Letter to the Editor, St. Maarten Daily Herald
What an unforgettable wonderful eveneing of laughter we enjoyed last Friday night.
If you weren’t at Maho to participate in the hilariously funny dinner mystery Hari Karaoke you really missed out. Tears were streaming from our eyes at all times since there was not one dull moment for the whole three hours.
The cast and characters were incredibly funny and totally professional, all, are well achieved actors and actresses with impressive careers. I’m sure you’ll recognize them from the movies and television.
Picture the players: a wannabe pathetic shrimp of a singer with bad hair, a slimy greedy deceiving pimp, a pathetically lovesearching child-deserting bimbo, Mr. Redneck beerguzzling beer truck driver, an aspiring nympho bombshell (of dubious porn background), and the nerdy waiter A.K.A. karaoke performer, A.K.A. drop dead gorgeous policeman.
I regret not having seen the other show, imagine what those characters have been like, believe me next I’ll be the first in line. Especially being here in St. Maarten where we can definitely do with a little bit more entertainment.
The wonderful aspect of the whole spectacle was the participation of the crowd. The cast mingles with you beforehand over cocktails and pick the participants. All this in less than an hour. To see our friends Billy Flagg and Rancho’s Mario on stage making total idiots of themselves as the beer guzzling redneck truck driver’s backup singers was just too much. Not to mention our Elevator Jim as Leonardo DiCaprio parading on the Titanic with a suspiciously tall masculine Kate Winslet who was just as impressive.
Seeing the YMCA boys perform their tush shaking number was the limit. Stephen you should join the cast.
As an extra bonus, some of the cast members were awfully pleasing to the eye. Billy Flagg couldn’t keep drooling over the aspiring nymphomaniac actress while the girls were going gaga over the very shaggalicious nerdy waiter turned singer turned hunky policeman. (The handcuffs sure added extra spice for additional fantasy material).
Out of delight I looked up BigTime Murder Productions on their Website and found out they also provide Hillbilly weddings, that would be a hoot, imagine! (Too bad I’ve been there already too many times).
Thank you guys for an incredible evening, we all certainly would like to see you back again.
