MiG Ayesa and Joanna Ampil excited to star in first international staging of Bridges of Madison County

The first international staging of the Tony Award-winning musical Bridges of Madison Country will be held in the Philippines from November 20-December 6, 2015. It is topbilled by Fil-Australian rock star MiG Ayesa and Joanna Ampil of Miss Saigon fame.



Kabado sina MiG Ayesa at Joanna Ampil sa kauna-unahang international staging ng musical na Bridges of Madison County dito sa Pilipinas.

Pero nangako naman sila na pinaghahandaan nilang mabuti ang nakatakdang pagbubukas nito ngayong buwan.

Unang nagkaroon ng theater adaptation ang popular na libro ni Robert James Waller noong February 2014 sa Gerald Schoenfeld Theater sa Broadway.

Ang Bridges of Madison County ay tatalakay sa buhay nina Francesca Johnson, isang simpleng maybahay na nakatira sa Iowa, at Robert Kincaid, isang traveling photographer.

Aksidente ang pagkakakilala ng dalawa ngunit nauwi sa ibang pagtitinginan ang kanilang apat na araw na pagkakaibigan.

Naisalin na rin ito sa pelikula, na may parehong pamagat, noong 1995 na pinagbibidahan nina Clint Eastwood at Meryl Streep.

Kuwento ng Fil-Australian rock star na si MiG, ??This is the second production of this show??first international??but now, they are now rehearsing the U.S. tour, which actually opens, after we opens.

"So, this actually the second time the show is being staged in the world.??

Kuwento naman ni Joanna, ??The show was offered to me way back in January to be staged in March but Jason Robert Brown [Tony Award-winning composer] is still fixing the score so its been postponed to November.??

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at ilan pang media sina MiG at Joanna sa presscon ng Bridges of Madison County, The Musical tanghali ng Martes, November 3, sa Oakwood Premier, Ortigas, Mandaluyong City.




A BIT OF PRESSURE?
Mahirap bang gawin ang naturang musical dahil ??romantically sexy?? ang libro nito?

Sagot ng West End star, ??The score is fantastic. The score is beautiful so it??s a winner.??

Dugtong ni MiG (na nakilala sa reality show na Rock Star: INXS), ??What amazing about this show is the way it's told.

"It??s told through the music of Jason Robert Brown, and his score won Tony Award for the best score last year.

??So, it??s fantastic way to tell this epic tale of love and loss.??

Dagdag ni Joanna, ??Aren??t we lucky, we got to be the storytellers???

Napi-pressure ba sila sa maaring magiging outcome ng musical?

Tugon ni Joanna, ??I don??t know. I mean, we are team like with Bobby [Garcia, director], and then MiG, and myself, the ensemble, we are just creating something special.

??I mean, of course, we know that??s it??s been staged before, and there??s that bit of pressure, but we can only give our own interpretations to the characters that we??ve been portraying.??

Ang Bridges of Madison County, The Musical ay mapapanood simula November 20 hanggang December 6 sa Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati.
