A musical usually makes you feel good but with PETA’s Changing Partners the musical, it is the other way around. The musical shows why relationships fail in general and it has two characters. But what makes it unique was it was played by a cast of four and it all happened in one straight act and no intermission. How is it possible, you might ask? Watch it again when it reruns.
|With Ms. Agot Isidro|
The composer Vince de Jesus provided the songs and also accompanied during the show run. Even though there is always a trademark of Vince’s music, he is the only one who could create songs for this kind of musical.
The musical is so heartbreaking that I also joked that PETA should provide tissues after the show for those who can relate. Even I am not exempted because I feel the pain of the characters. The set is simple with just blocks that formed walls and dividers in a condominium it only requires a smaller stage because they don’t need to change set.
The cast of Changing Partner are Agot Isidro, Jojit Lorenzo, Anna Luna and Sandino Martin. Directed by Rem Zamora. For more musical productions, follow this blog and like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
