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.  

Ang Pag-Uusig the return in CCP.

The award winning classic play of Tanghalang Pilipino is making a comeback this October at Tanghalang Huseng Batute of the Cultural Center of Philippines, this is the American classic and politically relevant “Ang Pag-Uusig” or The Crucible by Tony Award winning playwright Arthur Miller.
Along with Actors Company, this year’s rerun proves a lot in terms of acting performances, most its original cast are now doing dual roles, it’s a challenge for many of its actors specially on memorization part, this play had a kilo-metric lines. Compare to 30 rehearsals before, this revival only had 12 practice to perfect it.
I’ve never seen the first run in 2017, but this one really blow me away, it is intense and more eye connection to its characters, blocking in one stage format is surely admired same in the previous shows, script analysis is also use in this production to help all the actors give their best.
One notable change this time is the adaption of Filipino dress or Barong in the Act 2 of the play, somehow it makes you feel connected since majority of its audiences are Filipino, Ang Pag-Uusig is set in 1950’s base on the story with Latin American settings by Miller, but its theme and strong message can be conveyed in today’s time, in line with Tanghalang Pilipino tagline “Utak, Puso, Bayan”.
True to its original content, Ang Pag-Uusig tells a story of one village face with fear, greed and power, over telling the truth and telling a lie, using witchcraft as medium of condemning and making others suffer the consequences of the justice system.
Ang Pag-Uusig is still under the Direction of Dennis Marasigan, the translation to Filipino is by Jerry Respeto. Six Gawad Buhay awards won by this play last 2017 including Best Direction, Translation, Ensemble Performance in a play, and Male Lead Performance in a play.
Playing for four weekends, this play closes on October 28, 2018.Tickets are P1,000 (VIP), P8,000 (Bleachers) all are available at Ticketworld Online or thru CCP Box Office or call Tanghalang Pilipino Office at +632 823 1125 loc 1620 and +63 915 607 2275.
