Ali Baba becomes actor

Foremost comedian, Ali Baba, is billed to take part in a new stage play, “Loud Whispers,” which will be staged on Sunday, May 1, to commemorate the workers’ Day.
The play, an adaptation of the similar named book, written by Joseph Edgar, unconventional investment banker and theatre enthusiast will be staged at the MUSON Centre, Lagos.
Ali Baba and a 20-man cast, featuring other talented thespians including Patrick Diabuah, Paul Alomona, Tony Okuyeme, Tony Offiong and Joy Ogbekene, will be performing a series of monologues through a mixture of dance and song. Particularly, Ali Baba in a genre crossing role, will be addressing current issues, throwing jabs at political and social actors and passing commentaries while entertaining and holding the audience spellbound.
Speaking at a press conference, the organizers of the play and Managing Director, Katunga Media, Betty Abang said, “ Edgar’s book has elicited so much laughter and attention through its acerbic but comical banter on very topical issues. “
The play, according to her, takes a light hearted look at otherwise critical issues in Nigeria with a bid to relieve tension and build positive discourse on their resolution. The event, which coincides with Workers’ Day, aims to give workers an enjoyable entertainment alternative.
