A Filipino team will be at the helm of a musical on Singaporeans striving to build a nation.
The musical, planned for April next year, is to mark the re-opening of the iconic Capitol Theatre.
It promises to feature prominent moments in founding father Lee Kuan Yew's life and career as he helped shape Singapore pre-independence.
It is a worthy subject, especially since next year will be Singapore's 50th birthday.
Titled Singapura - The Musical, it will be helmed by a Filipino team from The 4th Wall Theatre Company, which is based in the Philippines.
But can a crew of foreigners authentically and accurately portray a Singapore story?
Singapura's Filipino director, Mr Loy Arcenas, is confident of pulling it off.
He was previously based in New York, where he worked on Broadway as a set designer for award-winning plays like Love! Valour! Compassion! and Once On This Island.
