It has been revealed that seasoned actors Jay Gonzaga and Via Antonio will be part of the cast of the upcoming “One More Chance” musical featuring the songs of nine-piece folk pop band Ben&Ben. The jukebox musical is an adaptation of the 2007 Star Cinema blockbuster movie of the same title which stars John Lloyd Cruz as Popoy and Bea Alonzo as Basha. Jay will be playing the role of Mark (the role that was played by Derek Ramsay) while Via will be playing the role of Anj (the role played by Beatriz Saw).
Roughly just weeks prior to the cast reveal, both Jay and Via were also part of the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2023 lineup as cast members of “Broken Hearts Trip” and “Rewind” respectively. Coincidentally, the “Rewind” Original Soundtrack also features the music of Ben&Ben, “Sa Susunod Na Habang Buhay” to be exact.
The musical, to be staged by the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), will run from April 12 to June 16, 2024 at the PETA Theater Center in Quezon City. For the duration of the musical, Jay will be alternating with Jef Flores while Via will be alternating with Dippy Arceo.
Ticketing and more show information is available on PETA’s social media pages.
