The cast members are not just sharing the stage and putting their artistic talent together in upcoming show A Stud, A Babe & A Latte Boy - they are also exchanging cultures, ideas and laughs.
“It’s about Annie, a girl who is described as nice by her friends. She is a geek who develops into a personality when the goes off to university,” said Zoe, who moved to our shores for love recently.
Annie is horrified but admits her life is was a little dull. Living under the shadow of her parents, she is expected to fulfill their expectations as a daughter. But it all changes when Annie moves to Kuala Lumpur and she gets a chance to spread her wings. Can this geek transform into a swan or is she doomed to follow through her parents plans?
“After moving to KL, she gets a chance to explore different aspects of life including love, relationships, job amidst few struggles,” added Zoe, a multitalented artist who has done her share of singing, dancing, operatics, choreographing from Melbourne.
A Stud, A Babe & A Latte Boy is Zoe’s pet project and together with Malik and Lex, they are making it their own. Based on Zoe’s housemate in university, the story is about a nerd who needs to be heard, a dud who wants to be a stud and a boy who reveals the skeletons in his closet.
A combination of a musical, opera and theatre, the show is set in a little cosy café. Zoe will be joined by Malik, who plays the stud Felix, her cool, flambouyant housemate and Lex’s alter ego Taylor, the latte boy who wins the affections of Annie.
“There will be a working bar on the set and the show will be like a pub performance,” said Malik, whose performing credits include Grave Matter (2010),Love Journey 2 (April 2011) and the latest Life Sdn Bhd 8: Human Trafficking.
Expect a variety of songs on stage including numbers from musicals such as Wicked, Singin’ In The Rain and even Glee! Also, here’s a chance to catch Zoe sing Sekadar Di Pinggiran, a song made popular by Francisca Peter.
Talented choreographer Lex is stepping out of his dancing zone with this performance. Other than a few dance numbers, he will also be singing a duet with Zoe.
“It’s a little pressuring to be working with experienced performers like Zoe and Malik – but at the same time it is very fun,” he said.
” I will be dancing in this one and Zoe will be singing in Malay so it will definitely a show to watch,” added Malik.
