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.
“Army Daze 2”, the sequel to “Army Daze”, is finally here, 30 years after the original. Written by Michael Chiang (who wrote the first “Army Daze”) and directed by Beatrice Chia-Richmond, the musical comedy sees the return of the original characters in “Army Daze”, as well as a crop of fresh faces for the new generation. It features Don Richmond as the composer and Annie Pek as the producer.
The musical features Hayley and Jayley Woo taking turns to play Cutie Chef in different months. Other stars include Ko Eun Hee (Sexy Chef), Woo Young Wook (Green Chef), and Lee Sung Min (Iron Chef). Adapted from the Korean production “CHEF”, the performance sees two groups of chefs racing against each other to create a dish — chilli crab and bibimbap.
