Commentaires : For the American production Cameron Mackintosh insisted on Jonathan Pryce and Lea Salonga for the leads. American Equity, under pressure from their Asian-American members, refused to allow a non-Asian (Jonathan Pryce) to play an Asian role and insisted he be re-cast.
Cameron Mackintosh refused and announced the cancellation of the entire production - notwithstanding its potential loss of many millions of dollars. Pressure from the thousands of advance ticket-holders and from the acting profession forced Equity to change its mind and allow Jonathan Pryce to play the role. The show ran almost ten years on Broadway and since then has been performed in 25 countries and 246 cities, and it has been translated into twelve different languages.
