Mig Ayesa stars in Broadway’s ‘Burn the Floor’

By GoodNews Pilipinas

MANILA–Filipino-Australian International singer MiG Ayesa makes his Broadway debut as the lead male vocalist in the hit musical Burn the Floor from January 5-10 at the Longacre Theatre on 48th Street and Broadway.

MiG is replacing Ricky Rojas as the lead vocalist for the final week of the musical of the New York run before it embarks on a world tour in countries like Australia, Japan, Korea, Canada and then back to the US.

The broadway hit is described as a spectacular, sweaty, sexy celebration of ballroom dancing that was first developed and performed in Bournemouth, England, over 10 years ago before coming to the Great White Way.

MiG burst into the international entertainment scene after he finished third in the CBS reality search Rockstar: INXS.

MiG is excited despite the short run because this is his first taste of Broadway, and it may open other doors on Broadway.

Although MiG has played leads on stage in London’s West End (We Will Rock You, Rent and Buddy) and in Australia (Grease, Fame, Rent, West Side Story, Buddy), sang on television shows, performed in concert tours (Thriller: Live!, Queen Symphonic Spectacular, The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber), played vampire on a film (Queen of the Damned) and released his self-titled debut CD through Decca/Universal, he considers his Broadway project a very important milestone in his career as Broadway is the ultimate dream of any theater performers around the globe.

At the moment, MiG is in the middle of recording his follow-up CD, due for release in the first half of 2010. Earlier, he released a riveting composition called United As One (Kasama Mo Ako) as a tribute to the Filipino nation following the massive destruction wrought by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.
