I’m not a musical theatre buff by any stretch but I really enjoyed Magical Musicals showing now in Sunway Lagoon Amphitheatre. It is a high quality production with a cast of leads from the West End in London, a talented team of international dancers, including a few from Malaysia. The show had songs from popular musicals. It had dancing. It had fireworks. It even had a Bhangra percussion group!
Check out some of the rehearsals, sneak peaks, and reviews for a taste. I think if you enjoy Glee, Moulin Rouge, Mama Mia, etc you will definitely enjoy Magical Musicals. The amphitheater wasn’t full which is a shame I thought – but on the other hand it meant that Pei Chyi and I could move closer to the stage.
Special thanks to @TourismSelangor for giving Pei Chyi the tickets in their Twitter contest. Follow them, they may still be giving out tickets! Otherwise you can purchase your tickets from AirAsiaRedTix.com
P.S. If you’re a arts and theatre noob like me (I’m not shy to admit it!) a musical theatre is basically a story told through song and dance. It’s not as boring as it sounds. Really.
