Adding Oscar-Nominated Song 'Suddenly' to LES MIS Stage Remains UncertainAdding Oscar-Nominated Song 'Suddenly' to LES MIS Stage Remains Uncertain
by Oliver Oliveros - Nov 2, 2015

'If you don't have a camera zooming straight into the eyes or catching a close-up of a hand touching another hand, it doesn't work,' said Claude-Michel Schonberg, the French composer of now 30-year-old musical 'Les Miserables' (Les Mis), when asked about the possibility of adding the Oscar-nominated song 'Suddenly,' especially written for the 2012 movie adaptation, to 'Les Mis' onstage.

BWW Review: #popepular Thinks Global, Acts LocalBWW Review: #popepular Thinks Global, Acts Local
by Oliver Oliveros - Sep 13, 2015

To think globally and act locally in the current age of globalization might seem a little bit of a cliche; 'but it's far less common for [global] companies to really get it right because it's not just about [having] a local language website,' says The Economist. 'It means being where your customer is, speaking to them in their own language and, crucially, having culturally relevant messages and content.' Where most of these companies fail repeatedly, grassroots theater company Philippine Stagers Foundation (PSF) successfully embraces the decades-old mantra, especially resounding and resplendent in its current touring production, '#popepular: Pa'no Kung Pinoy Si Kiko?,' a new Filipino musical in Tagalog (Filipino).

BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN International Tour 2015BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN International Tour 2015
by Rocky Christopher Fajardo - Sep 9, 2015

You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN is theatrical proof of how this age-old formula can work wonders. With syrupy and infectious melodies, stunning choreography and visually-stunning sets, this monumentally theatrical homage to the most beloved classics in the Nacio Brown and Arthur Freed canon perfectly fits the bill for a 'Mary J. Blige Pre-Approved' musical- it is uncomplicated, lavish technicolor entertainment--without the drama. (more...)

Reflections: What SINGIN' IN THE RAIN Lacks in Star Power, It Makes Up for In Extended Scenes, Live SpectacleReflections: What SINGIN' IN THE RAIN Lacks in Star Power, It Makes Up for In Extended Scenes, Live Spectacle
by Oliver Oliveros - Jul 28, 2015

When compared to SUNSET BOULEVARD, which follows the same classic film-to-stage pedigree as SINGIN' IN THE RAIN and tackles the same dilemma of making the transition from silent films to talkies in the 1920s - albeit of psychological melodrama in genre compared to the latter's rollicking parody - SUNSET BOULEVARD had big stars of stage and screen who headlined West End and Broadway. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN did not delve into such stunt casting from the onset - unless you consider Tommy Steele, who originated the role of Don Lockwood in the West End, as big as Elvis Presley or Gene Kelly, the silver screen's original Lockwood.
