Their entire lives have collapsed as they slowly come to their senses and a new awakening.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have never doubted their senses, are in a state of deep shock.

This after they saw a photo showing actor-comedian Henry Thia posing beside Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

One Singaporean, Kwa Teo Kwee, said: “This is highly unsettling, as I used to think that all the funny things Khaw Boon Wan said was the result of Henry Thia taking his place and having a ball of a time on his behalf.”

“This just means it was actually Khaw who was saying all the funny things for real.”

However, other Singaporeans said this might be a blessing in disguise.

Kee Zho Hee, another local, said: “Maybe this just might all be a good thing. It could very well be Khaw Boon Wan’s exit from politics.”

“He can join showbiz and be Hui Ge’s double.”

“Since they are both professionally hilarious.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life who have the welfare of others in their hearts, have come out to encourage local actor Henry Thia to find ways to differentiate himself from new Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after Minister Khaw, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the local actor also known as Hui Ge, was previously put on 24-hour suicide watch surveillance as many Singaporeans have been encouraging him to commit suicide.

One Singaporean, See Baey Suay, said: “This is really for Henry Thia’s own good.”

“Henry Thia is an innocent party. I wouldn’t feel good being mistaken for Khaw Boon Wan all the time and people approaching me out of the blue to ask me to commit suicide.”

However, other Singaporeans said this might be a blessing in disguise.

Kee Zho Hee, another local, said: “Maybe this just might all be a good thing. It could very well be Khaw Boon Wan’s exit from politics.”

“He can join show biz and be Hui Ge’s double.”

“Since they are both professionally hilarious.”

Musical is based on a half-true story about a Singaporean politician who made good by committing hara-kiri.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to watch political theatre can now look forward to a brand new musical production, Khaw Boon Wan: The Musical.

Based on a true story, the show would chart the life story of Minister Khaw Boon Wan, which is a tale of resilience as it strives to portray how a politician refused to bow to public pressure to kill himself.

However, some details of the plot had to be changed to make it more palatable for a paying audience.

Composer and director of the musical, Prick Lee, who has helmed award-winning shows such as French Fries Paradise, said: “We had to embellish the ending though. If we remember correctly, the true story somewhat ended on a low note: The politician didn’t commit suicide.”

“We tried out the pilot run for the show where the politician lived and it failed badly with the test audience. They feedback that the ending was a letdown as the politician lived to tell the tale.”

“So, for this musical, we not only made sure the politician commit hara-kiri on stage by falling on a knife to bring the story to its logical conclusion, the plot has the politician kill himself live on YouTube to a streaming audience worldwide who get to witness the viral demise first-hand.”

“It will bring the audience to a cathartic ending, so people who pay $120 and upwards for a ticket will leave the theatre feeling like they got something positive out of the experience.”

Critics have submitted advance praise for the musical. Calling it “painfully cutting (pun intended)”, they singled out lead actor Henry Thia, a.k.a. Hui Ge, for his career-defining role as Minister Khaw.

Thia, speaking to the media, said: “This has got to be one of the toughest roles in my life. I had to constantly override my human nature to be good and beneficial to others and focus on being a politician.”

“Being an actor, I only had to act. But being a politician meant I had to act like my life depended on it. It’s not easy even for a professional actor like me.”

“Moreover, I had to learn to say things with a straight face, lie with my eyes open and train my body to physically portray the cognitive dissonance that is going on in my mind whenever I speak.”

“For example, I had to say things like, ‘People need to hara-kiri for lapses’ and then proceed not to commit suicide.”

“My years in showbiz didn’t even prepare me to be 10 percent politician.”

Audiences were also full of praise from the matinee preview.

One audience member, Kwa Teo Kwee, said: “It’s almost as if I am watching Khaw Boon Wan on stage for a minute there.”

“The resemblance is uncanny.”
