As an actor, Aliw Awardee Joel Trinidad has appeared in shows like Love/Sick, The Horse And His Boy; The Bluebird Of Happiness, The Producers, Defending the Caveman, Spelling Bee, and Avenue Q, among many others. He’s directed numerous shows, too, like Into The Woods, Much Ado About Nothing, Forbidden Broadway, and his own musicals Breakups & Breakdowns (music by Rony Fortich), Fairy Tale Rescue, and Close Engkantos of the Christmas Kind (music by Onyl Torres and Regie Tan). He is currently producing and directing a show, finishing two novels, and creating four new musicals, because he is mildly insane.

As a performer, Nicky Triviño has appeared in Love/Sick (Upstart), Sandosenang Sapatos (Tanghalang Pilipino), Into The Woods (Upstart), Cinderella (Resorts World Manila), The Wizard of Oz (Repertory Philippines), among many other shows. She has also directed, co-directed, or assistant-directed such projects as the aforementioned Love/Sick, Gruesome Playground Injuries (Upstart), and The Cab Ride (Astrosininglaya), along with several workshops, showcases, and special events. Her next major project is co-directing the Philippine premiere of Monty Python’s Spamalot (Upstart), opening on July 28, 2017. Nicky is currently developing, with composer Rony Fortich, an original musical about Pre-Hispanic Philippines.

(The song “Audition Blues” is from the upcoming musical “The Glitter Trap,” by Joel Trinidad and John Meer Vera-Perez)
