The Nether

“The story follows a young detective named Morris, who is tasked with investigating a mysterious place called The Hideaway and its unforthcoming owner, Mr. Sims. What follows is a foray into moral ambiguity, complex characters, and the nature of guilt.”

Swan Lake

“Re-staging Swan Lake surely was a result of blood, sweat and tears. Needless to say, this is an ambitious project that survived against all odds.”

“As the song goes, Everything was beautiful at the ballet. Everyone was beautiful at the ballet.”

Prelude to Macbeth

“If you are not familiar with the stage play Macbeth, fret not. Even with no prior knowledge of one of Shakespeare’s classic plays, quite surprisingly, Artist Playground’s staging of James Palmer’s ‘Prelude to Macbeth’ does not feel intimidating and archaic.”

Agnes of God

“An excellent showcase of caliber from performers to production, Repertory Philippines proves with ‘Agnes of God’ that they may be 50 years old, but they’re all the stronger for it.”

My Name is Asher Lev

“Conde is right; Asher Lev’s story pierces the heart, not just of budding artists, but every person who has a God-given talent.”

Care Divas

“Liza Magtoto has crafted a layered, complex, and informative narrative that is enriched by Vincent De Jesus’s lyrics and musical direction. It’s a piece that leaves no stones unturned.”

Si Janus Silang

“Tanghalang Ateneo, with director Charles Yee, has taken on the brave task of bringing Edgar Calabia Samar’s bestselling young adult novel, ‘Si Janus Silang at ang Tiyanak ng Tabon’, to the stage.”
