“It is a great privilege to bring this cherished Rodgers & Hammerstein musical to Manila, particularly at this time of global recovery.  Our goal is to celebrate the spirit of musicals and sing ‘Do-Re-Mi’ with audiences everywhere!  We are thrilled to light the Broadway musical torch once again in Manila, and to perform this fantastic production in The Philippines.” Simone Genatt and Marc Routh, Co-Founders and Producers of Broadway International Group said in a joint statement.
