Filipina Tony awardee Lea Salonga wears Rajo Laurel in the ongoing Tony’s Awards in New York.
Laurel designed a modern-day tuxedo in gun metal grey.
It is encrusted with metal beads and strategically placed glitter.
Theater audience last night at the 50th anniversary gala show of Repertory Philippines missed the presence of Salonga. It turned out she flew to LA.
Salonga’s stellar career began when at eight years old, she was the star of the musical “Annie” staged by the then struggling Repertory Philippines under the tutelage of founder and director Zeneida Amador. TSS
