2. Lea Salonga herself has given this assurance in her blog, but let me repost her words verbatim for those of you who are anxious about buying Cinderella tickets and have been asking me which dates to book "kasi baka 'yung alternate niya at hindi si Lea ang makuha namin:"
"For those of you who wrote asking about my Cinderella schedule: I'll be doing each and every performance, barring illness, injury or vacation (I'm entitled to 2 weeks off somewhere in the run... waaaaaaaay after the Manila leg is over and done with). If you see that my understudy is performing, it means that I am not in any way physically able to do that particular show."
There. Crystal-clear promise, right? Now you know what to do.
Lea's understudy, by the way--not alternate--is Sheila Valderrama, a Rep-trained actress who was part of the original batch of Filipino musical-theater artists that went to Hong Kong Disneyland. IF she does get to play Cinderella, even for one performance, I'd make sure to catch her, too. Wouldn't you love to see another homegrown talent get her moment in the spotlight?
