More horror in Sindak 1941. Theater Review.

Philippine Stagers Foundation, Inc is identified in producing grand spectacle theater play that is base on history that shapes our nation, mostly watch by different schools, State Colleges and Universities throughout the Philippines, their latest production, Sindak 1941 is an added laurel to their growing list of hits.
In Sindak 1941, is the newly enhance and complete story of their previous play entitled “Filipinas 1941”, a story of two brothers trying to earn a living in a time there is no God, a time the Japanese occupy The Philippines with no mercy.
Sindak or scary stand to its title, it did show a lot of scary and miserable things experience by Filipino in the arms of the Japanese military, the unforgettable Bataan Death March, the comfort women issues and mass killing, and the so-called hero of World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur.
The play is so brave in pointing out some wrong notion, in correcting some historical facts that its writer and director, Vince Tanada is standing on pointing out that MacArthur receives a lump sum amount of money from Philippine government, in order to fulfill his promise to return and save the country.
Sindak at some point is loud, fast-changing a scene one from another, gloriously orchestrated production numbers that are considered heavy yet eye candy to see with all its colors and music. Choreography is executed well in all numbers to a point some are unnecessary due to the fact, it is presenting a murderous act. But I salute the music, its good and really conveyed a message, our favorite song is “Kung Wala Ka Man” that can pass as a love song in pop culture.
Stagers prove in many times they can really act well whatever the stage they are in, it shows how good they can change emotions up to hardcore pause moment that a scene requires them, PSF luminaries Patrick Libao, Adelle Barrientos, Chris Lim, Oj Bacoor Kath Medina, and Cherry Bagtas are some notable actors who did shine in Sindak. Tanada’s humor and punchline add so much flavor that gives breath to its audiences.
Big applause in Sindak is how he makes his audience cry, most of the bloggers invited during its regular show in Star Theater recently did shed a tear when Felipe die in the lap of his brother Nestor, and calling for hope to his undivided nation, that he still adore and love until his last breath.
It may sound nationalistic, but its more on a grand production numbers with all magical lights and beautiful costumes, PSF Sindak is a living dream of educating the young mind of this tragic past presented in a more organize theater production, that only PSF can deliver.
The musical SINDAK 1941 opens last July 11, 2019, and will run up to March 2020, to be shown in various theatre venues all over Metro Manila and select venues in various provinces all over the Philippines.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal.

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.”
In Momol Nights which is acronym for Make out, Make Out Lang style of dating that usually involve lust or sex and nothing else, the movie is centered on Molina’s to die for searching for a man of her dreams, and achieving that is taking an option of One Night Stand only to give in her desire of finding Mr. Right. However, it was the other way around as she expects m…

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
