Once upon a time, there were three ladies from the Book Club who wanted to try out something new
So they decided to read the book “50 Shades of Grey”
It all started with a girl named Anastasia Steele who works in a hardware store (which you probably know, if you’ve read the book)
One of the actresses who play her is our very own sweet-faced Karel Marquez. (Trivia: Bangs Garcia got her role in “Ang Panday” because she chose this musical.)
Going back, this very entertaining musical which offers a wide genre of songs is about how the three women interpret what happens between Anna and Mr. Grey
One of those ladies is Bituin Escalante. (TRIVIA: She is not only a strong belter, she comes from a generation of theater artists. Her mom Gigi Escalante and her sister Kalila Aguilos are both veterans of the stage)
Another Filipino thespian who’s part of it is Lorenz Martinez (TRIVIA: For those who don’t usually watch stageplays, you might recognize him from the GMA 7 weekend show “Vampire Ang Daddy Ko”. He was also Cris Villonco’s empathetic suitor with a cleft palate in “Hari ng Tondo”). He’s the dude on the left.
And of course, there’s Julz Savard, who looks like Miley Cyrus in her solo production poster. (TRIVIA: This sexy vixen was part of “Ninja Party”, a 2015 film by Jim Libiran about highschool sex cliques)
