About

Set in Singapore in the mid-sixties, Beauty World is a musical melodrama about the adventures of a small town girl in the big city. A mysterious jade pendant brings an innocent young girl to a colourful cabaret in Singapore, where she hopes to locate her long-lost father. Along the way, she meets up with her dotty pen-friend, crosses the path of a vindictive cabaret singer, and learns some heartbreaking truths about love and life (not necessarily in that order). Set to an original score, the comedy is an affectionate tribute to the Chinese soap operas that the playwright and composer grew up with in the sixties, both at the cinema and on TV.
