Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert   Hold your horses if you think this musical centres around a lady named Priscilla, and that she lives like royalty in the desert. Well, that’s what I thought when I first saw the title of this musical.  Thanks to my overzealous desire to discover what lies behind that title, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, I learned from the internet that it tells of the struggles faced by a community often discriminated by the masses in society: the LGBTQ community.  Through media such as musicals and plays, alternative voices can finally be heard. With secrets spilled...

This year’s theme was all about “walking the equator”, but I wasn’t exactly sure what that meant until I was drowning in confessional poetry, deprecatory monologues, and spoken word all weekend. Here’s what you missed and why you should anticipate Lit Up 2015.    Teater Kini Berseri   A Balinese troupe performing out of Indonesia for the first time, performers from Teater Kini Berseri were truly entertaining to watch. On Launch Night, the audience were treated...

About Pangdemonium's Frozen I searched for “Frozen” on Google and on page eight of the search results I still end up with “Frozen - Netflix”. It’s exasperating, and really makes one wonder if people ever search for anything outside of the movie. I attempted again with “Frozen the play” and I got one Wikipedia entry on the correct result but the nine other hits on the page still revolved around Elsa and Anna. Therefore, it is absolutely okay to assume that Pangdemonium will be staging the Frozen. It is also fine if you got all excited, thinking this is the time to...

Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer Life (1990-2005)   I haven’t lived that many years, but this is by far the most heart-warming and provocative exhibition I’ve been to.
