Mula sa Buwan is an original Filipino musical based on Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac and Soc Rodrigo’s Filipino translation. Now set in 1940’s Manila, the musical features wide-eyed dreamers, fools, and misfits where harana, kundiman, together with passion and genuine friendships abound. Through wit, stories, and music, they dream and fight for their place in an ever-changing city. However, when war strikes, love, ideals, and truth are all tested–the young now forced to suddenly “grow up”.
The musical moves to a time after the war, to a field of rubble, of forgotten memories, of heroes lost in a country struggling to survive. At the center of it all is the unrequited and heartbreaking love story between the poet Cyrano, his beloved Roxane, and the kind-hearted Christian.
Created by Pat Valera and William Elvin Manzano in 2010, Mula sa Buwan has had succeeding runs at the Henry Lee Irwin Theater last December 2016 and February 2017, and at the Hyundai Hall, Areté in Ateneo de Manila University last November to December 2018.
Joining Valera (book and adaptation, direction, and original lyrics) and Manzano (original lyrics and original music) in the creative team are Myke Salomon (musical direction), Ohm David (set design), Meliton Roxas (lighting design), JM Cabling (choreography), Bonsai Cielo (costume design), Steven Tansiongco (video projection design), and Mikko Angeles (assistant direction).
