Rico Blanco’s music will conquer theater before the year ends.
ABS-CBN News reported this was confirmed to them by 9 Works’ Theatrical artistic director Robbie Guevara, who is writing the book of the musical.
Recall that the company teased about it in 2019.
“Prepping up for next year! Isang panibagong musikal!” they wrote along with a picture of Rico in a contemplative mood.
Later, on the social media account of the theater company, they posted an audition call for their “second original Filipino musical and upcoming Broadway musical.”
“Curious to know what we have in store? Here’s a clue — our 2020 season will rock YOUR UNIVERSE, ALL AT ONCE!” part of the text read.
“Your Universe” is the title of a Rico song that was a track from his eponymous solo album released 12 years ago after he left rock band Rivermaya.
