BWW Review: 'Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!' Has The Right Amount of Nostalgia To Its Advantag Photo BWW Review: 'Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!' Has The Right Amount of Nostalgia To Its Advantage
by Jude Buot - Aug 6, 2018

The good news is that 'Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!,' an original Filipino play set into music by APO Hiking Society's hit songs, is like no other OPM jukebox musical we have seen in recent memory. Most of the jukebox musicals staged in Manila have an entirely fictional story (e.g. 'Ako si Josephine,' '3 Stars and a Sun' ) or have a plot that's leaning towards social commentary (e.g 'Rak of Aegis'), and, more often than not, try to repackage the sound of the original versions of the songs to make them more current and theatrical (e.g 'Ang Huling El Bimbo,' 'I Remember a Boy'). In their first foray into producing an original material, 9 Works Theatrical and Globe Live go for a more sentimental story, an ultimate throwback to the mid-1970s, with a plot that's loosely based on the early years of the original members of the APO Hiking Society.

BWW Review: NEWSIES Is Exceptionally Entertaining, Bursting With Raw Energy!
by Robert Encila - Jul 18, 2017

Disney's Newsies is a Tony Award-winning musical derived from the motion picture of the same title. Produced for the first time in Manila, it has commanded the day's headlines and kept a viewing public abuzz with excitement. We can assume Disney's ubiquitous brand had preceded its product, given the film's relative failure to draw critical and commercial acclaim in the early '90s. Considering its cult following after the release of the home video, it makes sense to bring musical theater back to its logical milieu where live performance of a Broadway musical is unparalleled. This production has been every bit as advertised: it's electric, witty, and poignant.
