BWW Reviews: Trumpets' Triumphant Comeback
October 4, 2013

A long delayed follow-up to 2009's N.O.A.H. (No Ordinary Aquatic Habitat), Trumpets' new production 'The Bluebird of Happiness,' a musical adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck's play of the same name, featuring music by Rony Fortich and book and lyrics by Jaime del Mundo, tells a story set on Christmas Eve, at the height of the frustration of siblings Mytyl and Tyltyl over not having the material things they think would make their lives better.

BWW Reviews: SA WAKAS, The Story of Us
April 22, 2013

'Sa Wakas' has garnered mostly rave reviews since the new Filipino musical opened at PETA-PHINMA Theater two weeks ago. After finally catching the show last weekend, we were glad to see that it isn't all hype. 'Sa Wakas' is the type of show you will tell your friends about because you want to share something special with them. It is the type of show you would want people to see because they may have walked the same path once similar to one of the characters. Seeing it onstage also calls to mind gut wrenching conversations you may have had over a few rounds of beer.

BWW Reviews: THE GRADUATE by Repertory Philippines
April 9, 2013

During Act One of 'The Graduate,' Benjamin Braddock exclaims brattishly that his father and everyone his father knows are grotesque. We think there couldn't be a more appropriate description to what follows in the next hour of the play.
