So went the SMS message from Sebastian Tan last Monday. If you didn’t already know, he’s performing in his solo show, ‘Broadway Beng’, where he sings musical theatre hits from the biggest shows staged on Broadway and on London’s West End.
Sebastian Tan is dying to tell us all about the experience. â€œI learnt a lot about how the English donâ€™t know how to ‘lim teh’ or ‘lim jiu’ or talk properly to ‘lim peh’!â€
Now freshly restored to his Singapore-Hokkien, born-and-bred-in-Redhill roots, Sebastian will ponder the differences of all things East and West with songs like Iâ€™m a Ge Tai God and other great songs for the whole Fu*kien Family.

But just how Beng is Sebastian Tan? Surely you’d imagine someone as uncouth as to be described as a Beng wouldn’t be able to pass muster at an audition, much less cut it as a practitioner in musical theatre.
We thought it’d be apt to have Sebastian on the mrbrown show, as a guest of Johnny’s Zhng My Car. We were right. Sebastian outgunned Johnny in the Hokkien stakes throughout the session.
