Bed, Boys and Beyond - a Musical Theatre Revue from KL


I had the pleasure of meeting Australian singer Zoe Taylor when I attended Dr. Michela Bertagonolli's masterclasses in KL back in July. Talented, affable and blessed with a gorgeous lyric soprano with tremendous flexibility to maneuver the finer corners of Juliette's Watlz, she seems to be one who is born for the stage.

I am glad to know that she will be bringing her act from Singapore on 6 to 8 September 2012, as part of an programme by the Arts House to present acts from across the Causeway. Its a song-and-dance cabaret about an Australian girl who goes to KL and meets new friends. Here's more information:


BEDS, BOYS and BEYOND
a Cabaret Concert about relationships, dreams, desires, travels and the heart

Starring
Elvira Arul, Tria Aziz and Zoe Taylor

with Llew Marsh on piano
and Rohnie Tan on violin

Choreography by Zoe Taylor
Creative and Music Direction by Llew Marsh

A small town Australian Girl moves to Kuala Lumpur and meets two locals.

The first is a Malay Girl who seems to be the conservative head-scarf wearing type whilst the other is an Indian Girl who thinks she's a soul sista. But are they really what they seem?

Through songs from the musical theatre repertoire they exchange anecdotes and stories about relationships, dreams and desires about the opposite sex and what it really means to be home in a heartwarming and hilarious evening of song, comedy and dance.

Featuring solos, duets, trios and new arrangements of songs by Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Sir Elton John, Stephen Schwartz, Stephen Sondheim, Kander and Ebb and taken from musicals such as Chicago, Cabaret, Grease, Footloose, Jekyll and Hyde, Rent and many more, this show brings you a team of award winning talents from the Australian and Kuala Lumpur arts scene right here to Singapore.

Starring Elvira Arul (Dreamgirls, VIMA Best Female Vocalist), Tria Aziz (The Wizard of Oz, Winner of NTV7's Audition), Zoe Taylor (Opera In The Alps, Anything Goes, The Sound of Music, Fame, Grease) and put together by Llew Marsh (Universal Studios Singapore, London Touring Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar), this promises to be a night of music, tears and laughter you will definitely want to be at!
