CIRCUIT MAG: It’s Gonna Be The 80s Again

by Toff de Venecia

“I am not a child of the 80s. I was born in 1986 and spent the majority of the decade feeding off a baby bottle. But given the recent 80s revival, I may as well as be.”

From shoulder pads, to denim on denim, to Jackson appreciation at its all-time high, everyone from teens to the teenaged at heart are rip and roaring with a renewed 80s sense and sensibility.  Even the theater scene has joined the fray and capitalized on this unprecedented 80s revival.

Enter 9 Works Theatrical’s The Wedding Singer based on the New Line Cinema Film starring the well-loved tandem of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. When Robbie is dumped in the altar by longtime girlfriend Linda, he plunges into dumpster-level despair. But with the help of waitress Julia Sullivan, Robbie rediscovers why he was all about the love in the first place.

Here are seven reasons why you should catch The Wedding Singer, the play and we’re definitely sure you’ll fall in love with the story all over again.

1.    Gian Magdangal, who played Roger in RENT last February, will be plucking on his guitar strings as Robbie Hart.

2.    Iya Villania makes a theatrical comeback. The ASAP mainstay once appeared in a local production of Footloose as Ariel Moore opposite Jay-R.

3.    TV personality and actress Nikki Valdez also returns to the stage as Julia’s bubbly and uninhibited cousin Holly.

4.    The show features the hit song, “Grow Old With You,” popularized by Sandler in the film version.

5.    There will be a familiar face from the 80s Philippine socio-political scene making an appearance in the show’s second act.

6.    From the costumes to the choreography, the show is tailor-made to celebrate the 80s.

7.    Director Robbie Guevara interjects, “One word to describe Wedding Singer? FUN!”
