Meet Sinbad the Sailor, also known as the Robin Hood of pirates. He’s docked his ship in a new port but something is fishy about this new place…the King seems to be under the influence of an evil spell and no joy is to be seen or heard throughout the land. Laughter, music and jokes are forbidden and anyone caught in the act is tortured or executed. Being the swashbuckling hero he is, Sinbad embarks on an adventure to save the ill-fated King. He needs to rescue his sailors, defeat the evil forces, and what is an adventure without the element of love? As such, Sinbad, with his charming heroic persona, attracts the attention of the beautiful Princess Yasmin.
In an attempt to look behind the scenes of the latest musical to hit KL, we sat down with charming actors Mikey Hart and Pearl Herbert who play Sinbad and Princess Yasmin, to gain some insight into the production. Hailing from Australia, Hart and Herbert make a fun addition to the Sinbad family. Being new to the country, the two seem to have built a harmonious chemistry that translates both on and off stage. However it is the immense respect they have for Joe Hasham, the Director of the musical that caught our attention. Throughout the interview, one could not miss the admiration the two had for the Hasham, waxing lyrical on how their creative energy and ideas were never shoved aside during rehearsals. Since its introduction to the cast, the script has undergone numerous alterations, slowly moulding into the masterpiece that will take the country by storm over the next two months.
