Sunday afternoon lounge:
I purposely watched the film, if only to downplay my desire to watch the actual thing. Ever since my cousins introduced me to the wonderful world of “musical” (Wicked in Melbourne, circa 2008), my life has never been the same. Theatre has always been a benchmark of one’s acting career, IMHO. It all is surreal— how the actors and actresses perform live, and in the process, build a more personal connection with its audience.
Soon as I’ve heard they are playing in CCP Manila, I always thought of going (they made an announcement early this year). I still do. But months have passed, and here I am still without a ticket. Talk about willpower, huh?
I really want to watch. Will I ever get to?
Phantom of the Opera will be staged at the CCP Main Theatre from August 25 to September 30. Tickets are available via Ticketworld.
