Tiann Nerng Chong

Tiann Nerng Chong

        25 year old Kuala Lumpur native Tiann Nerng Chong grew up on a steady diet of Disney animated musicals and classic movie musicals such as The Sound of Music and My Fair Lady. His first introduction to ‘proper’ musical theatre was a rendition of Seasons of Love from American Idol - and a journey down the rabbit hole of theatre (through the internet) began. Since then, he has tried to enjoy as many local / regional theatre offerings as possible, while keeping up with the Western theatre world through sites such as Broadwayworld. Interests include reading (esp. fantasy, LGBT themed novels and fanfiction), banging away on the piano, singing (mostly off key), cast recordings, video games and writing. Guilty pleasures: melodramatic sung through mega-musicals (i.e. Lloyd Webber; Boublil and Schöenberg), fluff pieces (i.e. Legally Blonde) and heavy-handed morality dramas (i.e. An Inspector’s Call). Shows utter disdain for blackface / yellowface, stuntcasting of ill-fitted performers, and to paraphrase Goldie Hawn from Death Becomes Her, “bad acting”.
