John Storie is musician / showman with a true comical wit, and abundant skills on the guitar. His new album'Ponderosa' is a folksy throwback to his early days, and some swinging straight ahead jazz. He recorded the album so it would hold different guitar sounds, texture and vocals. He is a longtime showman with much to sing about.

IF/THEN is a dramatization of the concept of opportunity cost. How different might your life be because you went to the park an hour later than you planned or lingered there a little longer? How much of life's trajectory is informed by choice as opposed to coincidence or what is 'supposed' to be? How could your seemingly inconsequential afternoon fundamentally change not only your life but also the lives of your friends and family? IF/THEN has a lot of thoughts on those questions... the overall reward is worthwhile.

'She's perfect!' That was our immediate reaction after seeing The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical's restaging of a?oeDani Girla?? at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at RCBC Plaza in Makati. We are, of course, alluding to Felicity Kyle Napuli, who is gifted with such a pristine singing voice and, at such a young age, exhibits incredible acting maturity. With this remarkable performance (she was last seen as young Nala in the first international tour of Disney's a?oeThe Lion Kinga?? and as one of the lead actors in a?oeMatilda The Musicala??), Napuli is undoubtedly the child actor to watch for in the Manila theater scene.

CHICAGO, the John Kander and Fred Ebb musical, written with the guiding hand of Bob Fosse, has the ability like no other to follow an inhale of razzle-dazzle with a deeply disturbing exhale of political distrust. This musical, now on stage at the Winnipesaukee Playhouse, is proof enough. At a recent performance, laughs and applause had a way of dissolving into thoughtful reflection on America's present state, as the show's depictions of violence and 'fake news' revealed themselves, smuggled in under the cover of Jazz Age decadence.
