Hello, dear Jellicle readers and listeners!

As promised in FB, I am very much pleased to bring to you our latest Jellicle Podcast on the re-run of Resorts World Manila’s BITUING WALANG NINGNING THE MUSICAL.

In this podcast, we feature the four lead cast of the show.

Jellicle Podcast: Bituing Walang Ningning the MusicalStart of with Mr. Ronnie Liang. Ronnie who will play Gary Diaz (orignally portrayed in the film by Mr. Joel Torre) was a Starstruck Avenger from GMA. Mr. Mark Bautista will take on his role again as Nico Escobar (originally portrayed by Mr. Christopher de Leon). Mark, who I have seen in Atlantis’ THE FULL MONTY has taken various stage roles and has developed so wonderfully as a singer and as a stage performer. Playing Dorina Pineda (of course, originally portrayed by Ms. Sharon Cuneta) is Ms. Monica Cuenco – from Cebu.

Jellicle Podcast: Bituing Walang Ningning the MusicalWorthy to mention is the new addition to the lead cast. Alternating the hat of the iconic Lavinia Arguelles (played so memorably by Ms. Cherrie Gil) with Ms. Chris Villongco, is Ms. Antoinette Taus!

Accompanying the brilliant leads is a powerhouse ensemble which consists of veteran actors Jon Santos, Jay Roa, John Nite, Michael Stuart Williams, and the first lady of Philippine musical theater Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo. Also, Mr. Epi Quizon joins this re-run as he alternates with Jon Santos as Auntie.

BITUING WALANG NINGNING THE MUSICAL brings to life a story that has transcended Philippine entertainment. Originally told over a serialized comic strip by fictionist Nerissa Cabral, the story was made into a blockbuster movie in 1985 and was then re-made into a hit television series back in 2006.
