Cherie Gil Set To Play Fashion's Grand Dame in Full Gallop

Wazzup Pilipinas!
Noted fashion columnist, editor and International Best Dressed List hall of Fame awardee Diana Vreeland worked for fashion magazines Harper's Bazaar and Vogue and as a special consultant at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She was a major force in shaping culture, style, taste and even language for all time.

Our favorite antagonist and the most sophisticated "kontrabida" of Philippine cinema who made life miserable for Sharon Cuneta during the old days at the very memorable role at "Bituing Walang Ningning" along with her famous line "You're nothing a but a second-rate, trying hard copy-cat!" will play Diana Vreeland in Mary Louise Wilson and Mark Hampton's Full Gallop - a play that focus on the life of the fashion doyenne who stood at the center of American style for five decades. The play is a portrait of this remarkable woman at a turning point in her life.

At a presscon held at Salon De Ning located at the Manila Peninsula hotel, Cherie Gil shared with us her excitement in playing the role of Diana Vreeland. She was joined by Director Bart Guingona, fashion designer Rajo Laurel, celebrity Giselle Toengi and make-up and hairstylist Ruben Nazareth.

My Own Mann Productions, Inc. and Actor's Actors Inc., proudly announces Full Gallop which promises to be both funny and poignant while it explores the brilliance of a woman a a crossroads for whom life can only be lived as a constant parade of adventures.

Knowing Cherie Gil, we'll surely see more than just a Devil Wears Prada performance. I am betting everything I own that she will be able to deliver a stellar performance that everyone should not miss as the show dates are very limited.

The play is set to open on March 14 at a gala night premiere at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of teh RCBC Plaza located at Ayala Avenue corner Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue Makati City. Regular performances will be on March 15 and 21 at 8 pm and matinee shows on March 16 and 23 at 4 pm. March 14 Gala night tickets are at Php 3000 orchestra center, Php 2000 orchestra side and loge and Php 1000 for balcony inclusive of cocktail food and wine. 

Regular night tickets are Php 1500 for orchestra center, Php 1000 for orchestra and loge, and Php 600 for balcony.

Part of the proceeds will go to the Virlanie Foundation's project in rebuilding houses in Negros areas affected by Typhoon Yolanda.
