I got panoramic view overlooking the whole stage at the circle seat on the third floor.
My only grouse was the two Mic Studio
people seating behind me who talked rather loudly. The couple beside me keeps turning around to look at them and it was so embarrassing for me to be associated with them as Bishan
They themselves are involved in the theatre/drama works so should be familiar with the basic etiquette of watching a musical.
This is NOT a private screening for them so all the more they should be discreet of their behavior.
Anyway, Jack & The Beansprout
was really good!
I would say it is wickedly funny and Ivan Heng
definitely lived up to his reputation as the rubber-faced Jim Carrey
of the local theatre scene.
His sibey heow
(coquettish) rendition as Widow Neo
was hilarious as he juggled between three jobs as a junk mail distributor
, Tiger Beer auntie
and MLM sales representative
just to send her good-for-nothing
school-dropout son, Jack
) back to school and to pay off her debts with tua hiiiia
(Big Brother), the loan shark
from Batu Pahat
When tua hiiiia
comes aknocking, Widow Neo
was left with no other options but to make Jack
sell off the bilingual family pooch, Ah Cow
returned with a bagful of Dream
instead of money, he was embroiled in an ginormous (mis)adventure involving a giant taugeh
which reaches into the clouds, Bamboo
, the Housekeeper
, a snoring Giant
who wears CROCS
shoes, a Singing Harp
) and a Goose
that lays Salted Eggs
, Century Eggs
, Easter Eggs
and Golden Eggs
Come join the rest of the kaypoh
neighborhood as Jack
and Widow Neo
rediscovers the true meaning of happiness
and of course, love
Here's Widow Neo
and her neighbours galloping away on the iGallop
I especially like this line from one of the song when Jack
was asked to kiss Bamboo
to prove his love: "wah lau! wah kau! wah piang! like that call love meh?"
