NOEL FERRER: Sold out!
Standing ovation ang opening night ng Waitress nitong nakaraang Biyernes, Nobyembre 9, sa Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Buendia Ave., Makati City.
Kinailangang panoorin ko muli ang 4:00 PM matinee nitong Nobyembre 10, Sabado, para makita ang epekto nito sa mga manonood.
In fairness, kahit sa matinee, ganun pa rin ang reaksyon—powerful story, songs and performances with music and lyrics by six-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles.
Waitress features a stunning list of acclaimed songs—"She Used To Be Mine" & "Dear Baby" by Joanna Ampil, "I Didn’t Plan It" by Bituin Escalante, "Never Ever Get Rid Of Me" by Nino Alejandro, Maronne Cruz and The Company.
Wow moments ang mga ito.
Mahusay ang staging ni Direk Bobby Garcia at ng kanyang Atlantis Theatrical.
More than the story of making pies, the material is strong on empowerment, friendship, family, motherhood and discovering one’s self-worth.
Nakaka-proud mapanood ang Waitress dahil maliban sa world-class talents natin, this musical makes us feel good about ourselves and the liberating and loving company that we keep.
It’s so now and it’s so progressive! You can catch it at the RCBC Theater until December 2!!!
JERRY OLEA: #Glorious ang kissing at love scenes dito ni Joanna at ng twenty-something leading man niyang si Bibo Reyes.
Sa galing nilang umarte, hindi ka maaasiwa kahit may kanya-kanya silang partner.
