StarStruck 3 alumnus Vivo Ouano will act on stage for the first time via the sexy-comedy play Solo Para Adultos.
In the play, Vivo will bring life to Alfred, a masseur who wants to be a popular actor.
Alfred becomes the lover of popular actor JV (John Raspado) who promised him stardom.
Just recently, Vivo made headlines when he revealed that there were managers who tried to offer him stardom in exchange for having intimate relationships.
This is also the reason why Vivo has no manager until today.
His past encounter with a manager was also one of the reasons why he decided to accept the role.
He said, "Oo, parang ganun, kaya nga ganun, nangyari in real life. Kaya sabi ko, maganda din ito.
"Noong una kasi, binabasa ko, sh*t, malaswa. Parang gusto ko na magback out.
"Lalo na yung mga salita, ang daming salita na hindi ko na sinasabi, e!
"Pero noong natapos ko yung story, maganda siya. Malaswa talaga yung salita pero siyempre, kung iintindihin mo naman yung story, tatapusin mo, okay naman."
HESITATIONS ABOUT ROLE. Vivo had to think twice about accepting the role because he is already a married man with two kids.
He admitted, "Yung una, medyo siyempre, parang bilang pamilyado na ako tapos dalawa na yung anak ko, nagdalawang isip ako noong una.
"Pero kasi, play naman siya, e, at saka sa panahon ngayon, normal na lang siya, e. Normal yung pagpapasexy."
How did his wife react upon hearing about his role?
"Sa una, talagang ayaw niya, ine-explain ko paunti-unti, di ko binibigla na sabihin ko, kasi ganito, kasi malaswa talaga, inuunti-unti ko siya.
"Hanggang naintindihan na niya na trabaho lang, walang personalan."
In Solo Para Adultos, Vivo is expected to do sensual scenes with Mr. Gay World 2017 winner John Raspado and former Wowowee dancer Aprilyn "Congratulations" Gustillo.

According to the 27-year-old actor, the cast members of the play are undergoing sensuality workshops along with their rehearsals.
Since there are sensual scenes, Vivo will also bare skin and go topless.
To prepare for these scenes, the Wildflower actor spent most of his time at the gym.
He admitted that he still feels awkward when he takes off his shirt for the play.
The former Kapuso actor said with a smile, "Once pa lang ako nakapag topless sa TV, tagal na nun, bata pa ako, kasama ko si Dennis Trillo.
"Ngayon naiilang pa rin ako. Di pa rin siyempre sanay dahil hindi naman ako sanay na naghuhubad sa public.
"Siguro sa bahay lang, selfie-selfie lang pero sa public hindi ako sanay.
"Siguro eventually ma-o-overcome ko rin yung hiya ko sa ganon."
Solo Para Adultos, a three-act sexy-comedy play produced by Red Lantern Productions, will have a one-night staging on October 20 at the Music Museum in Greenhills, San Juan.
The play promises to be a "social commentary about what’s happening about the Philippine entertainment setting."
