Barbie LIVE!

I have to admit that Dumpling and I are both not really into Barbie. It was not until we were invited by Nuffnang that I realised that Barbie was in town for a "Live" musical. Not knowing what to expect, we decided to have a go at it and be 'surprised'. :) 

Dumpling at the Foyer area watching the 'trailer' and interviews as we tried to get a sense of what the musical is about before it starts

Waiting patiently for the show to start

The musical, to me, is definitely targeted towards the girls - Dumpling loved the stage and the costumes and it was not hard to see why. Everything was pink, colorful and pretty! Even the curtains were made of glittery fuchsia cloth.   

The story revolves around Barbie™ shooting her latest film and her best friend Teresa™ set on a Hollywood sound stage. The musical also includes Ken™ and Danny (possible love interest for Teresa™) and I was happy that the play did not go into any romantic angle; something which I feel is a tad too mature for girls of this age. :p

Barbie™ came on stage in a grand entrance wow-ing the Barbie™ fans seated around us.

What I like about the musical is that, Barbie™ used the lessons learnt from the other films which she acted in to encourage Teresa™. These scenes were acted out by Barbie™ and Teresa™ which made it more interesting as compared to having the entire storyline revolved just around Barbie™. There were costume changes for all the different tales and I was pleasantly surprised that both the lead actresses have good vocals too!
The fairytales ranged from Princess Odette  

to Mariposa and The Fairy Princess...

On the whole, it was a good experience for us. We were seated between rows of Barbie™ fans who sang along with Barbie™ in many songs. From what I can see, this is a 'must-watch' for Barbie™ fans. :) For Dumpling, it also sparked off her interest in wanting to know and read more about The Swan Lake and Mariposa and The Fairy Princess. 

Barbie is showing from 10 - 14 September at the Sands Theatre. 
Tickets are available at SISTIC
