Baby Barredo on Bibot Amador: ‘It was a platonic relationship’

By
BABY Barredo (with Pinky Amador in a scene from “August: Osage County”): “We stuck to
our guns ... [Rep is] now 46 years old; never did we import an actor to play a lead role. Today,
there is so much theater—and practically all the founders are from Rep.”

The raves are still pouring in, even as Repertory Philippines’ “August: Osage County” is on its last weekend. The lion’s share of the praise goes to Baby Barredo, the company’s cofounder, artistic director and now the play’s main performer after an absence of more than a decade. Barredo remains at the top of her game at 72—an age she is not ashamed to admit.

On a recent Monday at a P75-per-beer-bottle bar in Makati City, five original one-act-plays written by actor-director-playwright-producer Joel Trinidad were the main attractions for the night. Also having a good time with the Makati yuppies and some expats was Noel Trinidad. Gray-haired and still with the perpetually smiling face, the veteran theater-film-TV actor-host-comedian was all but proud of his son.

By
AUDIE Gemora

The year’s performances to remember–so far

Jamie Wilson in Viva Atlantis Theatricals’ “The Full Monty,” directed by Chari Arespacochaga

COUNT THEM—22 productions in just the first five months of the year, from the small two-character drama (“Red”) to the all-stops-out musical extravaganza (“Ibalong,” “Katy”). Local theater is at its most prolific and exciting in years; and so, before the last days of summer ring the curtain down on the old season to usher in the new by June—and with memory the only antidote to the ephemeral nature of theater—we thought we’d look back and salute the performances that lit up the stage and occasioned cheers in the previous months.
