Must see movie and theater productions this weekend

We've got a lot to watch this weekend. I've listed again new movie and theater productions that you shouldn't miss and to be able to support the actors and artists behind the camera and curtains during this pandemic caused by Covid 19.

Sunday Beauty Queen
2016's Best Picture in the Metro Manila Film Festival will be streaming on Youtube starting May 15. This depicts the life of Filipina domestic helpers in Hong Kong and how they have fun every weekend through a beauty pageant during their day-off. Laugh and cry to this wonderful masterpiece from Baby Ruth Villarama.

Andrew Lloyd Webber invites everyone to the Jellicle Ball from May 15-16 on Youtube. Watch the cats perform their numbers to be chosen to the Heaviside Layer. This is not the Rebel Wilson, Taylor Swift et al version in 2019.

Mula Sa Buwan
Find yourself in 1940s Manila, among young ROTC cadets and blushing colegialas. In a time of innocence and beauty on the cusp of change. Music, harana, kundiman, wit, passion, and hope abound – and then war strikes. Love and ideals are all tested, the young now forced to suddenly "grow up".

The musical moves to a time after the war, to a field of ruble, of forgotten memories, of heroes lost in a country struggling to survive. At the center of it all, the timeless love story between Cyrano, Roxane, and Christian.

Streaming this May 16.

Continue to support the artists all over the world and be mindful of unofficial streaming links that scammers use for their own personal gains. If you can donate, please do.
