This is the first time I got this giddy feeling watching a theatrical performance, I have to praise Repertory Theater for Young Audiences production, as I heard, it took as much as, if not more, time and effort as putting together a major musical does. Kudos to Ms. Joy Virata, the founder and moving force behind RTYA. I was completely at awe at the performance, especially to Bituin Escalante, this is the first time I saw her at stage and I love seeing this different ego infront of me compared to how I see her in TV.
The innovative Globe Telecom and 9 Works Theatrical is set to produce an iconic ultra rare Out Door theatrical performance with “American Idiots”. A very timely Rock Opera performance that can make you sing your lungs out, sink you teeth in or just being your usual massive Greenday Vibe. American Idiot is an story about three young man transitioning to adulthood, a universal struggle we all face at a time of our lives, and is sure relatable for all ages. The scene is a symbolic 9/11 America – Where they must face the challenges of love, teen pregnancy, war, drugs and loss. The Musical is set to incredibly biting and riveting music of Green Day that features a surprisingly profound understanding of pains and frustrations of today’s youth.
