Repertory Philippines: [MAY03-26 2019] 'The Dresser' at Greenbelt1 OnStage Theater!

Repertory Philippines The Dresser 

Third offering from Repertory Philippines, or REP, for 2019 lets theater goers see on stage the life behind it. A carefully thought and brilliantly written play by Ronald Harwood, this is The Dresser.
Teroy Guzman, Tami Monsod, Audie Gemora, and Missy Maramara 

The lights opened and an intricate setup was revealed on stage -- a backstage and a dressing room. It started dialogue heavy with Norman, the dresser. But Audie Gemora, playing the titular role and being the REP veteran he is, is like a black hole capturing the audience's attention that we cannot escape but listen to what he's saying. Gemora managed to bring out humor every now and then, subtly executed despite the generally serious tone.
Teroy Guzman as Sir, and Audie Gemora as Norman, the dresser 

Teroy Guzman as Sir is nothing but brilliance making his first production with REP a remarkable one. From spieling various Shakesperean lines while in delusion, to exuding calmness in rested state. Guzman provided a sing-song of lightness and depth in this highly acclaimed British play.
backstage scene 

A story of devotion to craft despite the main actor's deteriorating condition, at the time of World War II, and how a dresser supported him to go on the stage by all means. Loy Arcenas' directoral debut with REP is an exceptionally-executed production delivered by veteran actors Gemora and Guzman. Nonetheless are the co-actors Missy Maramara as Her Ladyship, Tami Monsod as Madge, Justine Narciso as Irene, Jaime Del Mundo as Geoffrey, and Jeremy Domingo as Oxenby.
