by Jude Buot on November 20, 2017 in Philippines

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...)

by Jude Buot on November 02, 2017 in Philippines

Do not let your unfamiliarity with the 1968 movie stop you from watching Resorts World Manila's newest production, Ian Flemming's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. In fact, in this case, having very limited knowledge prior to watching the show (we are, of course, aware of the flying car since it is being used in the show's promotional advertisements) made the experience more thrilling and enjoyable. Thus, in this review, we shall afford you with the same courtesy and not give too many details about the story. If you happen to know the movie, trust us, this production can still dazzle you with enough charm, making it a satisfying time at the theatre. (more...)

The hills are truly alive with the arrival of London's West End production's The Sound of Music.
