Starring Mimi Lo (羅敏莊) and Alice Lau (劉雅麗), the original Hong Kong theater musical DOGs debuted its first show at the Jockey Club Auditorium, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s classical theater on February 14. Based on a true story, DOGs takes place in modern-day Bangkok, and chronicles the adventures of Wanna, the pet dog of Thailand’s prime minister. She meets seven other dogs – all with backgrounds much different from her own – and ends up in an experimental workshop for animals.

Portraying dogs, Alice revealed that the cast is involved in many dangerous stunts in the musical. She disclosed, “Mimi injured her tailbone once.” Mimi quickly clarified, “There’s a lot of climbing over objects in this musical. I should be doing that twenty years ago, not now. I’m too old now!”

Many of Mimi and Alice’s celebrity friends attended the premiere show yesterday to support the cast, including Mimi’s husband Power Chan (陳國邦),  Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Maggie Cheung Ho Yee (張可頤), and Elena Kong (江美儀). On why the Beauty Knows No Pain <女人最痛> costars decided to go out on a date with others on Valentine’s Day instead of with their significant others, Maggie, who is single, said, “I’m here to support Mimi and Alice. I also stole [Elena] from her boyfriend so she can be my date for the night.”

Asked if her boyfriend was unhappy with the arrangements, Elena said, “My boyfriend’s actually not in Hong Kong right now.” She added, “I’ve broken up with him for today.”

Maggie, who has recently been sharing many photos of her hiking trips on Weibo, revealed that many of her hiking partners were younger colleagues. Asked if she was looking into starting a relationship with one of them, Elena butted in, “Younger men? That’s the trend now!” Maggie added, “I’m actually not really into good-looking men. As for having a younger partner, I can see myself with one as long as our souls are close and compatible,” she added with a laugh. She then jokingly admitted that she has a pursuer and that they are in a “developing” relationship.

After the premiere February 14 showing, DOGs will continue its run throughout the next week with six more performances. Its last showing will be on February 23.

          Yup, that’s him. Jackie is still filming TV series, but mostly in the Mainland…if I remember correctly, his series with good friend Jessica Hsuan just aired a few months ago.

          Jackie also has a bunch of businesses on the side…in addition to the diving thing, he and his wife (former actress Mak Jing Ting) also have a beauty products business. They’re also very big on environmentalism and do alot of promoting for their friends’ vegetarian restaurants.

          It appears that there were only some of them, not all. The media is probably just messing (probably also because Elena Kong took an unabashed dig at Maggie Cheung). I mean, Joyce Tang wasn’t there either.

          But beyond this photo, the amount of support this is getting is quite amazing :O

          Not sure why the reporter even mentioned BKNP because this event has nothing to do with that series. Elena and Maggie are good friends in real life (they always joke about how much they love each other on weibo..haha..) and they’re both good friends with Mimi. Rain Lau, Sheren Tang, Jackie Lui and his wife Jing Ting, etc are all good friends with Mimi and Power and with each other, so they all happened to attend the same showing together.

          A bunch of other artists attended as well to show their support, except on different days.

          I’m actually very glad to hear all the support this stageplay is getting, as it’s for a very good cause and hopefully helps people treat their pets better.
