Repertory Philippines presents JEKYLL & HYDE

i was reading the sypnosis of Repertory Philippines' upcoming musical Jekyll & Hyde and i got to admit i need to see this on stage! and i'm so excited to see it first before it opens on March 16!
i was moving away from the words that i read. scenes are very graphic and violent depicting the 2 personalities that our lead character gives. from the very nice and good Dr. Jekyll, who helps the people, transforms to the evil Mr. Hyde who kills the people is something to anticipate. the love that he expresses to his fiance Emma to the lust as what Hyde reveals to Lucy. a lot of things may happen that will not just tell a story but hit our inner selves. to determine and make judgments of ourselves.

in this production, Michael Stuart Williams (Peter Pan) and Jett Pangan (Atlantis' Next to Normal) alternates as Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Emma is played by Cris Villongco (Leading Ladies) and another newcomer to the Repertory Philippines, Kalila Aguilos plays Lucy.

a repertoire of amazing songs in the exchange of feelings of our characters will capture us all listening and looking at ourselves. i really liked the rendition of "Take Me as I Am" performed by Cris Villongco (Emma) and Michael Williams (Jekyll).
and for those who are not theater-goers, "This is the Moment" was part of this production and will be performed by The Dawn member, Jett Pangan, who plays Jekyll / Hyde and a new member of Repertory Philippines as well. he'd really be very thankful for RP for giving him such a beautiful project.
Jekyll & Hyde is one of the big productions of Repertory Philippines this 2012. alongside Next Fall, Leading Ladies, Camp Rock, and Wizard of Oz that would cater to all range of audiences. Jekyll & Hyde opens on March 16, 2012 at Onstage, Greenbelt 1, the official residence of Repetory Philippines. directed by Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo. featuring veteran Rep actor Junix Inocian as Gabriel John Utterson.
