theater me

mind blown. articles about 2018’s theater scene have come out in recent weeks talking and celebrating the year’s best. the philippines may not have something like the tony’s but im honored to be mentioned and even in one article, singled out as the best stage design for PETA’s ‘night, mother.

screencaps and links to articles below.

carlo and i would normally design only for film and tv commercials but occasionally dabble in theater when opportunities arise. i was able to do 2 virgin labfest productions with melvin lee until early last year when PETA closed its season with ‘night, mother, directed by lee, and starring sherry lara and eugene domingo. right after ‘night mother, we worked with vincent de jesus again (who did ‘night, mother’s music) with rem zamora directing in the restaging of CHANGING PARTNERS. our other theater run was in 2017 with ateneo blue repertory for again, vincent de jesus’s KUNG PAANO KA NAGING LEADING LADY ZE MUSICAL under the direction of issa manalo-lopez.

it seems vincent de jesus is my go-to fairy godmother haha

PS. i might as well mention that i did have an industry citation midyear with philstage’s GAWAD BUHAY. i dont know how it works but i understand there will be a final lineup maybe about now on who actually gets nominated and who will win. fingers crossed?
