Lea Salonga may be a Tony Award-winning Broadway star, but she is also a doting mother to her daughter, Nicole Chien. And it seems that her 11-year-old unica hija has also been bitten by the acting bug! Lea, being the proud mama that she is, shared the awesome news on Twitter that Nicole is joining the Philippine staging of the Broadway hit, Roald Dahl's Matilda, The Musical.
Nicole also happens to be a singer like her mom and will be making her stage debut playing the role of Lavender, one of Matilda's schoolmates.
It's probably no surprise that Nicole was drawn to musical theater, having grown up watching productions all over the world—her mom's included.
Can't wait to catch you on stage, Nicole! XOXO
Matilda, The Musical is produced by Atlantis Productions and will run from November 10 to December 10 at the Meralco Theater. For tickets, click here.
