eva.

“I can’t begin to express how grateful and honored I am to be taking this incredibly relevant and beautiful story out on the road. Biggest thank you to everyone who made this day possible and has supported me thus far. Forever thankful for your love and support and big thank you to artists like Eva Noblezada and Lea Salonga for being the biggest inspirations to girls like me and so many more. Thank you for your words of wisdom and for being the incredibly talented bad ass models you are. So excited to meet the cast and get this journey started. Let’s go!” caption pa ni Emily.

Sa Twitter naman nag-reply si Lea sa post na iyon ng bagong Kim ng Miss Saigon: “Let’s all give a warm welcome to Emily Bautista as she starts her own journey as Kim on the national tour of Miss Saigon US!”

Ang iba pang kasama sa US tour ng Miss Saigon ay sina Red Concepcion as the Engineer, Anthony Festa as Chris, Stacie Bono as Ellen, J. Daughtry as John, Jinwoo Jung as Thuy, and Christine Bunuan as Gigi. Myra Molloy will serve as Bautista’s alternate.
