MANILA, Philippines - Here’s good news for theater fans: Spotlight Artists Centre announces that Katy The Musical will be restaged from July 25 to Aug. 4 at the Meralco Theater.

Based on the inspiring story of legendary jazz chanteuse, Katy dela Cruz, the critically-acclaimed revival production of Ryan Cayabyab and Jose Javier Reyes’ landmark musical had its limited run at the CCP Little Theater.

Directed by Nestor Torre, Katy featured a powerhouse cast which included Tirso Cruz III, Dulce, Epy Quizon, Tricia Amper-Jimenez, Lou Veloso, Gian Magdangal and  Aicelle Santos.

“It has been barely two weeks since that last curtain call for Katy The Musical, and yet the deafening applause still keeps ringing in my ears,” reminisces lead star Isay Alvarez-Seña.

What’s even more heartening was seeing people from different generations and persuasions, bound by their shared passion for the stage.

Isay adds, “As for myself, I’m proud to share that one of the unexpected highlights during our staging of Katy was when Celeste Legaspi and Mitch Valdes (who produced and starred in the musical’s very first run in 1988 at the now-defunct Rizal Theater) went backstage to congratulate the cast and gave their permission for us to do another run.”

In line with its thrust of promoting the theater arts, Spotlight Artists Centre, headed by Robert Seña and Isay, announced that they will hold summer workshops for musical theater and tap dance. Interested show buyers may also avail of premium discounts for special booking packages with guaranteed return on investment.
