I Have A Date With Spring / dama orchestra

Possibly the best Canto musical we have. The musical was based on a play by Raymond To Kwok Wai and was adapted into a film of the same name in 1994, directed by the under-rated Clifton Ko Chi Sum. The film had some of the better actresses (most of them grads from HK's Rep Theatre school) such as Law Koon Lan, Lau Ngar Lai and So Yuk Wah.

In the 14th Annual Hong Kong Film Awards, the film was heavily nominated and ended with 3 trophies:

  • Winner - Best Supporting Actress (Law Koon-Lan)
  • Winner - Best New Artist (Alice Lau Ar-Lai)
  • Winner - Best Screenplay (Raymond To Kwok-Wai
They missed out on the following but being nominated for a musical is a pretty big thing already:
  • Nomination - Best Picture
  • Nomination - Best Actress (Alice Lau Ar-Lai)
  • Nomination - Best Supporting Actress (Fung Wai-Hung)
  • Nomination - Best New Artist (Hui Fan)
  • Nomination - Best Original Score (Lee Hong-Gum, Wan Hol-Geen)

I thought I will be among the first few to book the tickets, but guess what, the better seats for the firat wekend are all gone. Had to book for Wednesday 14 October. Will be looking forward to watch and hear Tan Soo Suan, and my good friend Fang Chyi perform. See you there, book early! You have been warned.
