Too good to be true? Nope. This is not a drill. BIG GIRL’S DON’T CRY will truly hit the Singapore stage this October 20–21.
For the first time in three years, the British Theatre Playhouse announced that their latest musical would be performed in Singapore. Now that COVID-19 restrictions are slowly being eased, music enthusiasts and lovers alike can experience once again the beauty that is of being physically transported into the musical world of BIG GIRL’S DON’T CRY at the Grand Ballroom, One Farrer Hotel, Singapore.
It would surely be a night to remember as the internationally acclaimed group, The Eastcoast Boys, will take you back in time with their timeless performance of the iconic hits that propelled Frankie Vallie and The Four Seasons into stardom in the 60s and 70s—allowing them to sell an incredible 100 million records worldwide at that time.
As per the Founder of the British Theatre Playhouse: “BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY is a feel-good show that has been performed many times in London’s West End during its 15 years, including at the Lyric Theatre, the Dominion Theatre, and the Savoy Theatre, and tours the major UK regional theatres year in, year out. it is a perfect antidote for the post-pandemic era to transport you to another world of love, joy, and connection.” With music that is truly irresistible and relatable, those who will watch the performance live will surely have a wonderful evening.
As a great supporter of artists and original artworks, One Farrer Hotel happily collaborated with the British Theater Playhouse and supported the arts – which they deemed as vital in the aesthetic experience of living – and music – which is considered a universal language. According to Dr. Peng Chung Mien, the Director of One Farrer Pte. Ltd., “It is a bonus to incorporate performing arts and make a difference in people’s lives.”
BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY Will Soon Hit the Singapore Stage
The world-renowned musical promises a pitch-perfect performance from the four musical performers taking on the persona of The Four Seasons (slated to sing the iconic sounds of New Jersey’s finest and tasked with narrating the story). The audience can look forward to getting serenaded by the nostalgic hits of the past, such as Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Rag Doll, My Eyes Adore You, Oh, What A Night, Big Girls Don’t Cry, and many other songs specifically featured in the musical.
All these timeless songs of the 60s and 70s will make an epic comeback in the award-winning musical, Jersey Boys, which was later adapted into a film of the same title in 2014 directed by Clint Eastwood. Because of its prolific presence in pop culture, the song Big Girl’s Don’t Cry was also featured in many movies, including the opening scene of the classic 1987 movie, Dirty Dancing, 1979 The Main Event, and 1990 The Mermaids.
Get ready to be blown away by the synchronized performance that will surely inspire you to sing, hum, and dance along—just like they always do with their national and international tours. Their recent performance in the United Kingdom has garnered rave reviews from the audience and positive feedback from the press.
This time, the British Theatre Playhouse is more than excited to bring such a fun-filled, memorable experience to the audiences in Singapore. BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY will feature leading stars Damion Scarcella (known for his appearance in many British and Australian productions), Lorne Taylor (a musical theatre performer from Rhondda Valleys in South Wales), Stuart Innes (member of the cast of BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY since its conceptualization in 2008), and Tristan Ward (trained at the London School of Musical Theatre).
