We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again – May is a massive month for performing arts. Between the barrage of jokes at PJ Laugh Fest and the poignancy of ‘Parah’, another theatre show worth checking out this month is Masakini Theatre Company’s ‘Chow Kit Road! Chow Kit Road!’.
Last Wednesday’s 10th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards, the country’s most prestigious performing arts accolade organised by Kakiseni, marked the end of the maiden KakiSENI Festival, which transformed Pavilion KL into a bona fide performing arts Mecca.
The city's monthly comedy night returns this Thursday, and it's all set to be a big one with noted local comedians Kuah Jenhan, Dr Jason Leong and Kavin Jay sharing the stage this month. Supporting the headliners on Thursday is Ismail Abdi Rahman, who's slowly but surely making a name for himself on our comedy stage.
Trust Claire Boucher to give KL its most bewildering and memorable live show in recent memory last Tuesday. The madness began half an hour after her Upfront gig was slated to start at 8pm, when the 24-year-old otherwise known as Grimes tweeted her followers that she’d be ‘a bit late’ to The Bee Publika due to a bout of food poisoning.
With a few days to go till Future Music Festival Asia, we only see it fitting to give you the lowdown on some of the festival's top acts: where they came from, why they're famous and how they got big. You can even use these bits of trivia to impress your too-cool-for-school friends as you wait for the acts to come on (and there will be a lot of waiting.)
Monthly comedy show Comedy Thursday returns to STAGE KL tomorrow with Shamaine Othman and Rizal Van Geyzel as headliners while Anuja and Hartley Pool support. As with most of our shows, there'll be an open mic-ers segment in between in which we welcome newcomers to the stage. And one open mic-er to watch is Prakash Daniel.
