Ang mundo ng entabladong Pilipino

Ayon kay Glenn Mas, makata, guro, mandudula at kasamang hurado sa Gawad Buhay!:

Naiyak ako nung kinanta ito kanina nina Celeste Legaspi at Pinky Marquez sa awards night ng Philstage sa Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino ng CCP. Naiyak ako dahil may resonance sa buhay na pinili ko ang mga titik ng kantang ito. Naiyak ako dahil kinanta ito sa entabladong kilalang-kilala ko dahil dati rin akong nagtanghal dito. At higit sa lahat, naiyak ako dahil habang kinakanta ito ay pinalilibutan ako ng maraming mga kapatid na tulad ko ay minahal din, at patuloy na minamahal, ang teatro.



Performers: Roden Araneta, John Arcilla, Emmy Cayabyab, Melanie Dujunco, Inday Echeverria, Bituin Escalante, Waya Gallardo, Audie Gemora, Mio Infante, Clottie Lucero, Rhoel Mangulabnan, Jun Ofrasio, Adrian Reyes, Kyla Rivera. Soloists: Celeste Legaspi and Pinky Marquez.

Mr. C, Ryan Cayabyab himself, the particular object of this musical tribute, would text a friend of his afterwards about the night (SMS reposted here with his permission):

Nakakatuwa! They rehearsed on the sly. I had no inkling whatsoever! Ang galing-galing nila. Nakaka-awe ang mga talents [na andun]--Joey Reyes, Floy Quintos, Cesar Cosme, Dindo Angeles, Loy Arcenas, Bituin Escalante, Lisa Macuja, Celeste, Audie, Pinky Marquez, Bien Lumbera, Nonoy Froilan and Edna Vida, Irma Adlawan. Ang galing ni Vince De Jesus, so talented! I could go on and on. Mabuhay ang mga taga-entabladong Pilipino!... Never mind the award, kahit wala. Just to say that I am part of that family was good enough. I am so awed that the Rep people and those from TP, Gantimpala, Stages and PETA were all there with such high mutual respect for each other. Mabuhay ang entabladong Pilipino!
