The Phantom of the Opera World Tour Extends Manila Run
Catch its opening on February 20!
(SPOT.ph) We know how excited you were when you found out that The Phantom of the Opera would be showing in Manila again, with tickets already available through Ticketword. Opening at The Theatre at Solaire on February 20, the award-winning musical was originally slated to run until March 17 only, but due to overwhelming public demand, the producers will be extending its Manila run for two weeks so you can still catch it until March 31!
According to Concertus Manila, rehearsals for the play are in full swing as the cast and crew flew into the Philippines earlier this month to begin setting up in Manila. Threater star Jonathan Roxmouth will play the title role of The Phantom alongside Meghan Picerno, who will be playing Christine.
The Phantom of the Opera, which opened in London's West End in 1986, is based on the French novel by Gaston Leroux. The musical features music by Andrew Lloyd Weber, lyrics by Charles Hart, and script by Lloyd Weber co-written with Richard Stilgoe. The 1988 Broadway production bagged a number of Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor, Best Performance by a Featured Actress, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design, and Best Lighting Design.
The musical first had its Manila run in 2012 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
