It has been a long time since I last saw a musical so I grabbed the opportunity when I was invited by my friend Toots. Believe it or not, it was also my first time to watch at the Meralco Theater so I was truly excited. It was just a few days before Ninoy Aquino day so this musical was dedicated to his 30th death anniversary.
Veteran actors Bodjie Santos and Malou de Guzman delivered powerful performances in the roles given to them. They were very convincing in everything they did and they made the audience stay glued to their performance.
The Philippine Educational Theater Association delighted the crowd with their singing. It was indeed a musical we won't soon forget as Pamana succeeded in combining video footage of past events and live performances.
The best part of the musical was when Kakki and Jett were in each other's throats since Kakki's character did not want to come with Jett's character to Switzerland. She wanted to stay in the country despite everything that has happened so far. This truly demonstrates you should not give up on your country if you truly love it.
I will never forget the hilarious Skype conversations with Kakki and Jett as Jett tries to convince Kakki that he is indeed coming back. When he does come back though, his mother played by Malou de Guzman is suffering a disease.
