MUD the Musical - Our Story of Kuala Lumpur is performed daily at Panggung Bandaraya (KL City Theatre). The theatre is housed in the heritage Sultan Abdul Samad Building built in 1902. The building was originally the Kuala Lumpur Sanitary Board under British Malaya. The theatre is just across Jalan Raja from Dataran Merdeka.
Since the premiere performance in Jul 2014, the audience has been growing steadily due to positive public response.
Excitement and anticipation while waiting for the show to begin. The ornately decorated theatre seats 250 people and is very comfortable.
MUD the Musical tells the story of Kuala Lumpur in a nearly hour long show about the multiracial friendship of (left to right) Meng, Mamat and Muthiah.
It all began with people congregating in Kuala Lumpur to build a better future from the tin ore buried in the muddy pools where Sungai Lumpur (now Sungai Gombak) and Sungai Kelang converge.
Many things happened - much sweat and tears were shed before the Kuala Lumpur metropolis we see today rise from the murky mud pools.
In 1881, a great fire razed the fledgling town to the ground forcing the city pioneers to rebuild Kuala Lumpur from smoking embers.
Not long after, another natural disaster swallowed and washed the newly rebuilt city away.
Won't tell you what this scene is about. Come and experience it for yourself ;-D
But, through every trial and tribulation, KLites always rise up to the occasion with unity and unflappable spirit.
It's an inspiring and uplifting story. Every set back merely sets the stage for yet another triumph of the human spirit.
I like it that the show included a few interactive segments with the audience. The appreciative audience was invited onto the stage with the artistes to join in a rousing village celebration together.
Haha, I got to take a picture with the talented artistes ;-D
I even got one backstage picture with the friendly artistes before the show hehe :-D
I've seen MUD twice and enjoyed it every time.
The fascinating story of Kuala Lumpur was told simply - it's captivating and entertaining without any need for embellishment. The artistes were brimming with infectious, passionate energy. The singing and acting were powerful and moving. The backdrops, props and costumes were all brilliantly thought out and put together.
If you visit KL and did not see MUD the Musical, you ought to regret it ;-D
"Tomorrow begins today!"
Thank you Tourism Malaysia and Grand Millennium Hotel Kuala Lumpur for hosting my visit to KL.
