Repertory Philippines has added evening shows of “Little Women” on Sundays during its run from Nov. 20 to Dec. 12, 2010. The Sunday 8 p.m. shows will be on Nov. 21 and 28 and Dec. 5 and 12, 2010.
“We received requests to add more shows as more and more families wish to catch this Broadway musical,” says “Little Women” director and Rep associate artistic director Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo.
Also, “Many Filipinos do not usually have the chance to listen to a full orchestra,” says Lauchengco-Yulo. “With ‘Little Women,’ they’ll get to experience it as well as enjoy seeing the adventures and misadventures of the March sisters.”
Gerard Salonga will conduct the Filharmonika orchestra.
“Little Women,” with music by Jason Howard, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein and book by Allan Knee, is based on the novel by American author Louisa May Alcott, about the heartwarming story of the March family--how they overcome challenges and preserve the love and unity of their family.
The cast includes Caissa Borromeo as Jo, Cara Barredo as Beth, Kelly Lati as Amy and Lora Nicolas as Meg, with Jaime Barcelon as Laurie as Pinky Marquez as the girl's mother Marmee.
“Little Women” runs Nov. 20-Dec. 12, 2010 with 8 p.m. shows on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and 3:30 p.m. shows on Saturdays and Sundays, at Onstage Theater, 2/F Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center, Makati City.
