‘Gugmang Giatay’ is back

THE runaway theatrical hit “Gugmang Giatay the Musical” is back and will be holding limited shows in Cebu and Manila this month.

The original Bisrock jukebox musical, “Gugmang Giatay” will have a one-night-only staging at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Teatro Casino of Casino Filipino of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.

Later this month, Manila will get its chance to enjoy the popular Bisaya production. A staging will be held Nov. 26, 4 p.m., during BGC Passionfest, and again from Nov. 28 to 30.

Written by award-winning songwriter Jude Gitamondoc and internet sensation Rowell “Medyo Maldito” Ucat, “Gugmang Giatay” is a romantic comedy with a good dose of “maoy” moments, “hugot” lines and acerbic Bisaya humor.

The musical features landmark Bisaya hit songs, both contemporary and classic, written by such iconic talents as Max Surban, Cattski Espina, Insoy Niñal, Jude Gitamondoc, Medyo Maldito and Junior Kilat, among others. (PR)
