The New Play Project: Book 1 (Review)

One piece of advice I leave to you before watching The New Play Project: Book 1 is: throw your expectations out the window. When a group of playwrights, all unique in their own talents, influences and inspirations, get together and create a show, the best thing you can do is sit back and enjoy all the stories they have to offer.

From the director who brought you the phenomenal Losertown, KLPAC’s The Actor’s Studio (TAS) Director-in-Residence Tung Jit Yang is back to debut his year-long project – The New Play Project: Book One.

In December 2017, widely renowned Malaysian lo-fi rocker and all-around troubadour Azmyl Yunor released ampang park, a whole album he recorded only on his phone. While some purists may scoff at that idea, the album is the epitome of independence and thriving all on your own.

It is the musician’s call to make something special and intimate, a gift for long-time fans and a treasure for newcomers to stumble upon.

Dr Jason Leong: On Malaysian comedy, business flights and being ‘Ambitious’

Last month alone, funny man Dr. Jason Leong had performed at the Melbourne International Comic Festival and sold out several shows. He’s performed in India, Manila, Penang, Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong and all across Malaysia. Jason has also appeared on Comedy Central Asia and won the title ‘Comedian of the Month’.

Those are just some of his many accomplishments. The homegrown Malaysian talent is consistently testing and outperforming himself and we see that clearly in his brand-new stand-up special Ambitious. If Jason’s track record hasn’t enticed you yet, be ready for new material more polished and [...]
