Dekada ’70 Musical Play Adaptation

Dekada ’70 has been one of the historical feats in Philippine Literature. Written by Ms. Lualhati Bautista, this novel has depicted realities during Martial Law. These realities, I believe is still applicable until now.

When my friend and I saw a poster of this play, we immediately booked a weekend to watch it. We chose the Gold Seat which costs 3,300.

A short review for Dekada ’70 Musical

It is superb. I loved the simplicity of the stage. Since we were very close to the characters! There was even a scene where the two main character were just right in front of us. The stage added power to the message of this play.

I loved how the songs were written and arranged creatively. It was heartwarming to hear the strong point that these songs want to convey. We even sang it on our way home and while eating our dinner. The songs itself were call to action.

Of course, nothing beats the prowess of the characters. They are all outstanding!

Wala na akong ibang masabi kundi sobrang ganda at linis ng pagkakagawa ng pagtatanghal. Sulit po ang bayad, at sana masundan pa ang ganitong ganap! 🙂
