I was at the opening night with my friend Joey at the MasterCard Theatres!
We really had good seats and good view of the stage performances.
If you're really into this.. I suggest you get at least the A Reserve seats at the centre and enjoy the show!
This is during the curtain call when all the performers came out to show their gratitude.
It was really a very nice musical with many unforgettable songs like this...
Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
I truly enjoyed the show throughout.. sitting back and simply just listen and appreciate every moment! So was my friend, Joey who said its a Superb musical!
