Cebuanos are in for a treat as Bubble Gang, GMA Network’s longest-running and multi-awarded gag show, takes its brand of humor to the Queen City of the South.
We are definitely looking forward to bring to Cebu one of Bubble Gang’s successful shows because as we all know, they are the Filipinos’ favorite comedy program because of their unique, amusing and extraordinary parodies, sketches and gags
In a restaging its 22nd anniversary presentation, which was considered a hit, Bubble Gang is set to stun the regional crowd with its live musical play entitled “Parokya Nato’: A Laugh Story” this 15 February at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, Lahug, Cebu City.
“During our 22nd anniversary, we were looking for something we hadn’t done yet,” Michael V related, describing their dream of creating a musical like Hollywood and Rak of Aegis.
“Problem was looking for what songs and band to feature.”
Because of an “uncanny connection” with the sense of humor of Michael V and the band’s Chito Miranda, Parokya ni Edgar was chosen.
“It was as if the songs were made for the musical,” the musical’s director Rem Zamora described.
“Now it’s a full-blown musical,” he added, “combining theater discipline (no cuts, onstage) with the Bubble Gang psyche.”
This musical concert is a project of GMA Regional TV, in synergy with GMA Entertainment Group and GMA Pinoy TV, through the Kapuso Concerts.
“We are definitely looking forward to bring to Cebu one of Bubble Gang’s successful shows because as we all know, they are the Filipinos’ favorite comedy program because of their unique, amusing and extraordinary parodies, sketches and gags. We can’t wait for them to see what our Kapuso artists have in store for them,” said GMA RTV vice president (VP) and head Oliver Amoroso.
Meanwhile, GMA VP for Business Development Department II Janine Piad-Nacar added, “This concert is GMA’s gift to all the Cebuanos who supported Bubble Gang through the years.
They loved our 22nd anniversary special and it became a hit in the province. That’s why we, in GMA, especially Michael V., are thrilled to perform for them.”
“Bubble Gang 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 had to go through in order to fulfil his life-long dream to be her leading man on and off screen.
