No need to review production. The people on duty already drew the crowd: Beatrice Chia (director), Lim Yu Beng, Karen Tan, writer Haresh Sharma, etc, etc.
With a great cast like that and the reverberations of new compositions and lyrics about the 60's, it's already a big success.
My post is just about how one lady, with her magic, SMSed us and...
Friends connected during the performances of Tropicana The Musical at the Capitol Cinema. It all started with actress and producer of the show, Kheng Hua inviting a few music people and some who lived those years, for a sit-in at the commencement of the production as everyone discussed 60's music and nightclubs.
Then surprise, surprise, she invited us to the show.
With George Chew, Larry Lai, Rediffusion DJ and wife Selina, and the maestro himself, musician drummer, singer, Louis Soliano during the buffet dinner.
With Kheng Hua, Anthony AhKim, international hairstylist, Ms Ann King, a former Miss Singapore 80's, at Corpthone King Hotel.
This gathering was a tea-break for new friends way before the performances at the Capitol.
And with Vernon Cornelius, frontman of The Quests, who still looks as youthful.
The show itself, was a totally Singapore experience, and one of the best local musicals I've seen these last two years.
Thanks to Kheng Hua for the invitation.
The night ended with George Chew and I rushing to the Conrad Hotel, Singapore to watch 60's band, The Silver Strings perform their last 5 or 6 songs. Pix is a side view.
