MANILA, Philippines — The cast of Bubble Gang, led by Michael V, stars in the live musical play Parokya Nato’: A Laugh Story on Feb. 15, 8 p.m. at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Lahug, Cebu City.

It’s a project of GMA Regional TV in cooperation with GMA Entertainment Group and GMA Pinoy TV, through the Kapuso Concerts. The production is under stage director Rem Zamora with musical director and playwright Vince de Jesus, music arranger Myke Salomon and choreographer Dan Cabrera.

During a press conference, Michael V shared, “This time around, it’s a full-blown musical, as in real musical experience featuring the hits of Parokya Ni Edgar, including the not-so-popular ones because they are needed in the story.”

As the show’s creative director, Michael V credits Bubble Gang’s success to team effort and its loyal viewers. He said, “(We) never forget the audience because we get our inspiration from them. You have to be in touch with society and always remember the society that makes the show. And also, the success of what we do does not rely on one person alone, it’s a group effort. Fortunately for Bubble Gang and in my case, it’s not just (because of) the cast but the creative team as well.”

Asked to describe the relationship among the cast members, Michael V said, “We support and treat each other like family. If you treat one another as family, the work will turn out good.” 

Parokya Nato’: A Laugh Story is the story of a simple guy named Buloy (Michael V), a die-hard fan who has built his dreams around an actress, Birdie Aguila (Kim Domingo) and the countless adventures he has to go through to fulfill his life-long dream to be her leading man on- and off screen.

The concert also features Chariz Solomon, Valeen Montenegro, Paolo Contis, Mikael Daez, Antonio Aquitania, Jackie Rice, Denise Barbacena, Lovely Abella, Sef Cadayona, Archie Alemania, Mikoy Morales, Analyn Barro, James Macasero, Roadfill Obeso, Myka Flores, Diego Llorico and Betong Sumaya.
