After the gut-wrenching melodrama that was “August: Osage County,” with its bravura, back-to-back (or front-to-front) performances by Baby Barredo and Pinky Amador, it’s business as usual for Repertory Philippines. Meaning, up next is a wacky comedy.

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.

“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.

By
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.
