Rachelle Ann Go to extend her stay in London to focus on theater after Miss Saigon


101614-rachelle_main.jpgRachelle Ann Go is back briefly in the Philippines since last Monday and will be heading back to London tonight, October 16, 2014. In a pocket presscon, the singer shared details about her Miss Saigon journey to the press. The singer remarked that joining Miss Saigon has helped her evolve as a performer and as a person.

"Na-experience ko sa Miss Saigon well unang-unaang dami kong natutuan, yun ang lagi kong sinasabi feeling ko na nag-grow ako as an artist and as a person. Seven months marami bilang mag-isa lang ako don. First two months, yung rehearsal naming, straight Miss Saigon [rehearsals] and ang damingadjustments na naganap bilang mag-isa lang ako, bilang wala si mama sa tabi ko. Mahirap at first pero ngayon siguro nagi-enjoy na ako sa ginagawa ko. Kabisang-kabisado ko na yung role ko bilang Gigi na minsan iniiba ko na yung atake ng mga
kanta, yung atake ng acting ko so ang sarap mag-experiment din," she said.
 
Rachelle relayed that she will be focusing on theater for awhile. "I enjoy doing theater eh sampung
taon ako sa industriya [ngshowbiz] at na-enjoy ko yung ginagawa ko - pop music, TV and after that nakita ko yung sarili ko na ibang-iba ako, ibang Rachelle yung nagawa ko sa theater na Little Mermaid, Tarzan, iba yung joy na nakukuha ko. Iba yung fulfillment na nakuha ko yung nagawa ko yung Miss Saigon so feeling ko magtagagal pa ako satheater."

Her contract in the Miss Saigon production will end in May next year. She said that she is still
thinking if she will still be extending her stint in the musical production. "Contract ko hanggang May 2015. Pero kinausap kami last week na don't worry about it hindi naman lahat kayo papalitan. Ano next month tatanungin na kami kung sino ang gustong mag-stay sa company at ano yung gustong role na gagawin namin next or kung may gusto kaming gawing ibang musical."

But she stressed that she will definitely stay in London to do theater. "Kasi for me, yun na yung opportunity eh parang nagbukas na yung pintuan don eh, ang daming dumadating, recording tapos concert na hindi ko in-expect na sobrang nakaka-amaze ang lahat nangyayari."
