Review: Annie the musical

My tickets to Annie the musical

After months of waiting, I finally had the opportunity to catch Annie the Musical at the Sands Theater, Marina Bay Sands. I didn’t realise that Annie had two movie versions (82′ and 99′) but nothing beats the original movie Annie (1982). I remembered watching Annie on VHS during my spare time when I was still in primary school.

Now I had the privileged to catch it live on musical and the songs are all coming to me as it reminded my memories of Annie. As for the musical play, it was quite entertaining but I was as engrossed as the “Wicked”. I didn’t have that kind of goosebumps even that short burst of adrenalin rush during the performance.

David McAllister who played Oliver Warbucks had a huge role to play with the main star Annie. I somehow felt something was missing here as I was more familiar with the actual star of Oliver Warbucks in the 82′ version of Annie. In that movie, he portrayed himself as a stubborn billionaire and it took some nudging before he opened up his heart and cared of Annie’s feelings. Here in the musical, it didn’t show that challenge.

Well, to tell you frankly, there were a few changes in the musical play and I preferred the original version. The vocals were good but there were no breath taking moments where I experienced from Wicked. Annie the musical was slightly a tad down from Wicked. My highlights of the show were the props as well as this six year old Chloe Choo who played as Molly, one of the orphans. It’s not good to have a show stealer playing a minor role and out-staged Annie because of her cute antics. Verdict: 7/10

DPMM FC bounced back in style

It was the first time I have been to Bedok Stadium to catch Geylang vs DPMM FC last night. It wasn’t such a crowd but it was still fun to watch. I realised how much different the atmosphere here in Singapore compared to Brunei where thousands will turn up to catch their home team. I guess the locals in Singapore are not that keen in football or perhaps the culture has faded in the S•League.

Anyway, it was a pretty good match for DPMM FC after coming off a few consecutive defeats. Three to be exact. Their last win was back dated in May and prior to the match, the coach Vjeran Simunic was pretty worried as Shahrazen suffered an unexpected injury right before the match. DPMM FC was already handicapped with captain Rosmin’s suspension. It’s not known how serious the injury is.

It was the first time also I’ve seen Patrick Roberto Daniel Da Silva in action and he came to live in the second half by scoring two quick goals in the 51st and 53rd minute. His first goal for the club was right off a counter attack and he finished it with style. The second was off a rebound after the Geylang keeper failed to hold on to a thunderous strike by Adi Said. DPMM FC opened the deadlock on the 30th minute as defender Tales Ricarte dos Santos scored the first.

DPMM FC is now ranked 3rd in the league with one game in hand with 32 points. Albirex Niigata is now league leaders with 36 points.

DPMM FC coach is very happy with the match but still unhappy with the referee’s decision especially the penalty given to Geylang late in the game. He said that DPMM FC’s target is to be in the top 5 and he expects Albirex and Tampines Rovers to face off for the S•League title. He regarded Geylang to be a tough team and he even labeled Geylang as the Real Madrid of the S•League during their high periods.

Simunic was also pleased on how the young lads performed last night. Adi Said was given his first start for DPMM FC to feel in the shoes of his older brother Shahrazen. It will be another test for him when he gets another shot in the first team. The Croatian hopes DPMM FC can continue their momentum in the upcoming league cup this weekend.

Yay!! We also have some DPMM FC fans at Bedok Stadium

This guy was having fun while catching the match. I wasn’t sure which team he was supporting.

The new import player Silva (who replaced Rodrigo) scored twice last night and it was his first goals for the club

I watched the match with @cuterabbit84 last night. Thanks for the company :))
