LJ Reyes, who was nominated for a Philstage Gawad Buhay Award for Outstanding Female Featured Performance in a Play for her role in Tanghalang Pilipino’s Juego de Peligro, wins Best Actress for the film Anino sa Likod ng Buwan.
LJ REYES 'BAPTISM OF FIRE IN TANGHALANG PILIPINO'S "DANGEROUS LIAISONS". TV and Film actress LJ Reyes is poised to conquer the stage as she debuts in Juego de Peligro, Tanghalang Pilipino's much awaited adaptation of "Dangerous Liaisons". Tanghalang Pilipino's adaptation relocates the story of the 18th century novel in Intramuros, Manila during the last years of the Spanish regime. LJ plays Señora Teresa (the character famously portrayed by Michelle Pffeifer in the 1988 movie), a conservative and deeply religious mestiza who is seduced by a Spanish aristocrat to commit adultery, a decision which she will later regret. #tanghalangpilipino #juegodepeligro #dangerousliasons
