Magical Musicals - A West End Production

I'd love to go for the show! I am a diehard fan of Broadway shows!! I think they're awesome!! I love watching musicals~~ Well, the only actual musical I've been to was FAME and it was super duper! It's too expensive here in Malaysia, IMO...

Well, Sunway Lagoon will be having a 90 minute production called"Magical Musicals" and there will be songs from Moulin Rouge!, Mamma Mia!, Dreamgirls, Fame, Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Footloose, We Will Rock You, West Side Story, Hairspray and even the latest television musical phenomenon, Glee! How awesome is that??

I think this would be something similar to Stars of the Musicals production back in 2001 but much more exciting!! Hey, anything with Glee is awesome! lol...

The Story

The show opens in Times Square, New York – the very heart of the Broadway Theatre District. Auditions are being held for a new show. Six budding actors leave the auditions and are all in New York for One Night Only.

Megan and Danny are a thirty-something couple from Seattle. Their relationship has reached a turning point and they are desperate to leave their hometown and work in the Big Apple.

Amber & Josh are a young couple very much in love. Although Amber is a 'ditzy' blonde, Josh worships her.

Then we have Stephanie, an actress from Baltimore who finds herself attracted to the shy Ryan.

Their story starts with an energetic opening (Don't Stop Me Now) as Stephanie explains she is from Baltimore and loves the musicals of the Sixties. When alone, Danny and Megan express their past love for each other in Tonight, joined by the others in a modern rendition of America. Josh and Amber tell the others they met whilst working on the musical Grease giving their rendition of You're the One That I Want, and Summer Nights.

The others soon notice that Ryan likes Stephanie but she explains that she is Holding Out For A Hero in her life. Uptight, Ryan decides to loosen up with Footloose. After which, Megan and Danny feel wicked and sing As Long As You're Mine and Defying Gravity. The girls then tease the boys with their version of Shakalaka Baby.

Act II opens 5 years later and the girls are starring together in Times Square as Dreamgirls. Megan and Danny on celebrating their honeymoon and as they are waiting for the girls, the boys reminisce about when they all met 5 years earlier. Danny and Josh can't believe that Ryan hasn't proposed to Amber after all this time. He says they have both been busy working apart. They all leave for the Night Club as Danny sings Go The Distance.

Once at the club, the boys lead in Night Fever whilst Stephanie taunts Ryan with If I Can't Have You. Josh urges Ryan to 'pop the question' but Ryan loses his nerve and leaves Stephanie to her own thoughts in Reflections. When they all return, Amber asks the DJ to play The Elephant Love Medley which finally gives Ryan the courage to ask Stephanie to marry him.

The concert finale sees all six stars singing their way through a medley of Glee, with a special finale covering everything from Bohemian Rhapsody to Mamma Mia!

Sounds cool! For more info abt the production, mosey over to this page!
