Manila, Philippines--Brandon Rubendall (Wicked" U.S. Tour) joined Jenna Rubaii ("American Idiot" U.S. and International Tour), Tony winner David Gallo ("Drowsy Chaperone"), other casts, and creative team members on the stage at Solaire Resort and Casino's Eclipse Bar in a '70s redux-themed afternoon in the second press conference of the Asian touring production of hit Broadway and West End musical SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER.

Touted as "the first Filipino-produced musical for the world," SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER kicks off its Asian tour in a strictly limited one-month Manila run playing all weekends at The Theatre in Solaire Resort and Casino from July 3 to 26.

Brought to Asia by Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group (ATEG), Ten Bridges Media Corporation, and Robert Stigwood Organisation, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER combines Broadway talents (headlined by Rubendall, Rubaii, and Nick Varricchio) with seasoned homegrown Filipino talents such as Mikkie Bradshaw (who played the title role in ATEG's production of "Carrie the Musical") and Carla Guevara-Laforteza (who starred as Kim in the 1995-97 West End productions of "Miss Saigon" and more recently, Dragon in ATEG's 2014 production of "Shrek the Musical").

"We had casting sessions in New York and Manila, and as always, the people you are looking for will always stand out--and we're just very lucky to get those who really stood out to join our cast!" says multi-awarded musical theater director Bobby Garcia on the grueling process of casting the right actors to take on the lead roles first introduced by the eponymous 1977 John Badham American dance film that established John Travolta as the bell-bottomed finger-pointing, hip-strutting sex symbol for the ages.

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER also features Bibo Reyes as Bobby C, Nick Varricchio as Double J and Tony understudy, Jamie Wilson as Monty and Frank Manero, and Rafa Siguion-Reyna as Frank Manero Jr.
