An artist's perspective of Ayala Land's latest project, the Circuit, which will rise in the former Sta. Ana race track

MANILA, Philippines -- Here's good news for fans of plays and musicals: a new performing arts venue will soon rise in Makati.

Called the Circuit Theater, the indoor venue at the heart of Makati's retail and business district will be designed so "it's good enough for Broadway," Meann Dy, strategic landbank management group head of the local property giant Ayala Land Inc., told reporters on Wednesday.

It will have a seating capacity of 1,500, with a stage that measures 96 square meters and an orchestra pit that can accommodate at least 60 musicians.

"Wouldn't it be nice to have a CCP in Makati? To catch a world-class musical after work without needing to undertime and rush out of the business district just to catch a 7 p.m. performance?" Dy said, noting how the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Pasay City is "too far" for office workers.
