If you haven’t caught Starlight Express at the Marina Bay Sands MasterCard Theatre, don’t miss this chance because the last run for it is on 24 November 2013 [Sunday]!
One of the best-loved, longest-running, and most unique musicals in theatrical history, Starlight Express has delighted audiences from its sell-out tour around the UK.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock ‘n’ roller-skates sensation is one of his most successful musicals. Light years ahead of the rest, Starlight Express is a futuristic tale about love, rivalry, and hope in the face of adversity. The show delivers two hours of speed, energy, 3 dimensional spectacle, daredevil stunts and turbo-charged excitement.
Originally conceived as a cartoon story for his own children, Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece tells the story of a child’s dream, in which toy trains come to life and compete to become the fastest engine in the world, while also competing for the affections of the glamorous coaches with whom they must ‘team-up’ with.
With the entire cast of 28 on roller skates, Starlight Express will amaze audiences with its speed and skill, showcasing extraordinary roller-choreography from the renowned West End choreographer Arlene Phillips. The story hurtles along against a backdrop of high-tech staging, 3 dimensional projection, special effects and a pulsating score. The soundtrack by high-voltage team of Lloyd Webber/David Yazbek draws inspiration from numerous music styles, from rhythm and blues, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, rap, country and western, and contemporary pop acts.
The challenge of designing and creating costumes that resemble different types of trains, while providing full movement and a degree of protection for the actor, resulted in ground-breaking designs. The show’s dazzling costumes and sets, by the legendary West End designer John Napier, have won numerous awards.
The original West End production of Starlight Express electrified the theatre world in 1984, running for almost 18 years. Since then, there have been a further seven major productions, including Broadway, USA/Canada Tour, Las Vegas, Japan, Australia/Japan Tour, Mexico and Germany, where the show is still running after 25 years. So far more than 25 million people worldwide have enjoyed a thrilling ride aboard Starlight Express.
Don’t miss this opportunity to catch this ground-breaking show that burst onto the theatre scene in the 80s! Not only is the show unique, being performed entirely on roller skates, but the story is a powerful lesson about the triumph of the human spirit. It’s truly an ultimate feel-good show!
