梁文福's songs were cleverly weaved into the the whole storyline. Especially like the part where A-Le was remembering the conversation he have had with Xiao Jing at the beach. (Xiao Jing is dead, so she is a spirit and a fragment of a memory in the musical ) It was very tender . No crying, juz very tender and warm moment =P
Thought the recitation of a poem at the beginning of the show was brilliant. Its help to set the mood of the whole musical.
I like poetry, even though I don't often understand the deeper meaning to it all. Love the beautifully composed sentence. Quite a lot of feeling and emotion been poured into juz a few short phrases.
Here is one from the musical, I think it is from EE Cumming but I am not certain.
The winter of death numbs a lover's pain,
The autumn of dreams lies awake in vain,
The summer of life sings its passing song,
And spring comes again......with courage to hope,
and go on.
" If there are seasons I would see snow, but not around here...."
