Titser ko si La Salle. Theater review.

Being a Teacher is one noble profession, they are the true unsung heroes of what we achieve in life, they are the first people who give us the foundation to face the world, and be competitive to whatever life may bring.

Harlequin Theatre Guild of De La Salle University latest production of “Titser Ko Si La Salle” is a tribute for teachers, in line with Tercentenary Celebrations of St. La Salle’s Legacy, it’s a trilogy of short play presented in one show,
The first act is “Ang Projector Ni Ma’am” a family over passion story of a Teacher who wants to elevate his teaching style using technology but lacking funds to support it, this is for a fact that her own son needs money for medical care. Written by Dr.Genevieve Asenjo is light to watch since it was presented with musical numbers, however, the ending part is confusing because it was abrupt and the main issue is not resolved.
Next one is “Tser”, a teacher to the barrio story that was inspired by her students and vice versa, this is the funniest part of the trilogy, the casts are all good in timing and throwing punch lines, however this is the darkest story among the three, it involves violence and a lot of crying, while the main lead, Teacher Rose is doing a lot of monologues a sort of letter reading of what his situation and achievements, to her far away mom. That “Pipit” song number is so cute to watch.
“Lesson Plan” is the last act that tells a biography of a teacher, that because of her vocation in teaching, her love story suffers, and ended alone. Joana De Leon is playing the old teacher Rebecca with alter ego portraying the young Rebecca where the “Kilig” happens, but the true salvation of this act is the co-teachers, they all provide the laughter’s needed to feel the good vibe as the show end.
“Titser ko si La Salle” under the Direction of Raffy Tejada made us realize that Teacher’s contributions most of the time are taken for granted, some thought that its just a job that few appreciates, yes they were given tributes and we even celebrates Teachers Day, but its more than the profession, it’s a passion and advocacy to some, to shape the mind of so-called future of our motherland.
This three-story play in one production opens last Aug 1, 2019, at Teresa Yuchengco Auditorium at DLSU campus in Taft Avenue, Manila, it will run today Aug 2 with 4 pm and 7:30 show, until Aug 3 with 10:30 am and 3 pm show. Please bring school materials such as bags, notebooks, pen, and pencil as a donation, part of the play is giving those things in public and remotest school in the country as part of the guild outreach program.

The ticket is priced at P300 and for reservation and inquiry you may contact Dia Alvaro at 0967.263.5187. or check DLSU Harlequin Theatre Guild Facebook page for more information.

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.”
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…
