Fried Rice Paradise…Excited

August 25, 2010

I am rather excited about catching “Fried Rice Paradise” the musical this evening.

Original made-in-Singapore book musicals of this magnitude are few and far between, and I am really looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

Most of the reviews I’ve read so far have been generally quite kind, except for the rather unfavourable review by Boon Chan in Life! yesterday.

The cast and creative team that has been assembled for this musical is easily one of the most impressive I’ve seen in a long time (presumably because the production has a nice fat budget to work with).

I will write a proper review on it after catching it.

One thing that stands out for me – Dick Lee wrote the music, lyrics and the book.

Very impressive.

I’m not sure how many times he’s written book before, but I personally can’t remember another instance whereby I saw him being credited with writing the book.

p.s. I read somewhere that for one of the shows a few days ago, there was a technical glitch which resulted in a portion of the second act being cancelled. Strange.
