This will feature actor James Bradwell, James Cooney, and Vanessa White with Jef Flores and Regina de Vera as covers. Running from March 1-17, the production explores extramarital affair issues of three complex individuals and how clandestine meetings turn into confrontations.
From June 7- 30, REP goes off- Broadway with I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. Perfect for fans of modern musicals and sitcoms, the revue is rife with with a whirlwind cast of characters, ranging from big city singles and awkward wallflowers to suburban settlers and sassy seniors — all played by a cast of four! Directed by Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, this production ensures a seamless blend of hearty humor and music.
For its last two offerings, REP celebrates its love for storytelling. Repertory Theatre for Young Audiences (RTYA) showcases Filipino folklore in the all-new musical Jepoy and the Magic Circle, an adaptation of The Magic Circle, a children’s short story by literature legend Gilda Cordero Fernando. The story centers on the adventures of Jepoy, his dog Galis, ad they enter the whimsical world of balete and meet kapres, aswangs and tiyanaks. Brought to life by RTYA Director Joy Virata, it has EJ Yatco as musical director.
To cap the year, REP has Going Home to Christmas featuring the music of Mr. Christmas himself, Jose Mari Chan. Leo Rialp directs with Jeremy Domingo as his assistant. Chan’s music and lyrics lend themselves to the story of OFW’s returning from abroad during the holidays.
All the shows will be held at the Carlos P. Romulo Theatre in RCBC Plaza.
