What happens when a gay hairdresser swallows a rock in just one gulp? Become a superheroine, of course! This is the premise of the graphic novel Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, which in turn inspired the stage play of the same name.
Tanghalang Pilipino closes its 22nd Theater Season with the restaging of the phenomenal hit, Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, Ze Muzikal. This production features the original cast members as well as talented newcomers and a bigger chorus.
Eula Valdes reprises her role as the stunning red-haired warrior Zsa Zsa. Alternating in the role of Didi, her flamboyant assistant, are Joey Paras and Nar Cabico. Zsa Zsa's alter ego, the "parloric" Ada, will be played alternately by Tuxqs Rutaquio and Vince de Jesus. Playing the role of Dodong, the man with the "packed noodles," are Arnold Reyes, Lauren Novero and newcomer Red Anderson. Kalila Aguilos alternates with newcomer Meliza Reyes-Uy as Queen Femina, Zsa Zsa's nemesis. The man-hating Amazonistas will be played by Mayen Estañero, Wilma Doesnt, Skyzx Labastilla, Via Antonio, Ring Antonio and Irene Delarmente.
To accommodate a bigger cast, Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, Ze Muzikal will be staged this time at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater) for a limitied run of two weekends in February.
