Ang Buhay ni Galileo

“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.”

It’s a strong cast of 23 performers (with a revolving door of celebrity guests at every performance), led by an alluring Caisa Borromeo as Shiela and an impressively erratic George Schulze as Berger.

“Resorts World Manila’s ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ is zany, weird, and ridiculously over the top. It raises more questions than it answers, yet against all these odds, or perhaps because of them – it still works marvelously.”
