Ang Pagkanta ni Maximo Oliveros: Maxie the Musicale
Because Maxie’s spectacular story deserves sensational production numbers!
(SPOT.ph) The pageant scene from the critically acclaimed Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros is still fresh in our minds despite the fact that it has been nearly eight years since he blossomed in film. It’s the kind of moment that belongs on stage, and now, it won’t be limited to our imagination. Bit by Bit Company, PETA Theater Center, and the Cultural Center of the Philippines have collaborated to bring even more pizzazz to the fabulous coming-of-age story with Maxie the Musicale: Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros.
Much of Michiko Yamamoto’s screenplay is retained. The story still revolves around Maxie, a gay (embodying the two readings of the word: happy and homosexual) teen who faces a dilemma when his innocent crush on a cop clashes with his loyalty to his family. This humble but strong tale now benefits from music by William Elvin Manzano, JJ Pimpinio, and Janine Santos with lyrics by Nicolas B. Pichay, under the direction of Dexter M. Santos.
The eponymous character will be played by Jayvhot Galang, supported by Roeder Camañag, Nazer Salcedo (the two actors will alternate as Pac Oliveros), Jojo Rigeurra (Victor Perez), Al Gatmaitan, OJ Mariano (alternating as Boy Oliveros), and Jay Gonzaga (Bog Oliveros).
Maxie the Musicale will run from November 8 to December 8, 2013 with shows on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at the PETA Theater Center.
Tickets are available at all TicketWorld (891-9999) and SM Tickets (470-2222) outlets. For more information, call 0917-842-7346 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow Maxie on Twitter and like them on Facebook.
