TFM Editors Frida and Nikki share their pick of unforgettable performances in 2017. Which ones were your favorites?
“Lynn Ahrens and Mike Ockrent’s book is a straightforward depiction of its source material, and Robbie Guevara directs it with just as much clarity and family-friendly joy.”
“By far the most beguiling enchantment of all is a story well told with nary a word—a well-loved tale illustrated solely through classical dance and pantomime.”
“It’s Tanghalang Pilipino to the rescue of Gen Zs and Millennials who need a teach-in on financial literacy.”
Ballet Manila’s frontliners were not only competent, they were captivating.
“It’s only fitting that PETA brings back Galileo’s story, and does so in their original home. Perhaps so we can be reminded that the knowledge we enjoy is a privilege hard-won by the great thinkers who came before us.”
The cast is undeniably talented vocally, especially Lourdes May Maglinte and Joer Ivan Gallur.
“In these days of women finding their own voice and speaking truth to power, Matilda is not just a role model for kids to look up to, she’s an idol for our times.”
