Repertory's Sweeney Todd

i guess i expected too much from this musical. i mean, the cast in itself is reason enough for one to go gaga the moment it was announced to be staged.

sadly, this Sweeney Todd, if not for the awesome Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, fell short of what i was expecting.

Gibbs Cadiz couldn't have said it better in his blog

while Audie Gemora's vocal skills still remain impressive, he was overshadowed by the dear Mrs. Lovett. Franco Laurel's Anthony sounded whiney while the young lady who played Johanna ate her words most of the time. as for Judge Turpin, i could care less.

what was surprising was the lady who played Lucy/beggar, Liesl Batucan, who's voice was crisp and her acting was spot on. while i liked the movie version of Tobias, Marvin Ong's take on the lad was ok. especially on the last few scenes.

needless to say, Liesl and Menchu were my favorites as they both stole the show.

i almost fell asleep on some parts. sayang. not the money, but the production in itself. i mean, i love Rep but this one was a dud. sorry.

lab rat

for the last 3 days, i was at Makati Med where i was poked and pricked which made me feel like a lab rat.

i had what they call hypokalemia, a condition where the body's potassium level becomes sigificantly low that caused temporary paralysis on my lower extremities. yes, my legs just lost power.

they just needed to normalize my potassium level, i was told but they had to keep me as well to run some tests since my blood pressure became erratic.

what's in my lab menu you ask?:

several blood tests which meant they had to draw blood 6 different times from 6 different spots;

kidney and bladder ultrasound;

thyroid imaging;

saline loading;

and loads of pills

i am now at home where my staple diet includes one banana each meal.

buti na lang hindi mangga!!!

thanks to those who dropped by :)
