The COVID-19 pandemic has presented immense challenges to industries around the world. With mobility restrictions in place, business owners had to rethink their operations and adjust to navigate the uncertainties in the new normal. Although some companies were able to adapt and seamlessly shift to the new norm, the process was not easy with many struggling with financial losses and temporary business closures. A survey from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) released September last year reported that the Philippine economy experienced the worst impacts of the pandemic. The Philippines logged the highest number of business closures and layoffs among its peers in Southeast Asia. Despite that, Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP and Head of PLDT & Smart Enterprise and International Business Groups, said that resilience is one of the core values that helped businesses conquer the challenges of the pandemic.

Dani Girl, its beautiful and heart breaking.

The much awaited Dani Girl, A musical about hope by The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical is the most beautiful local produced theater musical so far for 2019, it gives you a lot of realization about life, those simple things that we go beyond in daily grind yet we fail to recognize its effort.
Dani Girl is a journey of cancer patient Dani and her friend Marty, on how they accept their fate of living limited because of a deadly disease,  with the help of their guardian angel they try to find answer, why all people its them who need to suffer, why all people in the whole world, they are the one who have this disease that cure is not a sure win.
This year’s re-staging is really great, with the inclusions of visuals such as videos and graphics, it was more beautiful than you can imagine, of course all the music put together are superb to listen and well choreograph to please the audience.
The part that Dani needs to say goodbye to her mom after being in coma is such a heartbreaking scene, literally we are crying sympathizing with the grieving mom, if you’ve loss someone dear to you definitely you will be touched.
The play will let you understand that Cancer is not an enemy, everything exists for a reason and need to appreciate things in your surroundings, some little things that make you happy even for a short time is a joy to consider, and not all people experience that kind of feeling.

We are so grateful to see Felicity Kyle Napuli as Dani Girl, this kid is a gem in Philippine Theater along with Daniel Drilon playing as Marty, their singing and acting prowess is so believable. One commendable part is when Dani is talking to God, from a smokey stage to just a normal backstage is something to fathom, where all your questions is answer that raise in this play.

Tickets through Ticketworld online. Co-presented by The Sandbox Collective and 9 Works Theatrical, together with Make-A-Wish Philippines.
