MANILA, Philippines - Award-winning and internationally-acclaimed theater actress and singer Carla Guevara-Laforteza (photo) stars as The Lady Of The Lake in the much-awaited Philippine run of the Broadway smash hit Monty Python’s Spamalot, Aug. 4, 5, 6 and 12 at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, in RCBC Plaza, Makati.

Monty Python’s Spamalot’s is a recipient of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album and the highly-coveted Tony Award for Best Musical, and its Philippine run is a production of Upstart Productions under the direction of Joel Trinidad and Nicky Trivino. The laugh-a-minute musicale spectacle is based on the hilarious film Monty Python And The Holy Grail and it tells a crazy version of the classic story of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail.

“I am so thrilled to be back in theater,” says Carla who was part of the amazing ensemble cast of Gary Valenciano’s Gary V Presents concert series franchise, which recently had a sold-out season finale run at The Theatre at Solaire.

“Spamalot is the kind of production that I love — it’s out-of-this-world, super fun and absolutely funny. I am also very excited because all my costumes are created by Francis Libiran and the wigs I’ll be using are specially designed for me by Lynelle Hair Fashion.”

In-between theatrical productions, Carla is busy with numerous TV and film appearances in her home network ABS-CBN as she is part of Star Magic’s roster of artists.

(Monty Python’s Spamalot also stars Rachel Alejandro and Lorenz Martinez. For tickets, call TicketWorld [891-9999] or Upstart [0917-8116156]).
