With lyrics by Ryan Cunningham and music by Joshua Salzman, ILYB is a delightful story about four individuals--two couples who find love in people and places they least expect.
The young cast includes Harold Cruz, Caisa Borromeo, Kyla Rivera, Gabs Santos, Anna Santamaria and Onyl Torres.
REP veteran Robbie Guevara directs the musical, while Francis Matheu choreographs. With them are Mio Infante for set design, Martin Esteva for lights, Onyl Torres as vocal coach and Jojo Malferrari as both musical director and repetiteur.
ILYB is a show about taking chances, breaking stereotypes, falling head over heels in love, and peeling away the facade and fairy-tale illusions that distract us from seeing what--or who--is really in front of us. As a song in the musical goes, “It’s easy to say, ‘I love you, anyway.’ But I don’t. I love you because.”
ILYB will be showing on all weekends from February 13 to March 8, with Friday and Saturday shows at 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 3:30 p.m. For ticket inquiries and reservations, call Ticketworld 8919999 or the REP office 8870710. Visit www.repertory.ph or www.ticketworld.com.ph
