And Zás… He’s coming !!! The show Chaves – A Musical Tribute already has its debut scheduled for the day August 23rd, at the Opus Theater (Shopping VillaLobos), in Sao Paulo. The musical will honor the genius of comedy Roberto Gómez Bolaños and all its legacy, which entertains and thrills different generations until today.
This is the first production of its kind endorsed and licensed by the Chespirito Group, and SBT. The montage promises to surprise fans of the show – and the general public – with an unprecedented script by the music director Fernanda Maia and general direction of Zé Henrique de Paula, both known by musicals as Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 and Urinal – the Musical. The show will be permeated by classic songs from the series and new compositions. Chaves – A Musical Tribute is presented by Ministry of Citizenship and Twitter. The achievement is Adriana Del Claro, in partnership with Move Concerts.
Tickets will be available for sale from June 27 through the website uhuu.com and Teatro Opus box office. More information will be released soon.
Comedy genius Roberto Gómez Bolaños won over children and adults from all over the world with his simple and charismatic humor, creating characters who served as inspiration for different generations of actors, comedians and writers. For that, it had as reference (and paid homage) classic names of the comedy. It is possible to find records of the Mexican artist composing sketches that allude to comedians like Charles Chaplin, Jerry Lewis and the duo Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel (The fat and the thin).
That was how the idea of creating an unprecedented script that not only brought back that playful, innocent and homesick atmosphere of the village in the series, but also gave hints of Bolaños’ life and his trajectory as a great master of the performing arts and the clown.
Even though this is not an “episode of Chaves transposed to the stage”, but a tribute with an unprecedented history, the musical will faithfully reproduce the best known scenario of Bolaños’ career – Vila do Chaves -, curated by the Group Chespirito and SBT, to involve the audience even more in the affective memory of the show’s world. In addition to Chaves, many other iconic characters will be onstage at the Opus Theater and the public will be delighted with the delicacies of Seu Madruga, Quico, Chiquinha, Mr. Barriga, among others. Viewers can also expect good surprises during presentations.
For more than 45 years on show in Mexico, Chaves is a case of worldwide success, with broadcasts in Italy, France, South Korea, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, Argentina, Peru, Panama, Puerto Rico and the United States. In Brazil, the episodes will turn 35 on the air in August; and are currently shown on channels SBT and Multishow.
