Photo Flash: First Look at SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER New Asian Tour

Manila, Philippines-- Touted as "the first Filipino-produced musical for the world," SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER kicks off its new Asian tour in a strictly limited one-month run in Manila 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 features "Broadway Bares" favorite Brandon Rubendall ("Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark," "Wicked") as Tony Manero, Jenna Rubaii ("American Idiot") as Stephanie Mangano, and Nick Varricchio ("A Chorus Line," "Light in the Piazza") as Double J and Tony understudy.

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER also features a multinational cast that fuses together Broadway stars with homegrown Filipino talents such as Bibo Reyes (Bobby C), Jamie Wilson (Monty and Frank Manero), Rafa Siguion-Reyna (Frank Manero Jr.), and Carla Guevara-Laforteza (Flo Manero and Club Singer), among others.

Based on the wildly popular film of the same name, which starred Oscar nominated actor John Travolta, SATURDAY NIGHT FIVER tells the story of Italian-American Tony Manero (Rubendall) and his gang in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn who are stuck in dead-end jobs but rule the dance floor at the local discotheque 2001 Odyssey. Tony is a tough cookie; he dreams of becoming the disco king and escaping the mean streets of Brooklyn.

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER opened in the West End at the London Palladium in 1998 and on Broadway at the Minskoff Theatre in 1999. It has been seen by more than 10 million people with over 2,800 shows in more than 20 countries across the globe, thrilling theatergoers and music buffs alike till this very day.

Multi-awarded director Bobby Garcia, Broadway choreographer Vince Pesce, Tony Award-winning scenic designer David Gallo, Broadway lighting designer Paul Miller (who worked on the original production of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER), costume designer Eric Pineda, sound designer Michael Waters, technical director Richard Martin, projection designer GA Fallarme, and musical director Ceejay Javier comprise the show's first-rate creative team.

For tickets, call ATEG at (632) 650-51-44 or (63917) 838-15-34; or visit TicketWorld at ticketworld.com.ph.

Performances are also set at Istana Budaya (Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) from September 4 to 13 and at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands (10 Bayfront Ave., Singapore) from September 25 to October 4.
