As You Like It

As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most glorious and sunniest comedies. Set in a romantic woodland—the Forest of Arden—the play is about a youthful search for identity, love and happiness revolving around the lively character Rosalind. She sets the tone of the play and is among Shakespeare’s most brilliant heroines.

We have set this production in Singapore and Malaysia in 1965, just as Singapore is about to be exiled from the Malayan Union and set adrift to become a wholly independent state. So, this production celebrates a crucial and confusing episode in Singapore’s bicentennial history. Shakespeare’s Forest of Arden become the jungles of Malaysia, where an exiled politician, chastened by nature, returns to assume power by play’s end and all onstage are married and celebrate new unions. Asian Arden becomes a magical wonderland where dappled sunlight and the music and sounds of nature refresh the human spirit and make miracles possible.

Brothel Street

It is common to find bands that play unplugged covers of rock music. It is also common to find bands that use vocal harmonies. What sets Brothel Street apart is their interpretation of rock standards with unique arrangements for guitars and three-part vocal harmonies.

The band’s repertoire focuses on songs that define the richest era of rock and roll. The music of The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, CSNY, CCR, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Queen, Eric Clapton, Queen and many more greats comes to life in an unusual and evocative manner through a unique blend of guitars, bass and vocal harmonies.

Brothel Street debuted in Singapore in 2011. Their upcoming concert will showcase their evolution as a band and bring to life a story of great rock music, from the 1970s to the contemporary.

Bipin, Madhav, Ravi and Swapnil are all working professionals with regular day jobs but with a common passion for the music they play. The four met at a party at mutual friend’s house in Singapore in 2010. Guitars were brought out, and a lively jam session led to a close friendship and the formation of the band. The name “Brothel Street” only acknowledges the location where they met!

Brothel Street
Bipin Balakrishnan - Vocals
Madhav Aney - Acoustic guitar, vocals
Ravi Gopinath - Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, vocals
Swapnil Mishra - Bass guitar

An Evening With Devin Townsend

LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that heavy music virtuoso, Devin Townsend, will make his much-anticipated debut performance in Singapore on 18 September, 2019, at Gateway Theatre, Black Box!

The 'An Evening With Devin Townsend' features a selection of Townsend’s tracks from throughout his career, along with a Q&A session where fans will be able to ask him questions about his career and new album ’Empath’.

Townsend stated on his site, “The past decade of relentless touring with DTP had been something that caught up with me in a big way, and as a result I felt I needed to step back from that world and analyze myself and make this music before stepping onto a stage again."

“The time has come however for me to take the next step in my career, and when asked about how I would like to do so, I decided the first thing I would do was a very intimate run of shows that allows me to play my music stripped back to just me and a guitar”, he added. Pertaining to his shows, Townsend said, “The shows are at nice venues, and include a spoken word element with questions from the audience as well as aspects of my entire career represented in this one show.”

“Before I tour with a band again, I wanted to have the opportunity to play for you, and meet up with the people who not only have made my work possible, but inspire me to continue. In a world of computers and social media, to be stripped of all the bells and whistles is a very important step for my reintroduction to the live concert world. I truly hope you'll join me and I look forward to being the most honest I can be with you at these special shows.”

Don’t miss Devin Townsend's intimate acoustic performance!
