Fresh from the success of his A Night At The Theater concert in December with scenes inspired by Resorts World Manila’s Ang Huling El Bimbo (AHEB)—The Musical, Pinoy rock icon Ely Buendia gears up for a repeat performance at the Newport Performing Arts Theater on Feb. 20.
Due to insistent public demand, the legendary frontman of one of the most influential Pinoy bands of all time is once again set to display his thespian side and integrate the exciting elements that make up both theater musicals and rock concerts.
As the first performance allowed audiences to witness a unique integration of both disciplines, not to mention a side of Buendia not previously seen by his fans, this time promises to be another Pinoy musical experience for the books.
Apart from the cast that include Gian Magdangal, Chino Veguillas, Jon Santos, Carla Guevara-Laforteza, Reb Atadero, Victor Robinson, Lance Reblando, Tanya Manalang, Sheila Francisco plus members of the ensemble: Stephen Vinas, Raymund Concepcion, Jasper Jimenez, Kiara Dario, Jim Ferrer, Red Nuestro, and some of the members from the creative team behind the breakthrough 2019 musical, Buendia will also be joined by his band Nitoy Adriano, Audry Dionisio, Pat Sarabia, Carissa Ramos, and Joseph Cabanero plus the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra.
Notable production contributions include Myke Salomon’s musical arrangement, writing by AHEB playwright Dingdong Novenario, and the direction of theater veteran Jamie Wilson.
“This was a leap into the unknown,” said Buendia of the original show, and as a new decade begins, the legendary singer, songwriter, and artist is once again all set to present his vast creative arsenal to music fans of all ages in his one-night concert.
Tickets to A Night At The Theater: The Repeat are now available at the RWM Box Office at the ground floor of Newport Mall and all TicketWorld outlets. For more upcoming shows and events at RWM, visit www.rwmanila.com or download the RWM Mobile App.
