An afternoon of Broadway music

I missed the Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical last year.

I was kind of regretted because it was a great musical production led by 2 remarkable artists — Tiara Jacquelina and Stephen Rahman Hughes.

Then I saw this show called “Showstoppers” on the MPO season brochure featuring no one else but Stephen Rahman Hughes (pronounce as “hyooz”, I checked the dictionary) as the soloist singing famous songs from famous Broadway musicals.

How could I miss the chance to listen to him singing again? The tickets were sold out a week before the show but I managed to grabbed 4 tickets before that.

The show was indeed phenomenal. Song choice was good, orchestra was great and the singer was awesome!

He is definitely a very good baritone. I particularly love a few songs he sang like I Dreamed a Dream from Les Misérables (previously sang by Susan Boyle), Maria from West Side Story and The Music of the Night from The Phantom of the Opera.

Besides, I really enjoyed the madly version of songs from The Sound of Music performed by the orchestra conducted by John Georgiadis from London.

After the show, I rushed to queue up for autography session and I was the second person in the line.

Definitely a great show to watch. Though the bling bling purple shoes he wore that day was a little bit distracting.
