As theatre musical fans, it would be nearly impossible not to geek out over news of musicals coming their way to Manila. And with the upcoming local production of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical brought to us by Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group, it's even nearly impossible to contain our screams and tears of enthusiasm.
Running from June 14 to July 7 at the Meralco Theater, Pasig City, the Tony Award-winning musical based on the life of the legendary singer-songwriter Carole King has tapped the country's most acclaimed theatre stars including Kayla Rivera and Nick Varricchio who will play Carole and husband Gerry Goffin respectively.
The cast of the musical production is also made up of theatre veterans Jamie Wilson as Don Kirshner and Carla Guevara-Laforteza as Genie Klein. The rest of the characters will be filled in by Mikkie Bradshaw-Volante (Cynthia Weil), George Schulze (Barry Mann), Maronne Cruz (Betty), and Nelsito Gomez (Neil Sedaka). Tim Pavino, Arman Ferrer, Markus Mann, and Jep Go will play The Drifters; Gab Pangilinan, Teetin Villanueva and Jill Peña as The Shirelles; and Rhenwyn Gabalonzo as one of the Righteous Brothers.
Moreover, the show features Carole-penned classics like "You’ve Got a Friend," "One Fine Day," "So Far Away," "Take Good Care of My Baby," "Up on the Roof," "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling," and more.
