One of Singapore’s much-beloved musicals, Beauty World is back with a brand new cast, new director and a fresh new take! This year’s Beauty World will feature Chiang’s revised script and for the first time, it will be directed by its co-creator and composer, Dick Lee.
Beauty World first made its debut in the 1988 Singapore Arts Festival. Since its debut in 1988, the musical has enjoyed multiple re-staging, including a successful Japan tour (1992) and a record-breaking production shown live on TV (1998). Set in mid-60s Singapore, the musical comedy traces the adventures of an innocent young girl from Batu Pahat (Ivy Chan Poh Choo) who enters a seedy cabaret hoping to find her long-lost father and in the process, learns some heartbreaking truths about life and love.
Beauty World 2015 will feature an exciting cast made up of the best talents from both the theatre and television. Jeanette Aw sheds her good-girl image to play Lulu, the beautiful but vindictive cabaret queen who becomes jealous of Ivy, the innocent Kampong Girl protagonist played by Cheryl Tan. Adding to the already impressive cast is Janice Koh, who will be making her musical debut as the wise and winsome Mummy and a host of talented stage artistes Frances Lee, Joshua Lim, Timothy Wan and more.
Be there as Beauty World spins an exciting story filled with romance, revenge and retribution, before coming to a heart-breaking climax.

Being a young couple struggling with two little mouths to feed, both my husband and myself hardly have time nor the luxury to splurge on ourselves and to be honest, we have never watched a musical before and it will be awesome if we could have this opportunity to enjoy the musical together.
Thanks for the giveaway.

I want to watch Beauty World 2015 because the last time Jeanette appeared in a theatre production was in 2009 in The Peranakan Ball and I missed it. I have always hoped for a chance to watch Jeanette perform at a musical but my schedule was a problem. This time I have no problem attending it with my husband because we both love musicals.

I want to watch Beauty World 2015 because I am available on that day and I do not want to spend on any musicals until the end of 2015. Most importantly, the review by http://www.lifestinymircales.com looks good to go to be entertained. The time spent at the musical will be rewarding. 🙂
