Opening act unmasked
America’s No.1 dance crew is ready to bust its moves on the sparkling new Jupiters Theatre stage, writes
MUS.I.C, pronounced ‘muse-i-see’, will take up residence in Jupiters Theatre until mid August – the first in-season show to play the venue after its $20 million refit.
Rynan Paguio has been part of the group since it formed in 2003 and says the show is all about positive influences in the guys’ lives.
‘‘I am constantly inspired by music and I’m inspired by life and keeping positive,’’ he says.
‘‘The show focuses on our muses’ music and celebrates that.
‘‘There’s theatrics, movement to sound, acting, dancing, comedy – it will make you laugh and there are times where it will make you cry because it’s so moving.
‘‘It’s really like no other show.’’
The production has been in development since the group began and has taken months to perfect – but it’s not without injury.
Paguio himself has had two knee injuries with subsequent surgeries but says it comes with the territory.
‘‘We recover, we keep fit and we get back on stage,’’ he says.
‘‘We deal with muscle pain, minor injuries and those types of things all the time.’’
MUS.I.C is directed by So You Think You Can Dance star choreographers and Emmy nominees Tabitha and Napoleon.
