For the premier showing, I was overwhelmingly IMPRESSED! It was well written, directed and acted.

Incredible production. Wish the venue were bigger so more people could see it. Mike Talplacido wrote an amazing play. The story is relevant and important. There was so much drama. It was next-level drama and I loved it!... full review

All in all, I commend all the actors and writers, directors, and everyone who is behind all this. You all did a great job putting up this play! And I'm really happy to see Filipino plays here in the US! We need more of this to strengthen our culture and to show the world how good and talented Filipinos are also, in theater arts. Congratulations #Dont. ... full review
