Rep's 'musical-comedy thriller' No Way to Treat a Lady opens March 1

Repertory Philippines' second offering for the year 2013 is “No Way To Treat A Lady”, a musical comedy thriller with book, music and lyrics by award-winning author/composer Douglas J. Cohen. Direction is by Audie Gemora.

The musical is based on the 1964 novel of the same name by William Goldman which was made into a motion picture in 1968.

The cast of five (portraying 17 characters!) includes Audie Gemora as Christopher ‘Kit’ Gill; Joel Trinidad as Morris Brummel; Carla Guevara-Laforteza as Sarah Stone; Sheila Francisco as Flora Brummel; Pinky Marquez as Alexandra Gill; and Jamie Wilson as Christopher Gill (stand-in).

Set in summer 1970’s New York City, “No Way to Treat a Lady” tells the story of Christopher Gill, an unsuccessful actor-turned-serial killer, a maniac with mommy issues who is on a rampage, and the NYPD detective on his trail, Morris Brummell. Woven into the main story of cop vs. killer are two subplots--what made Kit a killer and Moe's relationship with his mother and his new girlfriend.

The musical received a Fred Ebb Award for Musical Theatre Songwriting, a Richard Rodgers grant, and a nomination for Best Revival by the New York Outer Critics Circle.

The show runs March 1-24 at Onstage, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City.

Co-presented by the City of Makati, the artistic team of “No Way To Treat a Lady” is composed of Baby Barredo (artistic director); Audie Gemora (director); Liesl Batucan (assistant director); Dingdong Fiel (musical director); Mio Infante (set designer); Raven Ong (costume designer) and John Batalla (lighting designer).

“No Way To Treat a Lady” is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd. Inc.
