Song of Singapore – The Swing Musical
July 13–30, 2017
by Alan Katz, Erik Frandsen, Robert Hipkens, Michael Garin and Paula Lockheart
With the off-Broadway popularity of this zany recreation of a seedy bar in Singapore, circa 1941, swing jazz music and comedy musical theatre has truly come of age. Audience members are whisked away to those heady days when the band played on while the Japanese invaders approached. The story is a wacky parody of old movies full of intrigue: fishy stolen jewels, a torch singer whose lost memory holds the key to one of the century's greatest mysteries, a sinister dragon lady, corrupt police and nonstop funny business. Throughout, the music is a hot parade of 40s parodies and pastiches (Andrews Sisters close-harmony, scat, swing, gospel) with just enough of an original twist to deliver a hilarious comic punch!
