The Peak (Singapore) - - The Brief -

Jazz meets its match in Chi­nese getai in Pro­duced by Jonathan Lim – the brains be­hind par­ody sketch show – and theatre com­pany Bite Me Pro­duc­tions, the 105-minute in­ter­ac­tive sup­per ex­pe­ri­ence at Ital­ian restau­rant Monti cen­tres on a cat­fight be­tween two singers to reign as queen of the jazz lounge. The usurper to the throne, a getai songstress, also hap­pens to be the girl­friend of Monti’s new owner, goes the script. Her weapon? Mas­sive flirt­ing with the au­di­ence to win sup­port­ers. Says Lim: “The aes­thet­ics, themes and en­ergy of getai are a hi­lar­i­ous an­tithe­sis to jazz, al­low­ing for a real clash of the ti­tans to break out around the au­di­ence.” Guests are en­cour­aged to dress up in Roar­ing Twen­ties cos­tumes.
