Eto na Musical nAPO, the review.

We all have stories to tell in any APO songs, but putting it in a musical play is something to we will look forward, most of our parents youth is definitely have a theme songs from APO that once became a TV noontime favorites.

Eto Na Musical nAPO has a comeback this 2019, I must say I am all excited and happy to see it recently and it did make me cry, but laugh more than I can recall. This 9 Works Theatrical production proves to me that no matter what age you are, if your country at stake you will make a stand and fight even if it cost you a life.

I am impressed with Jobim Javier who play butch, he got the right timing in cracking a funny scenes, I must say he is good in delivering punch lines that will make the audiences hold in their seats because of laugther, but the most beautiful singing act belongs to Floyd Tena as Rick, that Nakapagtataka part is magically executed with matching real rain drama.

This APO musical is presented in a way that you will see behind the staging, production people are on stage once in a while changing sets, and later on will became part of the stage production as it is in the story, I heard some people softly humming and can’t stop singing  lines as well during some numbers due to the good musicality, all the musical arrangements are perfectly in line as stage show and a not the jukebox we are familiar with.

Above all I see Eto na Musical nAPO as a story that revolves on friendship that was develop in school, let’s be honest those friends we have in school are the meaningful people in our lives, that’s why this musical surprise me in presenting a barkada that faces many issues yet survive to be better, plus of course the charm of APO music.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

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. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

The fun love in Momol Nights. Movie Review

Romantic Movie in Filipino setting takes another leap in Momol Nights, an iWant movie original streaming free online. The movie stars promising actress Kim Molina and Kit Thompson under the direction of Benedict Mique, Jr.
Having Molina in the cast you can expect a great comedy acting, from stage to TV series to Movies, Molina proves she can handle well in delivering all needed for a character that need to be seen and felt by the audience. And that’s the very reason I watch Momol nights, because that’s how I adore this promising actress that I’ve seen first in a theater production of “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading lady.”

However, it was the other way around as she expects m…
