I Remember a Boy

“It is a two-hour show, yet if one were a lover of OPM from the 1970s-1990s, one could only pray that it would go on and on in order to savor the musicality of these millennial actors and actresses.”   

“Just like how the source material had a relatively more contemporary feel, director Jonathan Tadioan opted to incorporate pop culture references, solidifying the production’s relatability with its audience.”

Dulaang UP’s “Ang Dalagita’y ‘sang Bagay na Di-buo” is an important and impressive production aimed at educating all Filipinos on the long-term effects of sexual abuse.

Don Quixote

“Ballet Philippines had talented dancers at the forefront and committed artists behind the scenes. It is a product of passion and inspiration.”
