Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo will Lead Powerhouse Cast of Godspell


MusicArtes stages its first Broadway rock opera – GODSPELL – from June 17-19 and 24-26 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of RCBC Plaza, Makati.

This new staging is directed by Dr. Anton Juan and features a powerhouse cast led by Ms. Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo. Jef Flores plays the role of Jesus while OJ Mariano plays the role of Judas. Others in the cast are Shiela Valderrama-Martinez, Caisa Borromeo, Poppert Bernadas, Topper Fabregas, Red Concepcion, Stephen Viñas, Abi Sulit, Maronne Cruz, Rhenz Gabalonzo, and Gab Pangilinan.

GODSPELL was the first major musical theater offering from 3-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden) and it took the world by storm.


Boasting a score with popular and chart-topping songs (Day by Day, Light Of The World, All Good Gifts, Prepare Ye The Way); a book by a visionary playwright John-Michael Tebelak; and a feature film, GODSPELL is a sensation that continues to touch audiences with its timeless theme revolving around the parables of Jesus Christ and His message of world peace and love.

Musical direction is by Ejay Yatco, production design is by Otto Hernandez, and lighting design is by John Batalla. GODSPELL is produced by MusicArtes by special arrangement with Samuel French Limited and with the assistance from Fullness of Christ International Ministries and Land Registration Systems.
