by Jude Buot - Nov 20, 2017

It makes perfect sense that Repertory Philippines (REP) chose to end its 50th-anniversary celebrations with the staging of a big musical like Hair. First, the said musical is also commemorating the 50th anniversary of its first staging Off-Broadway. Second, as the musical talks about the dawning of a new era or the age of Aquarius, REP as a theater company is ushering in new milestones in its next 50 years. Hair also promotes a sense of community and togetherness, in line with REP's 50th-anniversary slogan Come Home to REP. (more...)

BWW Review: The Bible Preaches, But GODSPELL Asks
by BWW Staff - Jun 22, 2016

Just because this is a Stephen Schwartz musical does not mean there will be someone painting with all the colors of the wind, nor will there be any gravity-defying witches, nor a hunchback. Yes, this is a Bible story, but do not expect Moses to be there even if you believe. And yes, there could be ever, ever after but there are no singing animals present. This is simply MusicArtes Inc.'s production of GODSPELL. (more...)
