‘Dirty Old Musical’ opens once more to the public starting February 22 at the Music Museum.
From its September 2016 premiere up to its January 2017 rerun, Dirty Old Musical casts a bright ray of hope for the long-dormant local theater industry, which normally takes the backseat to big-budgeted and long-running foreign productions.
If good things do come in threes, then D.O.M.'s forthcoming third run should be a sign of enduring critical success and commercial longevity, and eventually pave the way for the emergence of even fresher material when it opens once more to the public starting February 22 at the Music Museum.
Sharing the spotlight this time are world-class stage performers headed by Robert Seña, Bo Cerrudo, Nonie Buencamino, Carlo Orosa and Jett Pangan, with a powerhouse supporting ensemble comprised of Kitkat, Tricia Amper-Jimenez, Ima Castro, Neo Rivera, Katherine Tiuseco, Anthony Castillo, Matel Patayon and Carlon Matobato.
D.O.M. revolves around an all-male '80s group which disbanded due to personal issues. After several decades, the long-lost comrades consider the prospect of a musical reunion as their last-ditch effort to raise funds for an ailing member. But do they still have the magic and charisma from their long-forgotten youth?
The musical soundtrack promises to be a pleasant romp down memory lane as these are familiar, iconic OPM hits from the '70s-'80s, including “Kastilyong Buhangin,” Mag-Exercise Tayo Tuwing Umaga,” “Nais Ko,” “Kay Ganda ng Ating Musika,” “Babae,” “Legs,” “Ang Himig Natin,” “Sana,” “Pag Tumatagal Lalong Tumitibay,” “Pasumpa-sumpa Ka Pa,” “Kung Liligaya Ka,” “Ayoko na Sa'yo,” “Farewell,” “Nosi Balasi” and “Mr. Kenkoy.”
