A play within a play

The last play that we watched in 2010 was a musical called Dragon Tales, the first production of Asia on Stage, which was set up in 2009 to develop and stage Asian productions for Asia. Dragon Tales is based on a story and characters by the company's chair, Hong Kong Chinese Michael Chow, with music and lyrics by Filipino director, actor, writer and composer Vincent A. de Jesus, and directed by Singaporean Jeremiah Choy, here receiving a bouquet from the cast. I laud the mission of Asia on Stage and hope that it will be able to harness the talents of more Asian artists for other collaborative productions.

It's neat that there is something to encourage Asian productions. It sounds as if this play was a hit as far as you're concerned.

I am generally pleased with the quality of theatre in Manila... and this is a super mission to promote regional talent more. Was there a good audience? I am often disappointed when a theatre is less than full, whether for a play, dance or music performance.

It was full, but the PETA theater isn't very big so I don't know if that means anything. :p
