The team behind June’s ‘Super Kam and the League of Extraordinary Femmes’ swaps capes and superpowers for heartbreak and lust this month in the Joanne Kam and Tony Eusoff-starring ‘Romantic Fools’. Featuring cameos by Chelsia Ng, Iedil Putra, Megat Sharizal and Sarah Shahrum, this 120-minute comic revue explores the crazy little thing called love through 12 bite-sized two-character sketches, which tell amusing tales of romance, relationships, dates and awkward situations plaguing the infatuated.
Directed by Reza Zainal Abidin for the Malaysian stage, ‘Romantic Fools’ is one of underrated New York playwright Rich Orloff’s most popular works, which has enjoyed over 30 productions across the globe. With producers citing ‘Friends’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother’ as the show’s comical styling influences, the audience will be in for a treat if shades of Ross and Rachel’s iconic ‘We were on a break!’ moment or Barney’s meandering ways are brought to life in this highly anticipated comedy.
