Are you ready to fallin' love? : They're Playing Our Song

      "And now I'm fallin', fallin' fast again,
               Why do I always take a fall, when I fall in love?" - Fallin' 
Are you ready to fall in love this February? 9 Works Theatrical brings you "They're Playing Our Song" a musical romantic comedy starring Nikki Gil and Lorenz Martinez

   "Well-known composer Vernon Gersch (Lorenz Martinez) meets aspiring offbeat female lyricist, Sonia Walsk (Nikki Gil) . It’s the token story of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, girl falls head over heels for boy – only, the kookiness of Sonya interspersed with the wisecracks of Vernon leads to one hilarious scene after the other."

  What an awesome story right? It is based on the real-life relationship of the show’s Broadway creators, the late, great Tony Award-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch (“A Chorus Line”) and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Carole Bayer Sager (“Michael Jackson,” “Celine Dion”), THEY’RE PLAYING OUR SONG takes a peek into the trials that both Sonia and Vernon undergo before finding true love.

   I was invited to their presscon last Jan. 15 at The Conservatory , The Peninsula Manila. It has been a pleasure to cover this event because it is one great theater play to watch out for! From the great award winners, to now, being performed by one of the greatest theater production and casts! Not to mention our love for music, which I inherited from my mother.  

   For theater fanatics out there, you sure have known that Tony Award-Winner Ms. Lea Salonga once played Sonia Walsk before in one version of it and now it will be played by Ms. Nikki Gil!  Nikki said “I love Lea and anything that has to do with her. She really brought the role of Sonya to life in the previous staging. I’ll just have to bring something different to the table… my own version.”

      Just to think how nervous she is but hey! Nikki has played several roles before, like for Legally Blonde and Sweet Charity. She really is into it and performs very well. At the presscon she sang Fallin' as a teaser! Here she's partnered with Lorenz Martinez, one of the top theater actors in the country. He's a tenor and currently appearing in Resorts World Manila’s “The King and I” as Lun Tha, he has also appeared in shows like Forbidden Broadway, 9 Works Theatrical’s The Wedding Singer, Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Asian Tour), and the Netherlands production of “Miss Saigon” as the Engineer, among others. No doubt this two will give a very great show on stage!

Moreover, the director, Mr. Robbie Guevara wanted to maintain the 70's setting of the play! Oh how we love vintage and retro!

   During the Q&A, the casts were asked about their most romantic moment. Wanna guess what's Nikki's most romantic moment with Billy? She shared, "I was in a rush for a show and Billy offered to blow- dry my hair!" She said she even got a picture of it! Haha XD But the most unforgettable answer for me was from Ms. Anna Santamaria, one of the casts and the wife of the Executive Producer Mr. Santi Santamaria. " I really didn't want a huge wedding, " Ms. Anna told the press, " but he insisted that "since you didn't had a big debut, I'm gonna give you a very big, fairytale wedding" ". And we were like: "Awww…". Aren't they the sweetest company owners? As you can see they both manage their company because Ms. Anna loves to act and Mr. Santi loves theater plays! This play truly had the heart and the passion. :)

I really enjoyed this romance-filled presscon of "They're Playing Our Song". Thank you Sir Santi for inviting me! And to 9WT and The Peninsula Manila for a warm welcome. :)
