Anton Juan--on The Threepenny Opera, theater for everyone and those awards

A three-part video interview (each part about 8-9 minutes each). Mr. Juan needs no introduction or explication, so I'l let him do the talking.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

PLUS: “Long, long time ago, I might’ve been the enfant terrible as people would say (laughs), but that’s the wrong impression. At one point--when the time turned for me--I realized that explaining with a whisper is much better than reacting with a scream.”

-- From “Anton Juan's beggars' banquet”, by Igan D'Bayan, in the Philippine Star

Aug. 15 show, at call time, the lead actor was still at St. Luke's Hospital, waiting to be cleared. Three actors provided a front act, Kalila Aguilos sang La Vie En Rose, Bituin Escalanta sang Stardust and Ricci Chan sang a shocking My F*cking Valentine.

The show was a blast, the actors were great. It was worth the wait.
