New challenges for Nikki, Nora

/ 08:52 PM August 12, 2011

PIMENTEL AND AUNOR. A song for the Superstar.

Nikki Gil was discovered in 2003, singing in a Coke commercial while walking the sidewalks of Manila. Soon, she was seen on TV (“Nagsimula sa Puso,” “Pieta” and “Tonyong Bayawak”); waxing records (“I Gotta Go My Own Way,”) and distinguishing herself in theater (“Legally Blonde”).

These days, she portrays Charity Hope Valentine, a dance hall hostess in search of Mr. Right, in the Neil Simon-Bob Fosse stage classic, “Sweet Charity.”


The musical runs at RCBC theater until Aug. 27. Call 557-5860.


Looking for Guy

Nora Aunor has invaded the august halls of the Justice dept., with Leila de Lima admitting to being a Noranian and sharing that the Superstar’s starrer with Manny de Leon, “Tell Nora I Love Her,” was filmed entirely in her family’s home in Iriga.

Incidentally, Bing Pimentel, wife and mother of Aquilino and Koko, respectively, told us that she’s also been raring to get in touch with the actress, because she has written a song for her. Nora was present at Bing’s intimate 70th birthday celebration in LA in 2008.

Bing is the producer-songwriter of “Cory, the Musical,” which will be restaged at Meralco Theater on Aug. 20-21, in observance of Ninoy Aquino’s death anniversary.

Call 926-3930 for the Aug. 20 matinee, 882-0678 loc. 307 for the 7:30 p.m. show, and 0922 843-8397 for the Aug 21, 8 p.m. performance.
