Lea Salonga has completed her stint on the Tony Award-winning revival of Once On This Island. The Filipino star made her final bow on the June 24 performance of the Broadway production which recently bagged the Tony for Best Musical Revival.

Lea portrayed the goddess of love Erzulie in the updated version of Once On This Island which began previews in November 2017 before officially opening last December 3. She was voted Best Featured Actress in a Musical at the BroadwayWorld's Theater Fans' Choice Awards earlier this month.

MYX caught up with Lea at the stage door right after her final performance to find out what's next for the Broadway legend. She's going home to the Philippines before returning to the U.S. to star as Grace Farrell in Annie which will be staged at the Hollywood Bowl from July 27 to 29.

But what is Lea Salonga's most immediate concern after her latest Broadway triumph? "I'm going to drink tonight!" Drink up, mamsh! You deserve it! Check out our MYXclusive interview below:
