Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, Bituin Escalante, and Frenchy Dy headline Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady
Dalanghita Productions and PETA are turning Carlo Vergara’s play into a musical.
(SPOT.ph) Admittedly, it was hard to get songs from Zsazsa Zaturnnah Ze Muzikal out of our heads. On especially gay days, it’s fun to sing "Babae na ako! Didi, tingnan mo! Babae na ako!" while getting ready to head out. The PETA x Carlo Vergara pairing, as an limited extension of the Tanghalang Pilipino production, was a winning one. If love is truly sweeter the second time around, we have high hopes for the musical adaptation of Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady.
The play is set to hit the stage on May 7 and behind it is a glam dream team who made Zsazsa zpectacular. Chris Martinez is directing a cast headed by Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, Bituin Escalante, and Frenchy Dy. The trio will be singing the musical compositions of Vincent de Jesus.
Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady still involves superheroes, except this time, we’re seeing the world from the perspective of their maid, Mely and her sister Viva. The two are engaged in a bitter rivalry and, of course, romance is thrown in there, too. Fantasy and harsh reality collide as a war between heroes and villain rages on, with ordinary people trying to find their place under the sun on the side.
Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady is set to open on May 7 and will run until June 7 at the PETA Theater Center, presented by Dalanghita Production. For ticket inquiries, call TicketWorld at 891-9999.
