together with dear, my mum and my two nieces, ia & tffee, we watched the philippine staging of wanders at the pagcor grand theater airport casino filipino. although we arrived 10 minutes before the 8pm call time, the show didn’t start until a bit past 8:30PM. medyo konti pa lang ang tao to think it was a saturday.
but as soon as it started, it was such a spectacle! I haven’t been this excited watching a live musical/fantasy show since disney on ice. I felt like a kid again. I couldn’t stop clapping. I think at the end of the show, I could hardly feel my palms. this for me is the closest to a vegas show I can sink my teeth into. I kept bugging my 5year old niece, tffee to ask if she’s enjoying the show, she would just give me the double thumbs up. and I zap a double thumbs up right back at her – para akong bata talaga 😀
my favorite performance of the night will be the aerial number, while frenchie dy (remember her? she’s one of the local talents in the lot) was singing la vie en rose. ay, galeng! I was gasping in awe. I was afraid for the performers because I keep playing in my head that they will let go of the satin harness while doing their thing. you know that feeling when you start imagining things like ally macbeal? happens to me all the time.
an hour or so into the show, the theater was SRO!
catch the show if you can, and bring the kids! it’s no cirque du soleil, but it’s awesome just the same. plus cute chinese guys and the maneouvres are also performing *wink*. and since I enjoyed the show immensely, I even shook the conductor’s hand when I met him at the lobby. odevah, feeling close! poor guy, nagulat ata. but you know the best part of it all? we’re almost upfront and our tickets were free!
so thanks, eric! my dearest-test-est friend! 😀
