Nothing is Taboo at Avenue Q

Homosexuality, existentialism, bigotry, racism, sluts who steal your boyfriends, post-college quarter life crises, unrequited love and more first world problems… heavy issues to tackle in any art form, but there is one musical, yes, musical, that manages to deliver that and more in the form of crass cursing puppets in a parallel world known as Avenue Q.

“Boom” by Jean Tay

LIFE! Theatre Awards "Best Original Script" winner Jean Tay takes on a subject close to every true-blue Singaporean's heart - Land. BOOM puts our property woes into perspective, through tales we have been familiar with. The ageing heartlander (Fanny Kee) - unwilling to sell the home she has grown to love. The conniving property agent (Andrew Lua) - eager to make a quick buck and the idealistic civil servant (Erwin Shah Ismail) - assigned with the herculean task of relocating graves.
