Dulaang UP restages 'The Silent Soprano'

In celebration of the centennial of the University of the Philippines, Dulaang UP re-stages Vince De Jesus, Arnel De Pano and Ricardo “Batch” Saludo’s musical, “The Silent Soprano,” on September 5 and 6, 2008, 7 p.m., at the AFP Theater, Camp Aguinaldo, QC.

“The Silent Soprano,” under the direction of Alexander Cortez, features Natasha Cabrera, Joel Molina, Jean Judith Javier, Onyl Torres, Via Antonio, JC Santos, Arkel Mendoza, Adrian Reyes, Sharon Ramos Bullecer, Mios Buenafe, Carla Yoingco, Nikki Ventosa, Lucky de Mesa, Hazel Maranan, Cinderella Mayo, Carlo Cannu, William Manzano, Jules Dela Paz and the Dulaang UP Ensemble, with Dexter Santos as choreographer.

The musical centers on a domestic helper, Margie, whose golden voice captivates Hong Kong songwriter Ricky. But big-time record producer George thumbs down the idea of a Filipino maid singing Canto-pop, until he comes up with a daring scheme to sell her to the fans. The audacious plan catapults Margie to stardom, but she must follow George's draconian rules to keep her place at the top of the charts.

Will she stay in her cage in exchange for fame and fortune, or will she break free and be herself at the cost of losing it all? The musical sweeps across the themes of identity, music, race, love and freedom in a world driven by money, media and manipulation. The tunes, trials and tribulations of “The Silent Soprano” mark a journey between disparate cultures, lands and souls to find one common core of humanity.

I was entertained by this play. dahil it is so ridiculous. writing is bad, bad directing, bad acting, energetic singing. pero enjoy na enjoy sila. so in the end, natuwa na din ako. pero , ang sama talaga.
