Mabining Mandirigma: A Steampunk Musical is back!
The steampunk musical about the sublime paralytic Apolinario Mabini and his struggles against the political problems during his time is set to rekindle the audience’s hearts once again as Tanghalang Pilipino re-stages Mabining Mandirigma: A Steampunk Musical on February 19 to March 13 at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino.
The musical bagged numerous awards during the PHILSTAGE Gawad Buhay Awards 1025 (3d Quarter Citations) including Outstanding Costume Design, Outstanding Choreography for a Play or Musical, Outstanding Musical Direction and Original Musical Composition, Outstanding Ensemble Performance for a Musical, among others.
Here are some of the reviews about the steampunk musical:
“…“Mabining Mandirigma” proves to be a tour de force with its poetic text, fantastic costumes, a stage design that works perfectly with the lighting and the video projection, and an ensemble of powerful and empathic voices.-Rome Jorge, The Philippine Daily Inquirer
“The musical respectfully depicts the mind and passion behind Apolinario Mabini and while the title role is played by a female actor Delphine Buencamino, she does it so well that viewers invariably get used to the idea, their interest soon focused on what is happening.”-Mario A. Hernando, The Philippine Star
“MABINING MANDIRIGMA was a new musical that surprised us as it took pride in its creativity and form. Needless to say, that I got a glimpse of Broadway this-and-that (Les Miz, Wicked, Peter Pan, etc.), but I couldn’t care less. Tangahalang Pilipino took such risk, and the experience was all worth while…”-Orly Agawin, The Jellicle Blog
