Real-life romance on the stage of La Cage Aux Folles when actor Erwin Shah Ismail proposed to dancer/actress Ms Tiffany Tallon, at 10.30pm tonight (4 May 2017) during the last curtain call!
The proposal which had taken weeks to plan finally came to fruition as the perfect opportunity arose when both actors were cast in the same production. Their respective families were present in the audience.
Erwin was the first male Singaporean to graduate with an honours degree in Acting from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2011. Since then, he has performed on the local and international stage, including Malaysia, the Philippines, Peru and the United Kingdom.
In 2016, the popular 31-year-old actor was part of the Dark Room x8 cast that won Best Ensemble at the Life! Theatre Awards, and was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2013 and 2015. LTA (NS) Erwin is also a TV actor and has starred in dramas on local channel Suria and the AXN TV network.
He plays Fazaluddin in La Cage Aux Folles.
Tiffany, who plays one of the Cagelles in La Cage Aux Folles, is also the dance captain of the production. A dancer/actor/singer from Australia, she has performed in many countries, including in a Mandarin musical in Singapore, If There’re Seasons – which was where love blossomed between her and Erwin.
The A List SG wishes the lovely couple, a lifetime of happiness and wedded bliss!
