Here Lies Love-A Disco Musical
I like to share with you a very interesting post about the Asian-American Musical, Here Lies Love in New York City. The musical is based on the life of Imelda Marcos. Fourteen out of the seventeen cast members are Filipino-American actors and actresses. The new musical is taking New York by storm. The Asian American casts are singing and dancing to the electric music of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim.
It tells the story of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos and her rise to political stature. It is directed by Alex Timbers. The show has already won an accolade of awards including the Outer Critics Circle for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical. APA actor Jose Llana plays Ferdinand Marcos. He describes the musical as "Fun, Fabulous and Filipino!"
