Further building out an immersive sonic world, gold-certified pop phenom  AJ Mitchell  has officially released a new single entitled “ STOP .” The song is the next chapter to be unveiled from his anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Skyview , due out this year and executive produced by Mike Dean.  The track pairs a thumping bass line and flurry of funk guitar with a showstopping vocal performance. He delivers charismatic verses before igniting the instantly unshakable hook, “I don’t wanna stop, baby it’s our time . ” “STOP” continues the journey that was set in “ CAMERAS ON ,” released late last Month. The conceptual lyric video shared today picks up where “ CAMERAS ON ” left off. While “ CAMERAS ON ” depicts the story of AJ dealing with the darker sides of fame and his previous experiences with the content collective Team 10, the new lyric video finds him walking away from the cameras to the stage, depicting his passion and dedication to the music and what truly matters.  

Twin Bill Theatre Launches with “Dog Sees God” for Fringe Manila 2016

 
The Cast and Crew of "Dog Sees God."

So what happens to the Peanuts characters when they grow up? Twin Bill Theatre tries to answer this with their premier production, “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead”.

As an “unauthorized parody”, Bert Royal’s “Dog Sees God” deconstructs Peanuts with tales of bullying, homophobia, violence, sex, drugs and suicide among teenagers. This dark comedy was first staged at the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival.
CB’s (Charlie Brown) dog died. This sad incident made him ask his friends where we go after we die. He then develops a connection with Beethoven, who he called fag when they were younger.  This irked one of CB’s close buddies Matt that led to a violent confrontation. Beethoven committed “suicide”.
Dog Sees God could be a mishmash of different characters but it has its own charm with its humour and mature subjects. The actors could all sound the same but they could entertain.
Twin Bill Theatre aims to produce plays in intimate and unusual venues. Dog Sees God is in a bakery. But no, you can’t throw bread at the actors. You won’t.

Dog Sees God is directed by Steven Conde. CB will be played by Nel Gomez. Vince Lim plays Beethoven and Brian Sy plays Matt. Other members of the cast are Maronne Cruz, Gab Medina, Sarah Facuri, Kathleen Francisco and Camille Velicaria.
This production is also part of the Fringe Manila 2016 which runs from February 10 to 28. Dog Sees God is staged at the Staple and Perk Bakery at Ecoplaza, Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati.

Verdict: B. Bert Royal also wrote the movie Easy A. So there. So fetched. Wait, that was from Mean Girls.
