ROBBIE GUEVARA DIRECTS RENT, CAST ANNOUNCED

Robbie Guevara directs RENT, the East Village-set 1990’s musical that will run this coming February 2010 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.

Santi Santamaria, 9 Works Theatrical’s Executive Producer in a statement said, “Rent is set in New York City’s gritty East Village, and this revolutionary rock musical is an imaginative retelling of the classic Puccini opera, La Boheme. This unforgettable and timeless story of a group of starving artists, who, despite poverty and illness, learn to fall in love and find their voices, brings a universal message of hope for everyone. We’re thrilled to bring this important piece of Broadway musical theatre to the local Filipino community.”

Gian Magdangal leads the cast as Roger Davis,  a songwriter who is HIV positive, with Fred Lo as Mark Cohen, an independent filmmaker and Roger’s roommate and Nicole Asensio as Mimi Márquez, an exotic dancer with HIV.
