Gugmang Giatay the Musical

ABOUT

"Dah, tua ra. Gugma pa more!"

A small, close-knit neighborhood is #shookt when Inday, a down-to-earth girl, lets slip that all is not well in her relationship with Undo, her long-time musician boyfriend. A surprising sequence of events ensue as gossip, pretense, and confessions lead them and their closest friends and associates to address the situation in their own well-meaning but often misguided ways, leading to even more complications. The disparate group proves that while love is indeed accursed, it can lead to surprisingly desirable ends, if one lets it.

Gugmang Giatay is an Offbeats Production written by renowned songwriter Jude Gitamondoc and social media celebrity Rowell Ucat a.k.a. Medyo Maldito. The musical features iconic songs from Missing Filemon, Rommel Tuico, The Ambassadors, Vispop and many more.

Makapamalikas ka sa kasakit, kalingaw, kapait, ug kalami ning sugilanon sa gugmang gauros-uros sa pagka-Bisdak.

Para sa mga bitter, in love, gaselos, ug gibiyaan. In short, para sa tanan!

Reviews for Gugmang Giatay

This production from Cebu was a joyous blast of authentic musicality and sassy fun. The repertoire of classic and contemporary Visayan melodies and the exuberant but disciplined performances of the cast, added up to a rockin’ show of unexpected sweetness and charm. Read full review.

The standouts were leads Lourdes May Maglinte and Von Saw as the young lovers, and the wonderfully comic elderly store owner played by Shiella Pestaño Gemperoa. But the whole cast sang superbly and were a terrific ensemble. Read full review.

Arturo Hidalgo Inquirer Lifestyle

Ultimately, the gem of this play are the solos. Those solos show each characters’ vulnerability to love and even conveyed sincerity to the pain. You just want give them warm hugs and say “okay ra na”. Read full review.
