“Tale of the Prince’s Revenge”, (Chinese Hamlet) a theatrical play whose cast also included a group of TVB artistes consisting of Steven Ma, Sonija Kwok, Michael Tse, Dexter Young & Lo Chun Shun, debuted the night before (Nov. 22nd). TVB bigwigs, Ms. Virginia Lok and Ms. Chen (曾勵珍) attended the play to cheer on the cast and show support. Connie Chan Bo Chu was also there to support her son (Dexter). Other good friends who attended included Joyce Koi and Emily Kwan (關寶慧). Despite Ma Zai’s earlier appeal to friends to substitute the customary congratulatory flowers with fruit baskets, he still received plenty of flowers that night.
After the show, Zhen Jie and Ms. Lok went backstage together to congratulate the cast. Zhen Jie demonstrated to Sonija, a first timer in theatre performance, on how to gesticulate more naturally and subtly. Sonija was so nervous she was not even aware that she had stepped on Susan Tse’s robe during performance
Also making their theatre debut, Steven and Michael overcame their nervousness to successfully complete their performances without a hitch. They were very into their characters. Steven was very elegant and graceful in his period costume. His intense histrionics scenes elicited loud applause from the audience. Michael’s performance was also very well acted.
