…and it’s all for art’s sake!

The 1980 classic drama film which starred Superstar Nora Aunor as “Bona” is now being brought to stage by Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), director Soxy Topacio and Palanca playwright winner Layeta Bucoy with a modern take from drama to a more comical perspective fit for Eugene Domingo who now plays the titular character who works as a spinster call center agent obsessed with a reality TV search wannabe, Gino Sanchez played by a reality TV show contest (Mr. Pogi) winner himself,Β  Edgar Allan Guzman.

Broadway World Philippines and photographer Jory Rivera give us a first look of the play who already garnered raving reviews and even a standing ovation from the audience for Eugene Domingo. Here are the rest of the “steamy acts”

and for the “climax”, emote kung emote na dito si Kimmy Dora…

To “cool down” everyone, here are the photos of Bona giving a bath to Gino. Did I just say “cool down”? Well, it all depends on how you view these pics starting from the chest

…then to the right nipple…

…down there (where all life begins—I’m playing Madge’s song in my head while writing this)

I’m sure a lot of people would be able to relate with Bona’s character giving her all just to suffice the desires of her heart for the guy who thinks is “the one”. Sisters, don’t tell meifyou are not familiar with these moves from your lovahs…

“Lantsing”…

“Masahe”…

“Makamandag na Halik”…

But on top of all these “sensational” teasers that you see, what is truly compelling about Bona are the sheer brilliance from the casts’ acting (both Domingo and Guzman) and its very humorous, entertaining lines.

Eugene shines in every role that she plays whether in a movie, TV or in theater but Edgar is at par here with his nuance performance.Β  I’m sure everyone’s all ears at Eugene’s but the scrutinizing eyes of the audience are at Edgar Allan’s…

The play opened last Tursday, August 23 and runs until September 23, 2012 at the PETA Theater Center (No.5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, QC). Tickets are available at: P1,000, P800, P600. Don’t miss it!
