A Rocky Horror Moment

The Rocky Horror Show in Singapore meeting Lee Kuan Yewa funny happy thing happened on the way to Dorothy’s” (fabulously famous local bar, formerly Backstage) one night, at the Esplanade Theatre car park entrance:

I literally bumped into Lee Kuan Yew (he was the founding father of Singapore and after decades, was still the Prime Minister) who was walking to his car — we had a very brief and polite conversation, during which he asked what I was doing in Singapore, I explained “The Rocky Horror Show” (now in his late ‘80s, he clearly did not know anything about it, despite his administration banning it for decades under their morality laws) — I went on, much to the nervous chagrin of his 2 security people, to invite him to be a guest narrator… he said ‘sounds interesting‘, I politely gave him my business card, then continued onto my watering hole, he continued on back into his world — never heard from him again.
