SHOWING THIS WEEK: Titus Andronicus

Was in the dress rehearsal of Titus Andronicus a while ago at SDA (thank you Marion for accommodating me) and I’m amazed at how they really prepare for this. From the nitty gritty of it – costume, props, production design, lights, music. Everything seems so well put together. It’s opening this Wednesday, August 3 at the SDA Auditorium, up until August 5. I really didn’t take any photos, but I’ll leave you with this poster they made.

First performed in the winter of 1594, TITUS ANDRONICUS is considered to be Shakespeare’s bloodiest and most violent work marked by a number of beheadings, a disembowelment, rape, dismemberment, murders, and cannibalism. Set during the latter days of the Roman Empire, the play tells the fictional story of Titus, a general in the Roman army, who is engaged in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths.

Featuring theater stalwarts KALILA AGUILOS, DAX ALEJANDRO, JOSHUA DEOCAREZA, NAR CABICO, G.A. FALLARME, DERRICK GOZOS, GWYN GUANZON, RUSSELL LEGASPI, MARA MARASIGAN, JIHAD MARIANO, PAOLO O’HARA, CHRISTIAN PARADO, PAUL JAKE PAULE, GAB SANTOS, and JOEL SARCHO as Titus Andronicus, the play will be shown at the SDA Theater at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design & Arts along Vito Cruz, Manila. Performance Dates are August 3, 4, and 5, 2011 with 1:00 and 7:00 PM shows. Ticket prices are at PHP 150, 300, and 350. Co-presented to you by Kickers, High Sierra, DC, Quiksilver, Roxy and Jansport.

As you know this is the thesis of the AB-Production Design and AB-Technical Theater students of De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde (some of whom are my friends.) So let us support them by watching! This is open for all individuals, Benildean or not. See you!!!

If you don’t know how to get there, here’s a map to help you. Or just get off at Vito Cruz LRT 1 station and walk across the road. When you see Jollibee, head straight that street. SDA is near a construction sight and a 7/11 store.

RSVP to this event.

Song of the Day: Before the Worst by The Script

I just don’t know why it kept ringing on my head for more than 72 hours for now. It hit me after I saw someone from the not-so-distant past. No, he didn’t see me, and I, for all reason, never thought it would feel like this. What I actually felt, I’ll keep it in me for now. I just know, I need this.

Before the heart decides it’s time to love again.
