Beautiful Legally Blonde the musical prod by Mediartrix at UST Sampaloc Manila Philippines

Beautiful Legally Blonde the musical prod by Mediartrix at UST Sampaloc Manila Philippines

Amazing job from this college company. Really felt like I had to write an article about it.

I already watched two productions of Mediartrix in the past: Spring Awakening and Bonnie and Clyde, both good prods, so I was expecting a good prod as well. And I found it.

They had a nice VIP ticket for me, a special seat, a nice hostess taking me in (part of the cast later I think), pretty!

My personal thanks to Rayne Jarabo, cast member who did a great job, for facilitating the tickets!

My congrats initially to both directors for achieving a giant mission of leading such a big team. Congrats John Mark Saga and Gerard King Serador. John Mark Saga even performs briefly and funny on stage!

For me to co-direct is a hard task as well. So I admire them for achieving it happily.

It’s a very big cast with very different kind of talents.

An Ensemble actress that took me by surprise and shinned during the whole show in all her small parts is Princess Venzon. The most amazing thing is that she never studied acting and this is her first production. Wow! That is really natural talent then. A born actress like Cameron Diaz. Always in character and having fun. I had to go congratulate on purpose. See her here under with blue tshirt on the left.

I must congratulate the whole cast actually for great energy and happiness.

Dance troupe was fantastic and in shape. Congrats choreographer Mykhael Mark Mangubat and whole dance troupe.

A regular customer of iChill Theater Cafe was on stage, Rayne Jarabo. Whe he started performing here he was so shy and facing the wall. And he came back everyday to sing at the open mic. So he started growing confident daily in front of our eyes. Then I suggested to face the audience and finally after to even turn on the spot light. Now he is part of a theater production of a full blown musical like Legally Blonde by Mediartrix in UST. So proud of you Rayne!

Lead actress was cute, funny, powerful singing and totally fit for the part. Congrats to Jamie Anne Jorge.

Her evil counterpart Monica Divino is divine as her surname and perfectly elegant and scary mataray as we say in the Philippines (nosy?).

Last shout out for the role of the delivery boy played by Brian Teodoro. Just with gestures and body language he made us all laugh and understand his part in a very powerful way. Galing!

Again the directors have a lot to get credit for the display of talents of the actors, because they were allowed to shine with their own light. Some director would allow this and some would not. So I congratulate the directors again for making them and letting them shine.

Whole prod congrats! #MediartixGoesLegallyBlonde
