“McDonagh’s play is whip-smart, with complex layers that explore the reliability of a story and a storyteller.”

“For over an hour, Daniel Darwin spun—and it was breathtaking.”

“Arbol de Fuego is a theatrical tour de force. Treading down the line of drama and comedy, the show is amusing and entertaining, yet deeply affecting.”

“The true star of the show, however, is the music. Reminiscent of Off-Broadway rock musicals, it’s not difficult to walk out of the theater with one or two songs stuck in your head.”

“Jean Genet is a very interesting man, and Dulaang UP’s on stage presentation of the man and his work is not a flawless attempt, but it was a good one.”

“The entire thing is a question of reality—a play with 6 possible interpretations, according to director Banaue Miclat.”

“What truly shines in this production is the smart yet delicate script, ably delivered by its seasoned cast.”
