GLOBE Telecom will open its world-class Iconic Store at the Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater in Bonifacio Global City on June 24.
Opening the store’s entertainment facility will be the Philippine version of Green Day’s American Idiot with front row acts from rock icons such as Basti Artadi of Wolfgang, Miggy Chavez of Chicosci, former Rivermaya vocalists Jason Fernandez and Norby David, and veteran thespian Nel Gomez.
The musical is about a journey of three young men as they face the harsh realities of the world around them—a symbolic post-9/11 America—where they must face the challenges of love, teen pregnancy, war, drugs and loss. The musical is inspired by the incredibly biting and riveting music of Green Day.
“Green Day’s American Idiot is the perfect entertainment act to launch the Globe Iconic Store. With the world-class entertainment venue we can offer with its unique location, American Idiot’s dynamic story can fully utilize the facility and deliver an immersive theatrical experience like no other. More importantly, we are doing this to drive awareness among the youth and bring a valuable lesson of what today’s generation should avoid—drugs, peer pressure, teen pregnancy, among others,” said Globe’s Joe Caliro.
Completing the cast are: Yanah Laurel (Spring Awakening, Rizal X), Alex Godinez (Grease, High School Musical), Miss Saigon alumna Ela Lisondra (also a performer in Disney Paris and Hong Kong), Kai Atienza (GMA 7 artist), Ariel Reonal (seasoned thespian, Hong Kong Disney and Miss Saigon alumnus), Gian Gloria (Euro Pop Berliner Perle finalist, Marco Polo), Mako Alonso (La Cage aux Folles, Rivalry), Sarah Facuri (Grease, No Filter), Chesko Rodriguez (La Cage aux Folles, performer in Universal Studios Singapore), Shalee Vicencio (Disney’s Camp Rock, Alice in Wonderland), Mark Tayag (Rent, The Wedding Singer, Grease) and Kendrick Ibasco (Pinocchio, Rivalry).
