Everyone wants to know how he did it? How did he bring a small country on to the world’s stage? How did he groomed a nation with no resources to become Asia’s epic-center?
Famous for his vision, his tenacity and his brilliance and well-respected for his ideology, politics and philosophies, he is also renowned for his firmness, sometimes inflexible demands in his pursuit of his goals. But there is a softer side of him, brought out by the woman who captured his heart almost 60 years ago.
The founding father of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) continues to intrigue us with his life even after his death. And what better way to celebrate his achievements than a musical about his life’s work at our nation’s 50th celebration!
The world premiere of The LKY Musical, stars stellar performers Adrian Pang and Sharon Au as Mrs Lee, and will be staged at The MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands on 21st July.
The LKY Musical follows the life of LKY from his early days at Raffles College to the founding of independent Singapore. This is a tale of high drama, intrigue, betrayal, love and loyalty. It offers new insights into the emotional struggle faced by LKY and his friends at a time when Singapore history hung in the balance.
This exciting project is the work of an international team of artists — with music by Singapore’s iconic musician and composer, Dick Lee, lyrics by Laurence Olivier Award winner Stephen Clark, book by Tony Petito and a story devised by internationally renowned Singaporean author Meira Chand. Directed by veteran London West End director Steven Dexter (Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress), this is a production that will put the drama of the Singapore Story firmly on a world platform.
