You must, you must, you must watch Broadway Beng. Spare $35 – $50 and an hour and a half of either Monday or Tuesday night, and let Sebastian Tan make you laugh till your sides hurt.
It is odd, this ‘concept’ – as Sebastian calls the idea that turned into this show – of what we know as ‘Bengism‘ and theatre: marrying Broadway showtunes with Hokkien torch songs. But whaddafuck, it is works!
But I think Broadway Beng ‘is works’ because of Sebastian’s impeccable comic timing, his mastery of the Hokkien tongue and the dulcet tones of his made-for-Broadway singing voice.
The show ends its run on Tuesday.
