‘Tun Mahathir’ the musical, we kid you not
Satu lagi projek Barisan Nasional proposed three years ago by the Information, Communication and Culture Minister will be realised soon.
The musical is to be staged from Sept 24 to Oct 4 at Istana Budaya. See this Bernama story just out.
“The dilemmas and achievements throughout his 22 years as Prime Minister will be portrayed through dialogue, songs and dance suited to facts approved by Tun Dr Mahathir himself,” said the producer of the musical Siti Rohaya Attan.
Siti Rohaya was previously (some years ago) an Utusan reporter; it figures & that’s why we’ve highlighted in bold the Utusan-ish portion of her comment — you can take the reporter out of Utusan but you can’t take the Utusan training out of her, it seems.
This actor will play the great One. He still needs to wear a plastic nose though to bring it up to Kutty size, like Nicole Kidman did when she played Virginia Woolf.
This actress will play the ex-’First-First Lady’ — the double 1st because she was the first spouse to have been so fawned upon. Our kaki bodek MSM made up the title for her and similarly kissed ass the First Family, First Daughter & Co. They didn’t have a First Kittykat back then.
This fler determined the play’s storyline.
Like they say, a fool and his money are soon parted.
