Review: Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot (by Repertory Philippines)Wednesday, January 20, 2016 Repertory Philippines, Reviews, Theater Show,
Last Friday, I was invited by Repertory Philippines through Mommy Bloggers Philippines to watch their 79th season’s first offering – Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot.
This comedy, murder, mystery play set on the 1930’s is the perfect new year gift for all theater fans like myself.
With the superb actor line up and the impeccable 1930’s set, you would really feel like you are being transported to a totally different world.
Doing comedy, for me, is a big gamble by Repertory Philippines but I’m so glad that they did it. Comedy is so hard to pull off, me thinks. But their stellar cast of excellent actors gave justice to Ken Ludwig’s masterpiece.
We were all wowed by the 1930’s set that really looks stunning. Every detail is superb. You could really tell that the production staff put on so much effort on the whole look of the stage.
As mentioned, I am a huge theater fan myself. But Repertory Philippines made me realize that I really should watch more of these. And I’d love to tag my daughter along as well. I wanna introduce her to theater as early as possible. I want her to love theater as much as I love it. I want her to appreciate theater.
The Game’s Afoot will run from 15th of January until the 7th of February at Onstage Theatre, Greenbelt 1. You may visit http://www.repertoryphilippines.ph/ for more details and check out their entire 2016 line up as well. I am already eyeing a couple of shows on their line up. I’m so excited to watch it with my daughter! Yay!
Here’s Joan, my officemate and fellow theater aficionado. :) Thanks Joan for being my theater date! #bringafriendtothetheater
