MUD: THE STORY OF KUALA LUMPUR, The Musical, traces the story of the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur's early beginnings as a small agricultural village of the 1850s, to an industrial tin mining town of the 1880s, and to becoming the administrative capital of the Federated Malay States in 1896. It's told through the lives of three friends who find that by facing their challenges living in this growing town, they find themselves too. MUD infuses traditional theatre form with modern theatrical technology. This 1-hour musical is a visual feast that will not only excite all visitors to Malaysia, it also commemorate the bricks that built this city we call our home. MUD is housed within the 112-year-old Panggung Bandaraya, or City Theatre, built at the confluence of Klang River and Gombak River. This building rose among the KL's early architecture. A Moorish façade wraps this building, which has been classified as a heritage building under the Antiquities Act. MUD: THE STORY OF KUALA LUMPUR is presented by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), a project by Visit KL, and produced by Tiara Jacquelina, award-winning producer of Puteri Gunung Ledang and P.Ramlee The Musical under Enfiniti Vision Media.

It is such a pity that this show has been discontinued. While it was live, it was a great show and truly resembled the beginnings of Kuala Lumpur.

An interesting musical about the history of Kuala Lumpur which the audiences can take part in during the run of the musical. As the history of Kuala Lumpur is executed well in the musical, there is no difficulty in understanding the history of Kuala Lumpur.
