Beauty and the Beast (The Musical)

I bumped into an old friend Aiza Marquez the other day on my way home from a VTR in Makati and she hasn't change a bit... She's still as pretty as and as funny as always.

It's been a while since we last saw each other and it was fun because we had the chance to talk for a while and hangout. We got to talk about the Musical Beauty and the Beast and she told me her friends KC Concepcion and Karel Marquez are playing the lead role. I promised I'll watch the show... hopefully with my friends Uma, Rose and the rest of the gang before it's last run on July 17.

Anyway here's an article about the show.

For its 2005 offering, Atlantis Productions has secured the exclusive rights to stage in the Philippines the smash hit Broadway family musical, Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.

One of the most anticipated musicals of the year, Atlantis Productions' staging of Disney's Beauty and the Beast has found two leading ladies to play the title role.

KC Concepcion will return to Manila from her studies in Paris to sing the lead role of Belle, the intelligent and opinionated Beauty who learns to love a young Prince trapped in the body or a Beast. KC has always loved Disney animated films, Beauty and the Beast being one of her favorites along with Alice in Wonderland. Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST marks her return to the musical stage after nearly a four year absence.

Alternating with KC Concepcion is MYX VJ, Karel Marquez, who will be marking her professional stage debut. Karel fell in love with the Animated Disney Classic as a little girl and is thrilled to be able to play the role now.

Already a legend as the sixth longest-running show in Broadway history (and the second longest running show currently still playing on Broadway), "Beauty and the Beast" was nominated for nine 1994 Tony Awards including Best Musical. This spectacular musical has been wowing audiences worldwide, with record-breaking runs in New York, London, Los Angeles, Toronto, Sydney, Tokyo, Madrid, Sao Paulo and Kyoto. It opens in Manila on June 16th for a limited Engagement at the Meralco Theatre.

Directing Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is critically acclaimed director Bobby Garcia. Joining him on the stellar creative team are Choreographer Andy Alviz, Costume Designer Mio Infante, Lighting Designer Jay Aranda, Sound Designer Bobbit Jacinto, Assistant Director Chari Arespacochaga and Visual Illusionist Eric Mana.
