My mouth is still agape until now.
I'm on fire to spread about #GODSPELLMNL My greatest regret is that I didn't not have time to watch this sooner. My parents and I watched their penultimate show for 2017.
They still have one more show this afternoon at three. (SUNDAY, 21 MAY 2017 AT 3 O'CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON) Please catch them. You will enjoy the show and you would also be touched, I promise. ALL the performances are effortless.

Last year I did not have the chance to watch this masterful retelling of a famous musical I loved since the 1970s. I was in the States back then and I kept on singing Day by Day like it was composed for me. I was a little girl back then and some of my memories are pretty hazy, but I remember Day by Day well.
I am very much in awe of Ms. Lauchengco-Yulo's persona. I was so much tickled pink to shake her hand that I forgot to ask for her autograph(Dad was in hurry---he enjoyed the show 100%, but his spirit was willing, but his flesh...his body was weak...he has been a senior citizen for a long time now). I really wouldn't know her innermost thoughts and all that, thank God, but the way she carries herself and her demeanour make me think that she is a wonderful person. I don't expect artists to remember people they met before, because they meet a lot of people. When I was younger I used to get hurt, but when it was my turn to forget, and I'm not even a famous person, I understood.
Her youthfulness is such a joy to watch and her wide vocal range is so pleasing to listen to. #BYMYSIDE
Dad's favourite performer, and I must say that even if we love everything and everyone on stage, we have favourites, is Abi Sulit. It was not my first "encounter" with Ms. Sulit, but it was dad's. He was simply amazed by her voice and acting. She is also very graceful. #BLESSTHELORD
My favourites are: Ms. Yulo, of course, Gab Pangilinan, Myke Salomon and Jef Flores. Still, I should reiterate that all performances are awe-inspiring.
Mom loves Lorenz Martinez best, probably because he loves his mother, Ms. Enchang Kaimo(whom I especially adored in FIRST NAME), and acknowledged her. I think mom started admiring Mr. Martinez since she watched him in Heneral Luna. I loved him and his wife, Ms. Shiela Valderrama, in Rak of Aegis, among others. #WEBESEECHTHEE
Now what about Jef Flores? We think he played/plays Jesus like a true modern day Messiah. He is very charismatic and such a natural. (...and wow, he plays the violin too!)
#SAVETHEPEOPLE, #BEAUTIFULCITY, #ALLFORTHEBEST, #ALASFORYOU
Another natural that made my jaw drop was Ms. Maronne Cruz. She's funny, graceful and her voice resonates to the highest heavens. She also plays the ukulele quite well. #LEARNYOURLESSONSWELL

Rhenwyn Gabalonzo(#ONTHEWILLOWS) and Poppert Bernadas(#LIGHTOFTHEWORLD), two unique names, at least for my eyes and ears. It's not my first time to "meet" Poppert, and somebody else in Scotland or Ireland or anywhere in the world might be named Rhenwyn, but... Anyways, these two are mighty talented and versatile.

Caisa Borromeo's rendition of TURN BACK, O MAN is one of the best ever. I'm almost speechless. ;-)
It's refreshing to note that the ushers and greeters are all involved in Theatre, one way or another. They were very welcoming. True, their lines were rehearsed, but they made it like it was personalised.
No flash photography.
No taking of videos.
No eating inside the auditorium
