The producers behind the hugely successful Manila seasons of “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Wicked” have lined up four new productions this year, making 2015 their busiest year yet and a bumper year for theatergoers.
These shows will follow the hit West End musical “Singin’ in the Rain,” which opens in Manila on Aug. 20.
“La Soirée” is an Olivier award-winning cabaret show that features a decadent cocktail of astonishing acrobats, mind-bending feats and thrilling musical numbers.
It runs Sept. 23-27 at The Theatre at Solaire.
“Louis Pearl: The Amazing Bubble Man” will enchant adults and children alike with a 75-minute showcase of his unique blend of skill and humor, featuring helium bubbles, rocket bubbles, volcano bubbles, tornado bubbles, foggy laser bubbles, even spaceship-in-universe bubbles.
It runs Sept. 23-27 at RCBC Theater.
“Beyond the Barricade” is a glittering concert of musical showstoppers by past principal performers of “Les Misérables.” Their repertoire includes hit songs from “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Jersey Boys,” “Evita,” “Wicked,” “Miss Saigon,” “West Side Story,” “Mamma Mia” and many others, climaxing with a spectacular finale from, of course, “Les Mis.”
It runs on Oct. 7 at The Theatre at Solaire.
“Cookin’ Nanta” is a world-famous nonverbal performance that guarantees plenty of laughs in the kitchen. It has been seen by 8.1 million people, the largest audience in Korean history.
