Bollywood Dreams Premieres at the Kuala Lumpur Performance Arts Centre from 24 March 2021. Through a pandemic, a transnational collaboration, countless Zoom rehearsals. Bollywood Dreams is a labour of love that was almost two years in the making.
Despite the odds, it will finally premiere to a live audience this week. Directed by Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican, Bollywood Dream’s heart-warming story of two boys with big dreams is by Mark Beau de Silva (Malaysia) and co-adapted by Tilottama Pillai (New York).
As KLPac emerges from a 5-month closure battered but hopeful, they invite you to be part of their recovery and help rebuild them by being the musical's very first audience.
Set in the 1980s Sungai Petani, two brothers; Pappu and Babu live with their ‘Amma’. ‘Go. Study. Play. Anything, but quietly. I do not want to hear you’, Amma says. And so, the two boys study and so the boys play, oh and how they play! Of heroes and heroines, villains and sidekicks. Of Amitabh and Rajini, and every movie star that has graced the silver screen! In between the humdrum need to clean the household laundry and excel in times table, Pappu and Babu escape into a world of epic backdrops and thumping music, of chorus girls and backup dancers.
Will the boys’ dreams come true, or is Bollywood, forever out of reach.
