Another show passing through on the back of a UK West End run. Very different, as you might expect, but lots of fun - I certainly enjoyed it!
Another show passing through! Not Shanhong's favourite - but actually a good production - maybe I'm biased as it came from the West End - but the cast were great - and the local children also good. So, a good time was had by all! Let's face it - the tunes are very catchy!
Billed as the Number 1 Greatest Musical in the World - we were excited to have West Side Story passing through Singapore. On an Asian tour direct from Broadway, this had everything going for it - but turned out to be a real disappointment. We didn't go on opening night - so there was no excuse - but sound levels were appalling and the cast and orchestra simply seemed unrehearsed. I am quite sure, with the right cast - and a good sound crew - this could indeed be a great show... but for this tour - our school production 5 years ago was better.
I wasn't sure about this one - I'm sorry - this was written and created in Singapore - and I guess I had no idea what to expect - but I have to say I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Great songs, fantastic costumes, and a simple, but highly effective set made this as good as any Broadway or West End show I have ever seen, and would very happily pay to see again. This deserves to make it to the West End - and if it does - I recommend you go to see it!
