World Theater Day: Broadway Plays Coming To The Philippines This 2024

Who knew that Filipinos would be so interested in learning about the American institution? Well, that’s what happens when you combine creative storytelling with well-written songs in one musical play! Hamilton: The Musical came to the Philippines last year and each day was sold-out. The Filipinos loved Lin-Manuel Miranda’s creation and it became a hit. Which is why in 2024, the theater scene in the Philippines bloomed beyond anyone expected. So, let’s check the different musical plays that you can watch live this year!

Miss Saigon

Perhaps one of the most known musical plays in the Philippines solely because Lea Salonga spearheaded the leading role in one of the first runs of the play. Earlier this year, an audition was held to search for the perfect Miss Saigon cast members, especially for the role of Kim. After the auditions were completed, rehearsals began and now the show is up and running.

Pretty sure you’ve already heard of the song with the lyrics, “Five-hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes…”, right? That song is from the hit rock musical RENT which was written by Jonathan Larson. It is a story about a group of artists who are striving to survive in Lower Manhattan’s East Village. In addition, it can also be looked at as Jonathan Larson’s autobiography because he placed some parts of the content based on his life experiences being an artist himself.

In the Philippines, 9 Works Theatrical is the one who’s bringing the musical to life on the Philippine’s stage.

Little Shop of Horrors

This is for those who are into horror and comedy combined into one! The Little Shop of Horrors follows the story of a shop clerk who finds out that his boss keeps a carnivorous plant which actually is a wealth-bringer. But, since it’s carnivorous in nature, the plant requires sustenance of human blood. So, if you’re into that kind of stuff, then you better prepare as the Broadway spectacle has arrived in the Philippines.

And since Broadway is coming to the Philippines, we Filipinos are also going outside of our country to bring the Filipino pride abroad with our very own Siddhartha: The Musical. The play will be staged in Africa this year.

There’s also Pinoy plays that are going to be staged here for us to watch, including One More Chance: The Musical, and Pingkian: Isang Musikal.
