Hong Kong stage classic I Have A Date With Spring to run in Singapore in May
Published on Apr 15, 2014 11:41 AM
Hong Kong dramatist Raymond To's popular stage classic, I Have A Date With Spring, will be enjoying a revival in Singapore more than 20 years after its debut.
This incarnation of the 1992 show, directed by Clifton Ko, 55, will feature Hong Kong stars Alice Lau, 45, Eliza Chan, 59, Louisa So, 46, and Michelle Yim, 58 - all veterans of the stage and screen. It will run at the Resorts World Theatre from May 23 to 25.
The nostalgia-laden work traces the lives and friendships of four cabaret singers at the Flower Palace Nightclub in 1960s Hong Kong.
It begins with the night when singer Butterfly Yiu (singer-actress Lau) is given a chance to take centre stage after another star performer is stranded at another venue due to the 1967 Hong Kong Leftist Riots.
