‘Bakwit Boys’ hopes to debunk musicals as box-office poison

Filmmaker Jason Paul Laxamana, who said he was well aware of the poor box-office performance of previously shown locally produced musical films, claimed that his "Bakwit Boys" is "of a different kind." "I really don't know why musical films are doing poorly when we're supposed to be a music-loving people," Laxamana told the Inquirer. "Sadly, there's a stigma when it comes to this genre, maybe because the audience finds it corny that people suddenly break into song and dance." Laxamana said that what sets "Bakwit Boys" apart from films of the same genre that were shown recently is that "the characters don't just sing out of the blue, or when their emotion is high. The songs---th...Keep on reading: ‘Bakwit Boys’ hopes to debunk musicals as box-office poison.....»»

Robot wars: China shows off automated doctors, teachers and combat stars

Robots that can diagnose diseases, play badminton and wow audiences with their musical skills are among the machines China hopes could revolutionise its economy, with visitors to a Beijing exhibition offered a glimpse of an automated future. The popular stars of this year's World Robot Conference, which ends Sunday, were undoubtedly the small, amateur-made "battle bots" which smashed, hammered and sawed their way through their opponents to a cacophony of cheers and shouts from a rapt audience. "With this robot, I can fully express myself. I love the sparks," said Huang Hongsong, one of around a dozen Chinese youths whose creations went head-to-head. But while the battle bots...Keep on reading: Robot wars: China shows off automated doctors, teachers and combat stars.....»»

No singing for Josh Groban in 1st lead role on TV

  LOS ANGELES---After conquering Broadway, Josh Groban lands his first lead role in a TV series via Netflix's "The Good Cop." And it's a nonsinging part. Josh costars with veteran TV and stage actor Tony Danza in the dramedy based on an Israeli show of the same name. They play father and son, Tony Sr. and Tony Jr. (TJ), who live together but couldn't be more different. Dad is a disgraced former cop who did not follow the rules while TJ is a straitlaced detective who always follows the rules. It's quite a shift for the popular pop opera star who earned a 2017 Tony Award best actor in a musical nomination for his Broadway debut in "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Co...Keep on reading: No singing for Josh Groban in 1st lead role on TV.....»»

A Fil-Am actor’s life: Cesar Cipriano

  (Conclusion) LOS ANGELES---"It has been a mixture of fulfillment, excitement and wonder, sprinkled with moments of frustration and thumb twiddling," Cesar Cipriano summed up his journey so far as a Fil-Am actor in Hollywood. Our first exposure---pun unintended---to Cesar was in the East West Players' production of "La Cage aux Folles" in 2016. He played several roles, but it was as a dancer that he almost stole the show, along with Reuben Uy. As go-go studs, Cesar and Reuben wore the briefest shorts, trunks or underwear throughout the musical. And even when playgoers were just arriving at David Henry Hwang Theater in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo, the two dudes greeted...Keep on reading: A Fil-Am actor’s life: Cesar Cipriano.....»»

‘Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!’ is a sweet, sly bolt of joy

One of the toughest challenges in mounting an original musical production based on a repertoire of pop classics is preventing the show from becoming a concert, where the plot and characterization play second fiddle to the renditions of the hit songs. 9 Works Theatrical and Globe Live's "Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!"---ongoing till Aug. 26, at Maybank Performing Arts Theater, Bonifacio Global City (BGC)---successfully surmounts this hurdle. It embraces its musical roots by thoroughly reimagining the wide discography of the Apo Hiking Society, even as it invites its audience to relive a more innocent age---with a few occasional winks at the present. Spoilers aside, it's worth noting how...Keep on reading: ‘Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!’ is a sweet, sly bolt of joy.....»»
