The story of 𝘙𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘰 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘑𝘶𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘵 was already told too many times. So what’s new in this play?

A Filipino Muslim adaptation was made through “Sintang Dalisay”. The dance, the scoring, and the production design are the new elements to watch out for.

For a university play, the overall look of the stage is impressive—although some parts of it are underutilized such as the side bridge and the upper platform. The costumes look elegant, but the skin tone shirts are distracting since it fails to blend with their body.

Your ears will be blessed with Anima Tierra’s live musical scoring that perfectly sets the mood in every scene.

The best part of the show was the love scene, as the intimacy between the two characters was shown in a creative way. Aside from that scene, the connection is already weak. There’s no chemistry between Jerome Dawis and Mitzie Lao. Some actors are detached from their roles. The choreography doesn’t feel natural. At the latter part of the play, the movements look more comedic than authentic.

The direction is inconsistent. The dialogues can get formal and informal at the same time. The actors modulate their voices until they didn’t. Some moments could’ve been made more special but they weren’t highlighted enough. Some casts are part of the ensemble. They switch roles every once in a while, and the transitions aren’t smooth.

On the first few minutes of this play, you’ll be mesmerized with how it was staged. For providing something refreshing to the classic 𝘙𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘰 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘑𝘶𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘵, it deserves a praise.

Dahil ginawang Pilipino ang isang banyagang dula,

ang 𝘚𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘨 𝘋𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘺 ay hindi mo ikakahiya.
