Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady: The Musical

Last 2012, I came up with the idea of a simple story involving a maid of a superhero team. It was supposed to be a one-act play, but I didn't know what I could do with the idea to make it a 45-minute acting piece. "Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady" (How I Became Leading Lady) eventually got penned in early 2013, and was accepted in the 9th Virgin Labfest.

Not sure about the story's future, I had a comics adaptation made. The 72-pager was released in late-2013. The play was later chosen to be restaged in 2014, something I'm extremely grateful for. But I thought that was it.

But, no. Fast forward to 2015, the one-act play will open as a full-length musical this May.


Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady: The Musical is being produced by Dalanghita Productions, and will run from May 7 to June 7 this year. It will take place at the PETA Theater Center in Quezon City.

Music and lyrics are by Vincent deJesus, Production Design by Tuxqs Rutaquio, Choreography by Nancy Crowe. Direction by Chris Martinez, who also directed the original one-act play.

Here are the fine actors that comprise the cast.

Tickets are now available at the Ticketworld website.

I don't think I'll be able to attend all shows, since I'm currently getting the Zaturnnah sequel finished. But I'm sure I'll be there during most weekends. The comic book adaptation of the one-act play will be for sale at the lobby.
