Ze Muzikal ExperienZe

Nice would be an understatement if I use such word to describe the play - ZsaZsa Zaturnnah is not just nice, it's exuberantly spectacular, truly an eye-candy.

An adaptation of Carlo Vergara's famous comic hero, ZsaZsa Zaturnnah tells us the story of Ada, an expert beautician, who got hit by a mysterious stone from the heavens granting him the chance or the power to transform from being a  self-pathetic gay to a gorgeous, lovely, and powerful superhuman, ZsaZsa Zaturnnah.

Of course, you know the story - the giant frog, the rummaging zombies, and the Amazonistas. May it be through the film or the stage play.

What makes this blog entry extra special then?

It's the experience or the chance to finally see those characters come to life right before your very eyes - from Ada to ZsaZsa Zaturnnah, from the outrageous Didi to the yummy Dodong. It was a chance of a lifetime.

The actors perfectly fit the characters they portray. Admittedly, I doubted Eula Valdez's acting prowess on stage. Don't get me wrong, I have seen her on the boob tube and her acting really is award-worthy. But on stage, I was doubting her capabilities to pull off the acting needs of a gay-oriented theatrical play.

But she proved me wrong. She went beyond my expectations. 

Nar Cabico (Didi) was outstanding, truly worthy of the standing ovation. Tuxqs Rutaquio (Ada) may not be the best actor to portray the character but he is not to be set aside. He had his own way of portraying the character and he did the best way he can. Red Anderson (Dodong) has his singing flaws, but that wasn't a hindrance to showcase his acting powers.

The whole cast was perfect, Tanghalang Pilipino Actors Company remarkable honed their talents to become the best actors of the theater scene.

Truly an exZiting, inZpiring, and meZmeriZing ZsaZsa Zaturnnah Ze MuZikal exZperienZe.
