Eugene Domingo Stars at PETA's 'Night, Mother Adaptation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Award-winning female comedian Euguene Domingo comes back to theater reprising acting on a play shecwas once involved in. Butvshe wasn't playing thevrole of the daughter back then but the mother.

This time she plays the role of the "miserable with her life" daughter with that urge to end her life. Ironically, her character relates the whole idea with her mother who, at the excerpt, pervently tries to convince her otherwise. This could mean her character is just trying to call attention to herself. Suicidal tendencies could be visible but those whonhave seen other adaptations of 'Night, Mother could shed some light on these questions.

I never do research before attending a media launch or preview. It would prevent me from expecting too much or too little as I do want a fresh perspective. Sinxe times also change, the adaptations also evolve and are sometimes cuztomized to catch up with today's realities.

I was undoubtedly surprised learning that I was not watching a comedy eventhough Eugene Domingo was the lead actor. But I shouldn't have reacted that way now that I know her roots was in theater.

True enough, Uge has come a long way from her theater origins. Her shift towards television and movies never stopped her from returning to her true love - the theater.

She now performs at PETA Theater Center for 'Night, Mother, an adaptation from an existing play.

I have to commend PETA for their various offerings. I do hope many would support their shows as they are definitely worthe the time.

For actors lije Eugene, there is so much discipline in theater as compared to mainstream relevision and movies. Fir me, theater is where we would see a lot of professionals seekibg to satisfy their thirst for true acting. Stuff like memorizing a 72-page script, quick-thinking for ad libs all throughout the play (in this case 90 minutes), and catching fellow actors when they fail to deliver lines, are just some of the skills and discipline that you'll learn from being a theater actor. Itbis not easy, but it challenges them to what they are capable of doing.

We took a video of the excerpt so please do watch it on our YouTube channel at

We also have a quick interview and shout-out with her uploaded on our social media pages.

The play will be running from February 2 to March 19, 2018 so be sure to include it on your calendar for next year.
