The LKY Musical《光耀建国路》

About This Project

OUE Presents The LKY Musical

Tue, 21 Jul – Sun, 16 Aug 2015 @ Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands

The LKY Musical is an original play with an epic span and tremendous emotional depth. It explores the tumultuous times of pre-independence Singapore, an era rich in drama.

Central to the play is the figure of Lee Kuan Yew whose life, political battles and enduring relationship with his wife form the crux of the story. 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 balanced on a knife-edge.

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 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.

Starring Adrian Pang as Lee Kuan Yew, Sharon Au as Kwa Geok Choo and introducing Benjamin Chow as Lim Chin Siong.
