About the Partnership

Globe, the #1 mobile brand in the Philippines, has always gone the extra mile to cater to the evolving lifestyle of its customers. Wanting to give a richer experience whether online or on-ground, Globe expanded its efforts to give Filipinos access to world-class content and entertainment with the launch of Globe LIVE and its concept of ‘accidental theater.’


Through Globe LIVE and its original live productions, content that used to be available only to a few, such as theater, was now easily enjoyed by many. By building a dynamic space like the entertainment zone at Globe Iconic Store BHS Amphitheater, Globe was able to open up a whole new venue for more inclusive events.


The first and only open-air theater concept in the country, Globe LIVE had a banner launch with its first ever full-on Filipino theatrical production in partnership with 9Works Theatrical, Green Day’s American Idiot


Further validating its success is its recent major wins at the coveted Broadway World Philippines Awards for 2016. Globe LIVE and 9Works Theatrical’s Green Day’s American Idiot gained recognition in 8 significant categories:


●  Best Choreography (Musical)—PJ Rebullida

●  Best Crossover Artist (Mainstream to Theater)—Jason Fernandez

●  Best Direction of a Musical—Robbie Guevarra

●  Best Featured Actor (Musical)— Basti Artadi

●  Best Featured Actress (Musical)— Alex Godinez

●  Best Hair & Make-up Design—Myrene Santos

●  Best Locally Produced Broadway Show (Musical/Play)—American Idiot

●  Best Musical Direction (Musical)—Daniel Bartolome/Onyl Torres


Staying true to its commitment of creating more world-class productions, the audience can look forward to the annual A Christmas Carol holiday production in December, as well as Globe LIVE’s latest venture with 9Works—Disney’s internationally acclaimed musical, Newsies.





"Disney's NEWSIES is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)"
