I hope to share this as early as I could but because I was bound for Bangkok right after the show, I wasn’t able to. Now that I’m back, I hope to get this piece done so that you all don’t miss this great opportunity to catch “The Secret”, Jay Chou’s Jukebox Musical.
About “The Secret”- Jay Chou’s Jukebox Musical
Jay Chou’s “The Secret”, is a ground-breaking new Chinese musical blending the power of Jay Chou’s pop music with his award-winning film, into a fantastic engaging new Broadway musical format. Created by a Tony award-winning Broadway team, “The Secret” is a romantic, funny, heart-warming story about love and family; bridging time and space.
My Personal Thoughts & Opinions
I really enjoyed the production throughout and there were many moments when I broke out in laughter and tears. The casts did a wonderful job of engaging the audience and I really wouldn’t mind watching the show a second time. If you have watched Jay Chou’s movie, “Secret”; you might find the plot of the musical to be rather similar. However, not everything in the musical is the same as the movie and furthermore, the experience of watching a musical is definitely different from watching a movie. There were even times when I unknowingly started humming and singing to Jay Chou’s songs during the musical just because I was so immersed in the performance.
This is a passion, friendship, love, family and youth filled musical not to be missed! You will laugh, you will cry and you will sing; so get ready for a really good show and standby some tissue papers.
If you have not caught The Secret, Jay Chou’s Jukebox Musical; don’t miss this opportunity and book your tickets as the show closes this Sunday!
