Broadway Parodies Lah! review

This was "Broadway Parodies Lah!"s review from Weekend Mail in June, 2007.
I can't believe they even mentioned my name which was rather flattering.

I can't wait for this year where we will be re-staging it as "Broadway Parodies Lagi Lah!"
It's going to be an amazing show.

Long Time No See

It's been a while since I updated my blog.
I've been truly busy doing 3 musicals back to back this year.
Since Broadway Parodies Lah!, I have 48 hours before joining Tunku - The Musical and not having any breaks in between.
Not to mentioned, after Tunku closed a week later, I was offered to do P.Ramlee - The Musical as a back-up choir.
So...no time for breaks and updates as you can see.

But...what's great is I'm back now and I will do my best to keep my blog updated with the latest information of what's going on with in my performing arts career.

Be in touch.
I'll be right back as soon as possible.

Broadway Parodies Lah! missing pics

Doreen & me...a few minutes til we open the show

Me & Cheryl Tan, a new promising star performer...only 18 and has so much potential
Kinda remind me when I was her age.

Me & Joanne Kam, the comedienne diva. She always have something to make us laugh behind stage, which truly helps us not to feel too tense before we hit the stage.

Joanne & Doreen ..a few minutes before the show starts

Me & Ivan Choong, another potential new star...great singing voice.
We are the 2 "London boys" in the show, he lives in Maida Vale while me..in Chiswick
I wouldn't have known him if weren't for the show which brought us together

Hi, here are some of the pics taken during Broadway Parodies Lah!
Sorry for the delay

I get to do 2 musicals back-to-back this year, Broadway Parodies Lah! and Tunku - The Musical.
Not only that, I get to work with Doreen Tang whom I truly admire and respect as a fellow artist. What a voice!
She's playing Fauzia, one of the 7 principles.
Looking forward for a truly great show.......

Farah & me

Farah & me, on RTM's HMI in 1991

Farah & me on Broadway Parodies Lah! 2007 (did I grow a bit taller now?)

My God, how time flies
It was just like yesterday when I 1st met Farah Sulaiman and attended her jazz and tap classes
Then suddenly, I'm working with her on a professional level for Broadway Parodies Lah!
What can I say, it's such an enjoyable moment to be reunited with her and not to mention, working with her on a different level
I'm no longer the same kid back then...as I've all grown up & matured (yes, and have grown a little taller too...hehehehe) artistically and creatively
If there's gonna be a sequel/part 2 for BPL..I definitely do it again

Rose Among The Thorns OR Thorn Among The Roses?

Sayang Dancers...chilling after our performance. Me (3rd from the right)

As usual, strike a pose before we hit the stage for HMI....

...while waiting for our turn to perform for HMI, me & Li Yen

In my dance class ...anywhere I go, I'm the only guy while the rest are all girls
Sure makes me feel like i'm the rose among the thorns...
the only thorn among the roses?...hehehehehe
Well...u decide
I do have to work 3x harder, mostly as I had got no technical training in dancing unlike the rest of the girls, who had taken ballet or modern
Me...I relied mostly on style, emotion, feelings
Competitive?? you bet!

Once...when i was a Sayang Dancer, junior batch

Me (3rd from the right) and my pals chilling out after our jazz class at Sayang Academy of Dancing, 1991

Me in black (centre), Farah Sulaiman (behind me) for one of our many performances for RTM's Hiburan Minggu Ini (HMI). This one is in 1991.

I must say I am proud to be 1 of the junior batch of the Sayang Dancer, under the guidance of Farah Dato'Sulaiman -my dance teacher and mentor.

She's also like a big sister to me.

It's been 1 of my greatest moments during my teens as I get to be trained in jazz & tap.

I remembered back then, against my parents wishes, I took my dance lessons without their knowledge

I would take a bus from PJ and walk up the hill to Bangsar, just for my lessons every Saturday.

I don't know what really got into me, but the passion & drive was very strong....

bottom line...i just wanna learn and gain knowledge

I believe all the sacrifice I made over the years truly pays off as it became clear to me now more than ever.

Hard work, perseverance, self-belief, positivity....and a good clear heart,all the key to success

I do still continue dancing whenever I can

But once....someone told me "Once you are a dancer, you are always a dancer"

Is that right....?
