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

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.

“August: Osage County” ERICKSON DELA CRUZ II

“August: Osage County,” the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play by actor-writer Tracy Letts, is set in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, a speck of a town of less than 4,000 people somewhere in the Great American Plains. The state is just north of Texas, so it’s perfectly acceptable to assume that they must speak in a sort of Southern accent there.

Tony-winning ‘August: Osage County’ is Rep’s ‘prestige’ production for 2014

SNEAK peek of children’s play “Pinocchio” AMADÍS MA. GUERRERO

It was a unique press conference in the sense that the two hosts—actors Reb Atadero and Arya Herrera—fielded all the questions to the panel of actors and directors. And the invited media persons kept prudently silent, because there was no open forum.

Freedom, escape–exciting theater

RAE RED’S ‘Kawala’

How many times can one spin variations on the theme of entrapment and escape, the need to flee what has become a destructively unsettled—or its flip side, becalmed—state? At the recent Virgin Labfest 7, which closed a couple of Sundays ago after a two-week run at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Huseng Batute, [...]

Postscript to ‘devirginization’

Rody Vera, Virgin Labfest co-founder and festival director-dramaturg for seven years

“What’s the point of writing an award-winning play if, for decades, it has remained a manuscript in a glass-encased air-conditioned library in Makati City or a chapter in a textbook being read by students required by their professors in Literature or Humanities class? What’s the difference between ‘literariness’ and ‘theatricality’ of a play?” On its [...]
