RAK: 4th run and it's still fresh

Rak of Aegis makes its fourth run starting tomorrow, June 17 at the PETA Theater Center and it gives new additions to the 11-time awardee at the recently concluded Philstage Gawad Buhay Awards.
Director Maribel Legarda keeps experimenting on the show that really doesn't disappoint viewers show after show. In fact, each show is never the same as the previous one that also keeps the audience coming back and getting surprised with the cast's ad libs. I love how each one of them can inject humor but still catch the essence of the musical.

The family of Rak grows bigger and bigger with new cast. And PETA is proud to announce the inclusion of OPM icon Renz Verano as Kiel in the cast. A newcomer in the theater industry, hope that he'll give you more electrifying rendition of Aegis songs. He replaces Robert Sena and alternates with theater actor Lorenz Martinez and OJ Mariano. Adding more powerhouse cast, The Company's Sweet Plantado makes her role as Mary Jane replacing Isay Alvarez-Sena and alternates with Kalila Aguilos. New Tolits will be played by Benj Manalo, and the ensemble is joined by thespians Teetin Villanueva, Via Antonio, Raflesia Bravo and Roi Calilong.

They're also featuring Sayang Na Sayang, another high-pitched song from Aegis and I am really curious on how they are going to insert it in the repertoire. I'm guessing that it will be on Kiel and Mary Jane's exchange. If you're not familiar with the song, here it is in videoke version:
Para Kay Aileen is also featured in the musical. Is this intentionally made for the musical? Cool.

Rak of Aegis plays tonight until August 16 from Tuesdays to Fridays (8PM) and Saturdays and Sundays (3PM and 8PM). Totalling 62 shows for this run only, adding to the 100+ shows from the previous run, only at the PETA Theater Center in Quezon City.
