Every year, the world produces more electronic waste (e-waste) than the last due to advancements in technology that shorten the average life spans of gadgets and electronics. According to the Global E-waste Monitor 2020 report, the world generated about 53.6 million metric tons (Mt) of e-waste in 2019, a 21-percent jump from 44.4 Mt in 2014. It is projected to increase to 74.7 Mt. by 2030. What makes e-waste worse compared to most other types of waste is that, if not correctly disposed of, it can release dangerous chemicals like lead, mercury, and lithium, which are toxic to the environment, most especially to humans. Exposure to these chemicals can lead to life-threatening complications such as poisoning, immune system disorders, and even cancer, to name a few. Hence, it is essential to dispose of e-waste responsibly and in an organized manner. Not only will this help ensure human safety and health, but it will also help minimize the negative impact of its disposal on the environment.

Showcase of exceptional talents at Into The Woods.

Upstart Productions present, Into the Woods

Once upon a time, there was a story staged on Broadway with good music and concept. The creators put a modern and dark twist on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales. It was spectacular. It was even made into a film very recently.

Then some Filipinos thought of staging Into the Woods with some of the great actors in the country. Here's the thing, I have a huge problem with Broadway plays produced in Manila, presented as it is, especially that the film version is still at the height of fame. It becomes just a showcase of the actors' talents. It's just like watching a local Sunday noon-time show. Upstart's production latest production is just like that. 

It's like watching a school play with really exceptional acting. Staging it in a real garden, with real trees as the backdrop, was a very good idea. However, there was failure in other technical aspects. The props and costumes looked like the producers ran out of budget. I was expecting something more luxurious since it was based from fairy tales. The presentation of the entire musical lacked imagination. I thought that during the rehearsals they would always conclude "Sige, okay na yan.", when they could have done more. 
The Wife and the Baker scene.
Luckily, the actors delivered. Rachel Alejandro shined as the Witch, made me wished she would do more theatre. Other famous actors like Julienne Mendoze and Noel Trinidad also dazzled on stage.

Verdict: C+. I did not even write a synopsis because you probably have watched the film or even the Broadway production.
