She took the Broadway stage for the last time for the Tony Award-winning revival of “Once On This Island” yesterday, June 25. Her last show ended with a very emotional goodbye right in front of the audience as everyone clapped and chanted her name.



MYX caught up with the acclaimed performer after her performance and asked her what’s next on her list of plans.



“I’m going home!” she excitedly said in the video. “I’m going home and then I’m going to do ‘Annie’ at the Hollywood Bowl. That’s it. Just gonna live my life and enjoy my life.”

Lea is set to play Grace Farrell, secretary to Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, in the famed musical for three performances this July, according to Broadway World.

With only “Annie” in her immediate plans for the future, what do you think Lea should do next?

Since 2013, she’s been a coach on “The Voice of the Philippines” along with its kids and teens editions. Should she go back to coaching the emerging talents our country has to offer?

There have also been talks of a reunion movie between her and her “Bakit Labis Kiting Mahal” leading man Aga Muhlach. Fans of their tandem LeAga have grown since their “Sana Maulit Muli” days and they’ve been patiently waiting for their beloved stars to return with another hit.

Is this finally Lea’s chance to work on the film?

There’s also a chance that she’ll be picked up by yet another Broadway show. With famed musicals like “Les Miserables,” “Miss Saigon,” “Cats,” “My Fair Lady,” and now “Once On This Island” under her belt, she’s definitely a sought-after performer!

Will she represent the Philippines abroad once again?
