MANILA, Philippines – I had an AWESOME experience last Saturday as I experienced what a play is like…in a coffee shop!!
I wrote about this play several months back but I have not seen it live. Since then, I kept my excitement and occupied myself by supporting the marketing efforts of Acasia, the non-profit organization producing “Kapeng Barako Club: Samahan ng mga Bitter”. All the preparation boiled down to one night, a special encore presentation for the Media and Bloggers. The wait was worth every minute. Everyone was having fun, got a lot of freebies and was able to interact with the actors. 🙂
The play started at exactly 7:30pm. Honestly, I didn’t expect it to happen on time but the group was committed to what it promised to the attendees. From scene 1 up to the final act, all 7 actors lived up to their characters. Kudos to Mr. Juan Ekis, the Palanca Award-Winning writer who orchestrated the night.
Thank you again to all who supported and joined us last Saturday. It’s something for the books and we look forward to seeing everyone in the succeeding runs of KBC! For those who missed out on this play, it will be BEST to experience it first hand. It’s rare you find a play in a cafe, right? :p
