The LKY Musical tells the dramatic story of Singapore’s first Prime Minister, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. It follows his life from his pre-war days as an idealist student through his transformation into a powerful political leader fighting for Singapore’s independence. Beginning with the challenge of surviving the Japanese Occupation through his years as a Cambridge student, his return to Singapore as a young lawyer, the formation of the PAP, and the political struggle with the communists. It ends with the failure of our merger with Malaya.
It is a journey of personal triumphs and setbakcs – His lifelong friendships with those who would become Singapore’s founding fathers. His Courting and eventual break with Lim Chin Siong, a political ally who became his fiercest opponent, and his love and partnership with the woman who made everything possible, Mdm Kwa Geok Choo.
