'Mamma Mia' Cast Gives Standing Ovation To Club Mwah Performers

MANILA, Philippines - No less than the cast of "Mamma Mia" gave a standing ovation to our very own Follies de Mwah when they went to watch the show at Club Mwah in Mandaluyong City.

Club Mwah co-owner Pocholo Malillin said dress code became very democratic that night - skimpy shorts, sleeveless toppers and sandos, beach sandals. It was understandable since the guys had just wrapped up a performance at the CCP and they had barely time to dress up.

Most applauded were the impersonations of Grammy Award winner Patti LaBelle ("Somewhere Over The Rainbow"), Christina Aguilera ("Burlesque"), Jennifer Hudson ("And I'm Telling You" from "Dreamgirls"), Beyoncé ("Dreamgirls") and excerpts from the musical film "Chicago."

Most hilarious, at least for the London-based entertainers, was the spoof of Cameron MacKintosh's "Miss Saigon" which debuted on the same stage where "Mamma Mia" also first performed - West End Theater!

Club Mwah is the only accredited Tourism Entertainment Club in the country. It has been hailed Aliw Awards as "Asia Pacific Most Outstanding Entertainment Theater Club." Club Mwah is open 7:30 p.m. every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Shows start at 9:30 p.m. For more information, visit their website at www.clubmwah.com or pocholomalillin@yahoo.com.
