PCK--The Musical

Attended PCK the Musical on Friday evening. The music was rather well-written, the acting and choreography was recommendable, but what’s with the 40th birthday bash theme? Government propaganda, har? I know this year is Singapore’s 40th anniversary of independence and nation building, but why does Gurmit Singh have to blast us constantly with that message? Even the blocks of ‘flats’ on the stage carries the block numbers 65, 8, 9, 40. Any Singaporean can tell you how it’s related to our National Day…but whoa, it seems like the strand of patriotism running within the musical is overdone. And there was this segment on Civil Defence that stood out like a sore thumb from the rest of the scenes. How does it fit into the story???

In my opinion, it was Tan Kheng Hua who stole the limelight for the evening. Her portrayal as the neurotic, pretentious snob in the Phua family was executed to perfection and she looks darn hot in all her costumes and dance segments.
The highlight of the evening was the dinner I had and the drinks that followed. Ended with a lovely discovery of chocs and all I can say is that “It’s B-E-A-U-TIFUL!”

Daily Trivia: It was during NDP 95 when fireworks were computerised and synchronised with the music for the first time.
