“Naniniwala ako na comedy is a nice barometer for social tension, magandang magkaroon ng one hour and half relief from traffic, prizes, headlines, and we realize na ang dalawang super headlines grabber ay ang dalawang presidenteng etu, hopefully after an hour or two with each other ma-realize nila na ang mga bagay na pinagbigyan mong matawanan ng kunti, can heal and you move on the next day to live again.” Santos said
After 30 years of doing political comedy, Santos admit that having PETA this time will add some changes that in line with the theater advocacy, Trumperte will have open forum segment after the show where in the audiences can ask questions anything in line with the content of the show.

“May Q and A, first time ko magkaroon ng talkback, my sharing after the show na nakatanggal na ang make up, haharap ako sa kanila, maybe to talk a little bit about the process, andun yung E ng PETA, educational and truly inspiring, nakaka-nerbyos hope I can answer all the questions.” Santos added.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous.
