Broadway Beng 3!

May 4, 2008

I caught Broadway Beng this afternoon…it was hilarious! Although I’m not that well versed in Hokkien, I still managed to catch the many references and jokes.

Basically, the set up was such that it was like a getai show with Sebastian Tan as Ah Beng. There were references to the Mas Selamat incident, the torch-bearing issues of the Olympics torch relay and Ah Beng versions of well known Broadway musicals like Sound of Music (that’s why Broadway Beng mah).

On the whole, I felt the earlier portion was funnier. But I think it was a really good effort and very creative to come out with all the adapted content.
