Katy! The Musical : Proudly Supported by Globe Telecom

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The revival of iconic Filipino production Katy! The Musical at the Meralco Theatre from July 19 to August 4 receives strong backing from Globe Telecom, a testament to the company’s thrust of developing and promoting local talents.

“Globe is an active supporter of projects that harness Filipino talents. We are hoping that by lending our resources to an original Filipino musical, we could be instrumental in further encouraging our artists to perfect their craft as well as promote local productions not only among discerning theater aficionados but to the general public as well,” said Yoly C. Crisanto, Head of Globe Corporate Communications.

Just recently, Globe partnered with the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) on the staging of the highly-successful and long-running production of Batang Rizal, an educational, interactive comedy-musicale theater play which went on a tour around the country to give a fresh look on the life and works of the country’s national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. It featured an all original music composed and arranged by Maestro Vincent de Jesus, with the direction of Dudz Terana and written by Christine Bellen.

This time, Katy! The Musical which was originally staged in the 80’s , chronicles the inspiring story of legendary jazz chanteuse Katy dela Cruz, who rose from the ranks to become one of the most illustrious, internationally-acclaimed and highest paid performers of her time.

From the 1930s onwards, throughout a prolific career that stretched out to more than six decades, the iconic stage livewire endeared herself to both foreign and local audiences with her mesmerizing stage presence, classic style and elegance, as well as her playful wit and irreverence.

The musical, which seeks to perpetuate the legacy of the Filipino jazz icon, is comprised of a powerhouse cast led by Isay Alvarez in the title role, Tirso Cruz III, Dulce, Epy Quizon, Lou Veloso, Gian Magdangal, the AMP Band, and Aicelle Santos who will play the young Katy.
