Filipino-Australian rocker and Broadway star Mig Ayesa is in the country to star in the Philippine production of Rock of Ages.
Mig Ayesa became popular here in the Philippines when he joined the CBS singing reality show Rock Star: INXS. He had a third place finish and it paved way for a recording contract with Decca/Universal Music Group.
Before Rock Star, however, he has been in the entertainment industry for quite some time, fronting various bands and acting in television and film.
He had his Broadway debut in 2010 with Burn The Floor. On the same year, he went on a US tour playing Stacee Jaxx in Rock of Ages. He reprised the role one year after during the show’s re-opening in Broadway.
Mig Ayesa will also be doing Stacee Jaxx in the Philippine production of the show.
Joining Mig in the musical are Vina Morales and Nyoy Volante. This is Vina’s debut in theater and according to her, the stint made her being a performer complete. She will be doing the role of Sherrie, an aspiring actress who ended up taking a job as a stripper.
Vina’s role is sexy but the singer-actress says it’s fun and she looks forward to all the scenes.
Directed by Chari Arespacochaga, Rock of Ages will be staged at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of the RCBC Plaza in Makati City from June 15 to July 8, 2012.
