The Diana Vreeland set that got its own applause? That’s by Joey Mendoza

By
“FULL Gallop” set rendering. “It needs to have a sense of humor, I think,” says Mendoza. “The set, like Vreeland, while at first might seem intimidating, is actually warm and funny.”

It isn’t every day that a set design receives applause from an audience.

By
ILLUSTRATION BY VOS

Lately we’ve been finding ourselves, instead of in bed reading, out for some nocturnal enjoyment. One such spell started with an invitation from Ingrid Sala Santamaria for a concert of hers with the Manila Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Arturo Molina.

From subject to staging to star, ‘Full Gallop’ is entrancing

By
CHERIE Gil as Diana Vreeland was a challenging role to play, with endless lines and no other actor to share the stage with. ERICKSON DELA CRUZ II

The real Diana Vreeland loved being under the spotlight and to hold court. In her old age, she talked slow, so you really had no choice but to hang on her every word. In her column for Harper’s Bazaar, where she served as fashion editor, she loved giving outrageous suggestions like, “Why don’t you … wash your blond child’s hair in dead champagne?”

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.

Cherie Gil: I want to portray women of strength

By
CHERIE Gil says the play is a homage to the people who helped shape her image and style. FRAN KATIGBAK

Don’t be you’re nothing but a second rate trying hard copycat” goes the message on a T-shirt, posted on Twitter as Cherie Gil’s profile photo.   The veteran actress’ infamous line from the 1985 movie “Bituing Walang Ningning” seems like a (modified) statement of sorts for her pedigree—a descendant of the Eigenmann acting clan—and a [...]

Social media, for good or ill

By
t0105 thumbsup down_feat1_1

Supertyphoon “Yolanda” showed the best and the worst of social media. In the immediate aftermath, at least, there was none of the irreverent humor that Filipinos are known for, we who make fun of anything and anyone, even and especially our own misfortune. The enormity of the tragedy was such that not even the worst kibitzers on social media had the guts to post any wisecrack.

Bart Guingona, Irma Adlawan, Nonie Buencamino–they all began in campus theater

By
TANGHALANG Ateneo’s “Sintang Dalisay,” 2011, directed by
Ricardo Abad

Some students may regard it as a hobby until they graduate, while others see it as a bona fide drama course for a long-term career. Regardless of its practitioners’ motivations, the recent developments in university-based theater organizations have transformed campus theater into a serious training ground for students’ professional, intellectual and moral growth once they leave the academe.
