Cebu’s theatrical hit Bisrock jukebox musical, GUGMANG GIATAY will be holding shows in Manila on November 26, November 28 and November 30, 2017.
Written by award-winning songwriter Jude Gitamondoc and Internet sensation Rowell “Medyo Maldito” Ucat, GUGMANG GIATAY is your (a) typical romantic comedy, with a good dose of “maoy” moments, hugot lines, and caustic Bisaya humor.
The musical features breakthrough Bisaya hit songs, both contemporary and classic, written by such iconic talents as Max Surban, Cattski Espina, Insoy Niñal, Jude Gitamondoc, Medyo Maldito, and Junior Kilat, among others.
The Manila staging of GUGMANG GIATAY will feature award-winning actor Bong Cabrera in the role of Ben. Cabrera is known for his role in the 2011 film Sa Ilalim ng Tulay, for which he won the award for Best Actor in the Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival. He also won Best Supporting Actor for the 2013 film The Guerilla is a Poet in the CineFilipino Film Festival.
The other cast members are as follows: Von Saw, Lourdes May Maglinte, Shiella Pestaño-Gemperoa, Shane Reseroni, Joer Gallur, Paola Pia San Diego, Jeyve Daño, Jan Echevarria, Davelyn Cuenco, Heidi Pogoy, Alem Garcia, Malaya Macaraeg, Kristian Ray Malintad, Dion Cecilio, Lauire Tul-id and Dustin Tagalog.
Sarah Mae Enclona-Henderson is the producer of GUGMANG GIATAY. Frankly funny and entertaining, GUGMANG GIATAY also aims to uplift local pop culture to the musical stage. The musical, in its entirety, is a tribute to anything and everything Bisaya.
The show will run on Sunday, November 26, 4 p.m., during BGC Passionfest, and again from Tuesday, November 28 until Thursday, November 30, 8 p.m. All Manila performances will be at the Globe Auditorium of the Maybank Performing Arts Theater, BGC Arts Center, Taguig.
