From fun, light-hearted numbers to downright emotional narratives, these local musicals filled with a cast of triple threats are certainly worth a revival. In the mood to catch our local actors, singers and dancers in action? Don't miss the Singapore Theatre Festival this July.  RECOMMENDED:  Upcoming performing arts events in Singapore

The best art zines and independent magazines in Singapore

Print is not dead – and the Singapore Art Book Fair clearly shows that people are still willing to shell out for zines and mags. It's a way for young creatives to birth ideas that can then make waves all over the world. Unlike your average bookstore magazine, independent zines centre on underground topics that are usually left untouched by the mainstream. Conveyed through illustrations, photographs, and texts – it's basically Tumblr in book form sans all the gifs. Here are some of Singapore’s freshest titles to catch at the weekend fair.
