It appears from the few reviews that I've read that most people have enjoyed the show. The liked the sets, the liked the costumes and they liked the music. It's also quite unanimous that Adipati stole the lover's limelight every single night.
I wish I could get a day off from the show to be able to see just what we have come up with after all those months of tears, pain and sweat. To hear that the audiences enjoyed it is certainly thrilling. I'm hoping that they're recording the thing on video so that we would have a chance to see what actually happened on stage. Must get that cute sound guy to make me a copy of some of the shows.
Personally, the piece that enjoy most is a piece that I'm not in. I really like the drum transition during the sumpahan scene. The one the ensemble goes "Melaka bercelaru, Peminangan tuanku ...". Simply brilliant. Love it every time I hear it and I'm right there in the pit when they play it. You guys rock, drum guys!!! Dance wise, naturally, it would be the 'Titah Sultan', I think that's the most playful thing in the whole musical and I really do enjoy doing that piece. Re-energises me every single time ... er ... of course that's only when I don't make any mistake in it. ;)
Watch out for me. I'm a Goddess, a Jelmaan Nenek Kebayan, Perempuan Jawa, Perempuan Kraton ... in general ... ensemble.
Two more weeks to go. Leave me a link to your reviews if you do go and watch it!
