Joining her is veteran theatre actor, Lorenz Martinez, who once again lends his inherent gift of quick comic timing and tenor singing voice. Model, host and rock band vocalist Julz Savard goes back to her roots in musical theatre as she reprises her role as well. George Schulze will proudly be reprising his role as the charming and slick Jose.
The original Filipino cast is complimented by another rousing set of performers with triple threat Jasmine Fitzgerald joining the cast. Shiela Valderrama Martinez is set to add 50 Shades the musical to her long list of productions which rangers from Rak of Aegis to Into the Woods. Sarah Facuri who has appeared in Tatlong Linggong Pag-ibig, American Idiot and other well-lauded productions is also now part of the cast. Recording artist, theatre actress and pole dancer Sheng Belmonte also adds to this fiery mix of thespians.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a full production without the titillating and talented group of actors. Chesko Rodriguez, a pro in productions like Full House Theater’s Annie, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella; Kids Act Philippines Inc.’s The Wizard of Oz; Hansel & Gretel; The Little Mermaid, among others, sheds his Prince Charming vibe for a racier character in the re-run. Ryan Christopher Sy, takes a break from his international career, to be part of the ensemble. His unquestionable talent shines more with a body worthy to be part of Cosmo’s top 10 Hunks and Century Tuna’s Superbods. Matthias Rhoads, another new addition to the cast, may not have as extensive experience as his co-actors but he does make up for it in raw talent and good looks. Having been discovered in 2016 during the Philippine Independence Day Parade, he has then started pursuing his acting career.
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.
50 SHADES! The Musical Parody will rock your world—and it’s even more fun in a group! Take your friends, take your co-workers and, as Time Out Los Angeles says, “TAKE YOUR INNER GODDESS TO THIS SMASH HIT!”
