Now, all eyes are on Kris and her reaction to the news.

But this is what we get from her:

“The Italian GF stays in the same condo in Makati as my close cousins-in-law. U see, I can keep quiet. More than six months ago pa naming alam ‘yan. But dedma and care bears. Hehehe!”

She was the first to know of the development of her ex and she has really matured with dealing with his relationship.

Are you surprised she kept it to herself this long?

Repertory Philippines’ “No Way To Treat a Lady” runs at Onstage 2 , Greenbelt this March 2013!

Repertory Philippines proudly announces its second offering for the year 2013 with “ No Way To Treat A Lady ” — a musical comedy thriller with book, music and lyrics written by award-winning author/composer Douglas J. Cohen.

1

Directed by Audie Gemora, “ No Way to Treat a Lady ” is a dark, energetic and funny musical about good boys, bad boys, and the women who shape their lives focusing on themes like betrayal, death, friendship, Jewish/Yiddish issues, love, parenting / family. The musical was based on the 1964 novel of the same name by William Goldman which was made into a motion picture in 1968.

The dynamic cast of five ( portraying seventeen characters ! ) features Audie Gemora as Christopher ‘Kit’ Gill; Joel Trinidad as Morris Brummel; Carla Guevara-Laforteza as Sarah Stone; Sheila Francisco as Flora Brummel;  Pinky Marquez as Alexandra Gill; and Jamie Wilson as Christopher Gill (Stand In).

Set in summer 1970’s New York City,  “ No Way to Treat a Lady ” tells the story of Christopher “Kit” Gill (Audie Gemora), an unsuccessful actor turned serial killer —-  a maniac with mommy issues who is on a rampage, and the NYPD detective on his trail, Morris “Moe” Brummell (Joel Trinidad).  Brummell is a Jewish bachelor, who still lives with his overbearing mother, in the shadow of his successful brother, the doctor. The detective leads a rather unexceptional existence, and yearns for a way to make a name for himself.  His goal is shared by an unlikely person, a serial killer seeking notoriety and attention from the police, the press and the city at large. The killer phones Moe one day and the two begin a taunting game of cat and mouse that results in a strange dependence on one another. Moe’s plan to track and eventually trap the killer is temporarily waylaid when he meets a beautiful, rich society girl who lives in the apartment building of the first victim. Woven into the main story of cop vs. killer are two subplots —- what made Kit a killer and Moe’s relationship with his mother and his new girlfriend.

The schedule of shows are: March 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 & 23, 2013 – 8:00 PM; March 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 & 24, 2013 – 3:30 PM. All performances are at Onstage, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City.

Nikki Gil returns to the stage as Sonia Walsk in “They’re Playing Our Song”!

The musical marks the return of singer-actress Nikki Gil to the stage via They’re Playing Our Song!

Nikki Gil, who regularly appears on the noontime variety show “ASAP 2012,” is one of the longest running VJs for MYX music channel. She is also a trusted brand ambassador and spokesperson for various advocacies, as well as a TV actress and a singer with several albums under her belt. She also played the role of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde the Musical, and Charity Hope Valentine in 9 Works Theatrical’s critically acclaimed dance musical, Sweet Charity.

Nikki Gil

“I’m actually very excited to start rehearsing for the show but at the same time, very nervous,” intimates Nikki about having to play the role of Sonya. While this is her fourth theatrical production (“Legally Blonde,” “Seussical the Musical”), she says that performing onstage is always nerve-racking and it never gets any easier. Not to mention, the role of Sonia was once played by her idol, Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga.

“I love Lea and anything that has to do with her,” Gil quips fondly, adding, “She really brought the role of Sonya to life in the previous staging. I’ll just have to bring something different to the table… my own version.”

Thankfully, Gil finds herself in good company and is reunited with 9 Works Theatrical’s Artistic Director Robbie Guevara (“RENT,” “The Wedding Singer”) as her Director for the show, as well as veteran actor Lorenz Martinez who plays Vernon, her romantic lead in the show.

Lorenz Martinez is one of the top theater actors in the country. His inherent gift of quick comic timing and tenor singing voice has enthralled audiences both locally and abroad and makes him the perfect candidate to play the role of Vernon. Currently appearing in Resorts World Manila’s “The King and I” as Lun Tha, he has also appeared in shows like Forbidden Broadway, 9 Works Theatrical’s The Wedding Singer, Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Asian Tour), The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and the Netherlands production of “Miss Saigon” as the Engineer, among others.

“It’s weird but also very exciting that I’ll be sharing romantic scenes with Lorenz, who was my assistant director for Sweet Charity,” she says. “But I know that he’s also one of the most versatile characters in Philippine theater today. I will surely learn a lot from him.”

As to being directed again by Guevara, she lauds him for being such a cool director and allowing her to discover and grow alongside the character of Sonya. “I love that Robbie allows me to explore,” she says. “I’m looking forward to working with him again.”

Guevara is one of the most well-respected directors and actors in Philippine theater today. He has performed in numerous productions both here and abroad, most notably in the Manila production of “Miss Saigon” where he understudied the role of Engineer. It was a role that he would eventually play in the Asian and UK tours of the show.  He is also the visionary behind 9 Works Theatrical’s critically acclaimed productions of “Songs For a New World,” “RENT,” “The Wedding Singer,” and “Sweet Charity” where he first encountered Gil.

For “They’re Playing Our Song”, Gil and Martinez will be joined by some of the finest actors in the country today. Among which are James Stacey, Reb Atadero and Noel Rayos who will play a bevy of roles in the show as the male ensemble, as well as Peachy Atilano, Anna Santamaria, and Jill Pena in the female ensemble.

“They’re Playing Our Song” will run at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati from February 8 to March 3, and is co-presented by The Rockwell Club and The Peninsula Manila, with special participation of SM Accessories, Lynelle’s, Mary Grace, BPI Credit Cards, and media partners, MYX, Business World and HerWord.Com.

Tanghalang Pilipino’s Bicolano epic “Ibalong” opens February 8!

Tanghalang Pilipino caps its 26th season with a dance-theatre musical interpretation of the Bicolano epic, “Ibalong,” adapted for the stage by prolific playwright Rody Vera and directed by Tuxqs Rutaquio with Carol Bello’s musical direction, and Alden Lugnasin’s choreography.

“IBalong” opens with a gala premiere on February 8 – 8 p.m. at the Tanghalang Aurelio V. Tolentino, Cultural Center of the Philippines. The musical will run until March 3, 2013.

ibalong

Entitled after Legazpi City’s week-long festivity, “Ibalong,” the musical tells the story of Handyong and his warriors who come to Bicol – formerly known as Ibalon – and wage war against beasts and monsters pillaging the land’s natural wealth. Handyong mightily battles creatures bearing a solitary eye and three throats, several winged sharks, and wild carabaos.

In introducing civilization to the barbaric land, Handyong matches wit and might with the scheming snake, Oryol.  A master of deceit, Oryol disguises herself into a sweet, young lady in order to seduce Handyong. But not to be outwitted, Handyong eventually makes Oryol fall in love with him.

Their love story – between a warrior and a monster – defines the greatness of Bicol as it explores an individual’s capacity for good and evil, and a land’s history marked by progress and destruction.

The cast of “Ibalong” include Jenine Desiderio – Oryol; May Bayot – Gugurang; Myke Salomon – Handyong; Red Nuestro – Opon; Delphine Buencamino – Koro / Understudy Oryol; Trixie Esteban – Young Oryol / Koro; Cheeno Macaraig – Young Handyong / Makusog / Kawal/ibingan; Tara Cabaero – Buring/Anino; Hazel Maranan – Onglo/Anino; Opaline Santos – Sarimao/Anino; Kristofer Kliatchko -Angongolood/Kawal; Cyril Balderama – Sarimao/Kawal; and Philip Palmos – Kikik. The ensemble is composed of TP’s Actor’s Company featuring Jonathan Tadioan – Aswang / Koro; Marco Viaña –    Rabot/Koro; Remus Villanueva – Handyong / Kawal/Angongolood; Nicolo Magno –    Baltog / Koro; Ralph Mateo -Bantong / Kalabaw/ Tambaluslos/Kawal; Regina De Vera – Bonggo/Anino; Jovanni Cadag -Sarimao ; and Doray Dayao – Popo/Anino.

Nanding Josef, Artistic Director of Tanghalang Pilipino cited that this production which is being done in cooperation with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and the City of Legazpi of Bicol, is a special offering to the Bicolanos and the rest of the Filipino people who are committed to protecting our natural resources and cultural heritage from the onslaught of irresponsible commercialism, modernization, frenetic world trade and homogenizing globalization —- all hiding under the name of human progress and development, but in reality, are all motivated by self-centered motives and selfish interests of the greedy, materialistic, powerful evil creatures of this earth which was originally created by the Supreme Being only for everything that is good, true and beautiful.

The artistic team of “Ibalong” is led by Nanding Josef  ( Artistic Director ), Rody Vera ( Playwright ); Tuxqs Rutaquio ( Director/Set Designer ); Carol Bello (Composer/Musical Director ); Rizalino Reyes & Inkantada, All-Women Group (Arranger );  Leeroy New ( Costume & Puppet Designer ); Alden Lugnasin (Choreographer ); Katsch Catoy ( Lights Designer and Technical Director ) and   TJ Ramos ( Sound Designer ).

Feng Shui 2013 Prediction: “Best Time To Start Over”!

MANILA, Philippines – If you are planning to change careers, put up a business or end a relationship, do it before the start of the Year of the Water Snake to have the most luck, according to a feng shui expert.

Citing her analysis of feng shui charts, Marites Allen said the Year of the Water Snake, which begins on February 2013, is the best time to start a new life.

“[The Year of the Water Snake] is something like a reset button,” Allen, who is now based in the United Kingdom, said in a press briefing during her visit to Manila.

“If you want to start with a new career, this is the year,” she added. “If you ask me, I’m back to zero all over again. I started Frigga (her feng shui-inspired clothing line). It’s a reset button for everybody.”

Allen said good things are expected to come in the Year of the Water Snake, as compared with the “not-so-lucky” Year of the Water Dragon since the coming year has “a complete set of elements.”

“Things will be very good because it has the presence of two wood elements, two water, two earth, a metal and a fire. So this is a complete set of elements,” she explained to members of the media as she points to a feng shui illustration. “We are hoping to go through a better time after so many years of [hardship].”

She also mentioned that following things that people should watch out for during the Year of the Water Snake:

  • Water disasters and fighting can have some impact in the general scene
  • Younger generation will be governing this year
  • Clever people will reign supreme over powerful people
  • Friendly alliances can take place, not only within the Philippines but also in other countries
  • Technology will bring more people together

‘Lucky’ animal signs

Referring to the “flying star” chart, a discipline in feng shui that analyzes positive and negative auras, Allen also announced the “lucky” animal signs for the Year of the Water Snake.

She said those who were born in the Year of the Tiger and the Year of the Ox will gain wealth-related luck during the Year of the Water Snake. Dragons and Snakes, on the other hand, are seen to be lucky in issues related to love, romance and education next year.
Other “lucky” animal signs include the Horse, which is seen to have more “prosperity”; the Rat, predicted to get the energies of the “white star,” which is associated with overall success; and the Dog and Boar, said to have better “heaven luck” or karma.“Pwede nang magpakasal,” Allen said of those born in the Years of the Dragon and Snake.

On the other hand, Allen said the Rabbit, Rooster, Sheep and Monkey will not be as fortunate during the Year of the Water Snake. She said those born in the Year of the Sheep and the Year of the Monkey are more likely to suffer from illness; the Rooster may tend to get more violent; and the Rabbit may get into more arguments next year.

Meanwhile, Allen stressed that she cannot instantly give individual predictions without enough data, reacting to questions from the media and guests about their own fortunes.

“Hindi po siya basta-basta. It comes with analysis so we use the four pillars chart of the year, ibig sabihin ‘yung date of birth of the person, the flying stars, meaning ano ‘yung mga maswerte at ‘di maswerteng lokasyon, and even our own astrological signs,” she explained.

“Hindi po kami manghuhula. Kunyari, sino po ang mananalo. You have to give us time,” she added. “We cannot simply say them straight. We have to do the analysis kaya sana in the future when you come and see us, you give us time to analyze. Hindi pwedeng bigla-bigla, kasi those who do that, hula hula lang ‘yan.”

Three types of luck

Allen warned, however, that focus too much on feng shui as there are two other things that affect a person’s luck.

She said feng shui falls under the “earth luck” category as it helps attract positive energy and deal with negative energy.

The other two are “heaven luck” and “human luck.”

“I always explain that there are three types of luck. The first one-third is the heaven luck… This is something that is God-given and cannot be changed.

“The second one-third is what you do to yourself (human luck), a result of your actions and decisions. If I am lazy, nobody is going to put food on the table.

“The final one-third is what we call the earth luck. This is what feng shui is all about.”

While a lot of Filipinos do not believe in feng shui, many of them prefer to be on the safe side by adhering to its principles, buying trinkets and other “lucky” items for themselves and their homes.

Others, meanwhile, opt to respect the ancient Chinese system the same way that believers do not criticize their Catholic faith.

Marites Allen will hold a feng shui convention on January 19, 2013 at the Infinity Ballroom of Best Western Premiere F1 Hotel at Fort Bonifacio Global City. After the Manila event, she will hold similar talks on February 16 in Monaco, March 23 in London, March 31 in Tokyo, April 27 in Alaska, May in Iceland, July in Norway, August in Belgium, Spain and Malta, and September in Denmark and Sweden.
