About the Show

What happens when songs from beloved musicals meet personal stories full of humour and heart?

It is a celebration of both his life and of Malaysia through his favourite songs and stories that sold out in Kuala Lumpur last year.

Featuring anecdotes of his colourful life: from his childhood in Kerala, carefree student days in Cambridge, to being a lawyer in Kuala Lumpur, an actor in Los Angeles and beyond.

Chacko Vadaketh: Songs & Stories takes audiences on a fun, cheeky, yet thoughtful journey of a shared history, of family and friends, and of nationhood.
