Singer-actress Bituin Escalante’s special solo concert will be streamed as part of CCP’s online initiative to provide audiences with cultural content online during the current lockdown period. The concert features songs personally selected by Escalante herself from her extensive repertoire of songs from Broadway, West End, original Filipino musicals, and movies.
Escalante has enjoyed a successful career in music, beginning in pop from the 2000 Metropop Song Festival with her interpretation of the song “Paano Na” written by Arnold Reyes, and then gaining popularity for her iconic interpretation of “Kung Ako Na Lang Sana” at the 2002 Himig Handog Music Love Song Festival. She has gone on to perform extensively in musical theater.
Escalante’s theater credits include Joseph the Dreamer, Waitress, Himala: Isang Musikal, Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Seussical, Alice in Wonderland, Death and The Maiden, ThreePennyOpera, Once on this Island, RENT, Dreamgirls, and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Everything in Bituin is the third and final show in the series Triple Threats: Leading Men and Women of Philippine Musical Theater. It took place on October 9, 2014 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater.) The shows feature performers considered “triple threat” – those excellent at acting, singing, and dancing. The two previous shows featured Sheila Francisco and Michael Williams.
Everything in Bituin will be streaming on CCP’s YouTube channel as part of the CCP Online line-up starting on May 9 at 3pm and will only be available for one week.
CCP Online is bringing HD and archival recordings in theater, dance, visual arts, film, literary, and workshop events from CCP’s Cultural Content Digital Archives to audiences online.
