The LKY Musical: musical at Sands Theatre

The LKY Musical, produced by Aiwei and Singapore Repertory Theatre, tells the story of Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s life, beginning with his student days and ending with Singapore’s independence in 1965. Starring Adrian Pang as Lee Kuan Yew and Kit Chan as Kwa Geok Choo, with music by Dick Lee.
Our review: “Music and history combine in a heartfelt ode to Singapore’s founding father. Following the show’s successful run in 2015, Adrian Pang reprises his role as Lee Kuan Yew and brings audiences on a journey to relive our country’s early, turbulent years. The show reminds us of the former Prime Minister’s fearless idealism – lighting a path amid war trauma and destabilising skirmishes. But for those already familiar with the past events, the LKY musical failed to add a unique flair in terms of storytelling and memorable songs. Despite this, jarring headlines flashing across the screens propelled the narrative forward, and actors created visually stunning mise-en-scenes by moving across three stage levels. Moments of comedy also buoyed the serious subject matter. As the PAP prepares to hand over its mantle to the next generation of leaders, the LKY Musical prompts us to reflect on past struggles as we look toward the future. This is a timely watch.” Eunice Sng
