In celebration of their 22nd anniversary, BUBBLE GANG, the longest-running gag show on Philippine television, went on an all-out theatrical production with Bubble Gang Parokya Bente Dos: A Laugh Story Musical!
The stage musical which was shown live two days ago at GMA Network’s Studio 7 to select audiences features music inspired by the songs of the band “Parokya Ni Edgar” specially arranged to fit its hilarious but heart warming story.
Parokya Bente Dos: A Laugh Story tells about the unusual love story of Buloy (played by Michael V) and Birdie (played by Kim Domingo). I dare not say more, so as not to giveaway the surprises. But what I can tell you is that this is their most daring and most extravagant anniversary production ever.
In this special production, all the Bubble Gang cast transformed themselves magnificently into theater musical actors. All the songs (around 10) were performed live, raw and uncut by the actors themselves. The set, props, sound and lighting – it;s like you’re watching an actual stage musical – and it is what it is!
It’s like “Rak of Aegis” or “Katy: The Musical” – This production would actually pass for a serious stage release and I am predicting that it will!
Credits for this project goes to musical arranger Myke Salomon, director Rem Zamora and playwright Vince De Jesus.
