‘Chuva Choo Choo: The Mr. Kupido Musicale,’ featuring the hits of Vehnee Saturno, opens Sept. 25
Stages Production Specialist Inc. is unveiling a brand-new original Filipino musical, built around the songs of Vehnee Saturno, to open the Power Mac Center Spotlight, a new 300-seater black box theater in Circuit Makati.
“Chuva Choo Choo: The Mr. Kupido Musicale,” opening Sept. 25 and directed by seven-time Palanca winner George de Jesus III, tells the story of two sisters, Dina and Darla, played by Joanna Ampil and Morissette Amon, who go from amateur singing contestants to national stars.
It will feature the most popular compositions of the multi-awarded Saturno, such as “Be My Lady” (Martin Nievera), “Sana Kahit Minsan” and “Simple Lang” (Ariel Rivera), “Isang Lahi” (Regine Velasquez), “Mr. Kupido” (Rachel Alejandro), “Bakit Pa?” (Jessa Zaragoza) and “Wala Na Bang Pag-ibig” and “Dahil Tanging Ikaw” (Jaya).
The Power Mac Center Spotlight, the newest theater venue in the metro, is a multi-purpose venue with flexible seating setup and lights and sound system designed to showcase diverse Filipino talents and numerous entertainment options.
The venue was borne out of a partnership between Power Mac Center and Ayala Land, anchored on a vision to create a premier entertainment district in Circuit Makati, which is a 22-hectare property that will offer new office spaces, upscale residences, a lifestyle hotel, outdoor sports facilities, interactive retail facilities and various entertainment options.
“There’s no better way to usher in the promise of the development than with a creative endeavor featuring some of the biggest powerhouses in the entertainment industry,” said Mel Ignacio, Ayala Land Strategic Landbank Management Group AVP.
