A Musical Comedy From The Songs Of Apo, 'I Do Bidoo Bidoo', Looks Very Promising

WE’RE A GREAT fan of musicals so we have such high hopes for the very promising “I Do Bidoo Bidoo”, the musical comedy based on 18 songs of the APO, written and directed by Chris Martinez. It’s Unitel producer Tony Gloria who conceived of it 5 years ago. Chris then chose the most popular Tagalog songs from the best of APO that will fit the characters and help forward the story which is about “pamanhikan”, with the family of the bride and groom meeting each other.

The young lovers here are Sam Concepcion and Tippy Dos Santos. Sam’s parents are poor: Ogie Alcasid and Eugene Domingo. Tippy’s rich parents are Zsa Zsa Padilla and Gary Valenciano.

We ask them which are their favorite musicals?

Chris: ‘The Sound of Music’, ‘Chicago’ and ‘Cabaret’.

Ogie: (Nagpapakwela at first) “Dance o Rama” of Susan Roces. ‘Cinderella’.

Eugene: The zarzuela ‘Dalagang Bukid’, ‘Anything Goes’, ‘Singin’ in the Rain’.

Zsa Zsa: Local: ‘Katy’, ‘Rama at Sita’, ‘Larawan’, ‘Zsa Zsa Zaturnaaah’ with Eula Valdes. Foreign: ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Phantom of the Opera’.

Gary: Foreign: ‘West Side Story’. Local: ‘Larawan’, ‘Joseph The Dreamer’, ‘The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe’, ‘First Name’ which he produced for Trumpets in 1989 with Ogie writing a song for it.

Ogie then said he’d redeem himself after his “pakwela” choices and mentioned “Jesus Christ Superstar”.

We ourselves also like 'Singin' in the Rain', 'West Side Story' 'Phantom of the Opera', plus '7 Brides for the 7 Brothers', 'Brigadoon', 'Showboat', 'South Pacific', 'My Fair Lady', 'Camelot', 'Les Miz', 'Evita', 'Lion King' & 'Avenue Q.’
