Audie Gemora is hailed as the country’s King of Philippine Musical Theater because of the number of roles he has breathed life into in his decades in the business. Aside from being an excellent theater performer, he is one of the most respected icons of the musical theater, founding companies like Trumpets and STAGES, and being one of the stalwarts of Repertory Philippines. He also starred and directed shows for PETA and Tanghalang Pilipino.
This July 5 at the CCP Little Theater, Audie topbills I Was Here, which traces Audie’s music roots in an unforgettable concert experience. Audie will be joined by theater luminary Sheila Francisco and stage’s youngest leading man Sam Concepcion. Local music industry’s biggest recording star will also join Audie and will be his special surprise guest.
I Was Here is part of CCP’s Triple Threats which showcases the Leading Men and Women of Philippine Musical Theater’s uncanny ability to sing, dance and act. Nonie Buencamino kicked-off the series last June 13, while Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo will close it on August 15.
The show’s musical director is Rony Fortich, who, according to Audie did an amazing job on the songs included in the repertoire. Rony is also the MD of Audie’s broadway album Playlist.
“The concert will be a night of good, laid-back music,” says Audie. “It is very intimate, and very relaxed. I’m super excited to do the show for everyone.”
