SINGER Rachelle Ann Go will travel to London this summer as she was cast to portray the role of GiGi in revival of the hit international musical “Miss Saigon”.

The good news was first posted by award-winning singer Lea Salonga on her official Twitter account.

Salonga played the lead role of Kim in the original 1989 production.

Meanwhile, seasoned singer Isay Alvarez also sent her congratulatory message to Go. She believes the Kapuso artist will do great in the show.

Go’s role was originally portrayed by Alvarez.

The 27-year-old singer also thanked her followers and supporters for the well wishes on this big break.

With her inclusion in the production, Go will get to sing “Movie In My Mind,” one of the show’s most recognizable songs.

Meantime, 17-year-old Eva Noblezada will reprise Salonga’s role as Kim in the revival of “Miss Saigon.”

A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, Noblezada was spotted by Broadway casting director Tara Rubin when she attended an event in the New York City.

The Daily Mail, a United Kingdom-based paper, quoted Rubin, saying Cameron Mackintosh, a British theatrical producer, saw the “17-year-old girl who could sing and really do it,” just like when he first spotted Salonga 25 years ago.

“Eva’s going to be our new Lea,” Cameron said.

The new Miss Saigon cast so far includes Jon Jon Miones (Engineer), Alistair Brammer (Chris), Hugh Maynard (John) and Tamsin Carroll (Ellen).

The musical powerhouse will return to the West End in May.(MNS)
