Leading Lady The Musical, the next big thing in Philippine Theater.

I always wondered why there are some people who admire villains. They would say they can relate to these scoundrels. Relate to their evil aspirations? Are people naturally evil? They would even say, "Ang guwapo guwapo ni Loki!". Really? That dreadful face that does nothing but harm? 
Maybe "Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady The Musical" can explain. Created from Carlo Vergara's one-act play, with music and lyrics by Vince de Jesus, Leading Lady the Musical is the first release by Dalanghita Productions. This could be the next big thing in theatre as the skill was evident by the direction of Chris Martinez. We follow the story of two sisters, Mely and Viva. Mely, ordinary yet diligent, (Bituin Escalante and Frenchie Dy, alternating) is hired as a maid by a group of English-speaking Pinoy superheroes called Fuerza Filipinas. One of her bosses, the telepathic Leading Man (Markky Stroem and Hans Escktein, alternating) falls for her. And yes, they fall in love wit…
