    Review: 'Super Mommy' has stunning musical performances and an over-the-top drag queen

    Localised for audiences in Singapore, the Taiwan musical comedy “Super Mommy” being staged at Resort World Sentosa sees an upper middle-class family struggle when they hire a domestic helper to assist with bringing up their child. While this may have been relatable one or two decades ago, the fact that the family is wealthy enough to hire a domestic helper (cost is never an issue with them) means that their grouses never truly feel important, especially in this day and age. In fact, her performances outshine everyone else’s, to the point where you wonder why she wasn’t given the lion’s share of the musical numbers.

    REVIEW: Kumar still kills it at 50 with a heartfelt look at his life story

    The posters promised loud and over-the-top humour in Kumar’s signature style, but that sort of hilarity requires a lot of energy from the audience, something that you need to be prepared for. Predictably, Kumar came out in a flamboyant dress-cake (or is it a cake-dress) festooned with plenty of glittery little bits that you weren’t sure if you should be looking at. Kumar would occasionally explain a more subtle joke when it seemed to have flown over the audiences heads, but he was content to let the less overt jokes lie.
