Reliving The Moments When We Laughed & Cried To The Secret (不能说的秘密)

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Remember those days when you can't stop humming and singing to Jay Chou's song - Secret (不能说的秘密)? It was the theme song for his first ever acting role in a movie, not only did he play the lead role, he also co-wrote the movie. I still can't forget leaving the cinema heavily filled with emotions and memories of those puppy love days.
最美的不是下雨天是曾与你躲过雨的屋簷回忆的画面 在荡著秋千梦开始不甜 
你说把爱渐渐放下会走更远又何必去改变 已错过的时间你用你的指尖阻止我说再见想像你在身边 在完全失去之前
After 10 years since the movie was released, this beautiful story is now brought on stage as a musical - THE SECRET, by Beijing producer - Ivy Zhong of China Broadway Entertainment. It's highly raved in China and this April, the production will step out of the country with Singapore being the first stop. In the realm of musicals, THE SECRET is the first film production in Asia that has been deemed adaptable by Broadway, even Jay Chou himself has given pointers and was impressed how pop music can be used in a musical.

So, come travel through time with student and piano major - Ye Xiang Lun (played by Cao Yang) and his beautiful "fellow student" - Lu Xiaoyu (played by Wang Xiaomin) on this musical adaptation of the movie.

A sneak peek of the musical...

Though almost similar to the original movie, the Broadway creative team have also added their own touch to incorporate Jay's songs like Clear Stars (星晴), Listen to Mother's Words (听妈妈的话), Simple Love (简单爱), The Tea Grandpa Makes (爷爷泡的茶), Rooftop (屋顶), Dandelion's Promise (蒲公英的约定), Cowboy Is Very Busy (牛仔很忙), etc.

I find this musical version funnier, filled with more vigor, just in time for the summer season; and fans of Jay Chou (*like me and hubby) will definitely be humming and tapping along with the songs.

I especially love the vocals of both leads - Cao Yang being in the musical industry for awhile and Jay Chou being his idol, he embodies a young Jay when he just debuted 10 years ago; Xiaomin, on the other hand, is a popular singer in China who has won several music awards, acted in movies and dramas as well as performed on CCTV's Spring Festival Gala programmes.

Also, I'm very impressed by the stage design where perspective angles help create the 3D feel and also displaying the travel through time and space creatively. You might find that the stage is risen higher and that is because the team creates their own background tracks for them to change from scene to scene. Ain't that impressive?

I love this fresh take on musicals, how the marrying of Asia culture into Broadway productions. I'm definitely looking forward to more of such crossover works of art. Let's give them our support! Come on by MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands to catch this youthful musical before they end this weekend.
