Anastasia Steele is back!
Karel Marquez will be up to her old tricks again – as she is set to reprise her role Anastasia Steele in the upcoming rerun of 50 Shades! The Musical Parody.
With a successful run early this year, 50 Shades! The Musical Parody will bring its sexy back in Manila this December. Steam up your holiday season and catch its limited run from December 15-17, 2016 at the Music Museum – with only 4 shows on sale now.
Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world with million copies sold worldwide and a blockbuster movie. A sexy, hilarious romp, 50 SHADES! The Musical Parody is a laugh out loud night of fun that audiences won’t want to miss! The show has audiences rolling on the floor, dancing in the aisles and begging for more. Like the book series, 50 SHADES! The Musical Parody is surely not for those under the age of 18, but does not cross boundaries that would make general audiences squirm.
Al Samuels, the director and one of the writers of the parody, had so much fun working with Karel and has only good words to say about her performance as Ana.
“It was a joy to work with Karel earlier in the year for the role of Ana. Karel bought a real honesty, vulnerability and yet a deep strength to her portrayal of Ana. She already brought so many talents to the show, and it was wonderful to watch her grow even more as an actress through the process. She also brought a hilarious sense of comedic timing that delighted audiences for the whole run. I am so excited to see her reprise her performance.”
Karel shared her excitement with her fans on her Instagram (@iamkarelmarquez) account: “Here goes one crazy sexy holiday! See you at the theater!”
Having done the musical earlier this year, Karel says she always want to improve on her self in terms of skills or talent, adding that she hopes she gets to enhance what she has shown as Anastasia, making it more fun and exciting this time.
Aside from being a host, singer, actress, food stylist and entrepreneur, Karel is also a dedicated and hands-on mother to 2 beautiful kids.
So what keeps her busy these days? Preparation for her big day! She will be marrying her fiancé, businessman (and her very own Mr. Grey) Sean Farinas. Their wedding pre-nup video is currently going viral, not just because of its uniqueness (a spoken poetry in Filipino language) but the love and sincerity that transcends to the people who have watched it.
