The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS -

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.
