LOOKBOOK #121 - THEATRICAL | CINDERELLA AT THE NEWPORT PERFORMING ARTS THEATER

Theatrical (adjective) - exaggerated and excessively dramatic. "Paul rode the escalator of Resorts World Manila with theatrical caution". —ang taas eh.
HYPE on Lookbook
But with all exaggeration and drama aside, this is what I would wear when watching a musical at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.

Minus the Ray-Ban's of course.
Forever 21 jeans | Uniqlo collared shirt | Basic House blazer
Sperry topsiders | SM Accessroies belt | Ray-Ban aviators
Nothing too fancy with just the right amount of "respect" to the place and whatever it is that I'll be watching.

You can't expect me to dress casually stepping past this entrance

leading to the grand and magical stage of the Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT).

I was impressed by how awesome the whole place looked on TV last week when The Voice held its first live show! Finally. An awesome venue for an equally awesome show. I can't wait to watch The Voice live...

…and Cinderella. Another beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical slated to capture the hearts of kids and adults alike starting this October 9, 2013.

Originally written for television, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella was based on the popular French version Cendrillion by Charles Perrault. The television musical was first broadcasted in 1957 in CBS which was viewed by over 107 million people during its network premiere. It featured Julie Andrews in the title role and Jon Cypher as the Prince. The three-act TV version was comprised of original compositions that spiced up the well-loved fairy tale including "In My Own Little Corner", "Ten Minutes Ago", and "Do I Love You Because you're Beautiful" among others.

In 2008, Tony Award winning actress Lea Salonga top-billed Broadway Asia Entertainment's 30-week Asian Tour of Cinderella which premiered in Manila.

This 2013, Resorts World Manila, the ultimate one-stop, nonstop entertainment and tourism destination in the country, will bring Cinderella back to Manila as its latest musical offering.

Slipping on the famous glass slippers to play the title role is TV and stage luminary Karylle Tatlonghari, with Julia Abueva and Justine Pena as alternates. Asia's Pop Idol Christian Bautista, on the other hand, will fill the role of Prince Christopher alongside Fred Lo as his alternate.

The First Lady of Philippine Musical Theater, Menchu Lauchengco - Yulo, will once again step into the enchanted stage of the Newport Performing Arts Theater, this time to play the role of the ever-reliable Fairy Godmother. Also joining the all-Filipino ensemble are Pinky Marquez, Sweet Plantado, Sheila Francisco, Miguel Faustmann, Maronne Cruz, Gianina Ocampo and Red Concepcion.

Resorts World Manila's Cinderella is under the direction of veteran theater actor and director Michael Williams.
