RepPhils' JEKYLL & HYDE review

i was transported in old London times in Repertory Philippines' Jekyll & Hyde. whereas Jett Pangan plays our lead. he is joined by Junix Inocian as Utterson, Cris Villongco as Emma Carew and Kalila Aguilos as Lucy Harris.
i can that i almost got teary-eyed from what i saw. everything just fell into its place knowing that it was a new treatment. Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo made great direction. she's got a different view on things and it worked well. the stage, is an operating theater and fully functional. it was a park, Jekyll's lab and even the Red Rat without adding so much props.

as i've said before that i really loved the songs. adding with their ala-Sherlock Holmes costumes, got even more romantic. Take Me as I Am, In His Eyes are some songs that you'll probably listen over and over again. but the song, Facade, would struck everyone. the strong interpretation from all of the cast with matching good lighting suggests that every people is hiding evil inside over the good "image" that they project.

and i would applaud for anyone who will play Jekyll/Hyde. congrats to Jett Pangan and Michael Williams for taking the challenge to sing Confrontation -- which is the most difficult song i heard. taking two sides and modulating the voice line after line is not an easy thing to do. Kalila Aguilos sizzled on stage and Cris Villongco uttered the bitchy lines -- haha!

it was a sad ending but all in all, it was a very good show. and i hope everyone will be able to catch it.

catch Repertory Philippines' Jekyll & Hyde starting March 16 to April 15 2012 at Onstage, Greenbelt 1, Makati City. you can check or visit their Facebook page @RepPhils.
