Off to Manila!

Hunchback has wrapped in La Mirada and Eric is in Manila, Philippines for his next project:
Fun Home, the Tony award winning show in which he will co-star with his Broadway Les Miserables partner, Lea Salonga.  The show will run from November 10-27, 2016 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium.

FUN HOME is the most awarded and acclaimed musical of 2015, winning 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical.   When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. FUN HOME is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, FUN HOME features music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by Lisa Kron. The New York Times calls it, “THE BEST NEW MUSICAL TO OPEN ON BROADWAY.”  Both, Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron are scheduled to grace Opening Night of what will be the first international production of FUN HOME in Manila this November for a limited run of 18 performances only, starring Tony-Award winner, Lea Salonga opposite Broadway actor Eric Kunze.
