  • 200 animal puppets, 6 Pinoy kids, 22 days away–ready for ‘The Lion King’ in Manila?
      The powerful chant in the beginning of "The Circle of Life" is so enduring that it is easily recognizable from the first note. The Zulu intro to Disney's "The Lion King"---which translates to "Here comes a lion"---ushers an image of the sun rising over the savanna and animals gathering before Pride Rock.

  • The everyday miracle of a mother’s love in ‘Himala, Isang Musikal’
      Director Ed Lacson Jr. presents "Himala: Isang Musikal" as a "distilled version" of the musical based on the classic film by Ishmael Bernal. There is no orchestra, and props and choreography are minimal. He stages it with a few twig fences as scenery, a lone piano, and the raw power of the human voice. Two voices, in particular, stand out from the eerie, immersive set: Aicelle Santos as Elsa, and Bituin Escalante as Aling Saling, Elsa's adoptive mother. "Himala" is the story […]

      With so much coverage of last week's grisly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., students, parents and others are struggling to cope. Christine Sylvest, a child psychologist in Rockville, Maryland, has a unique perspective. She grew up in Coral Springs, Florida, and attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in nearby Parkland, the site of the shooting that left 17 people dead. She moved with her family to Ashburn, Virginia, before her senior year in 1995. "For me, this was […]
  • Clarifying California’s rules on work breaks
    Q: I have just entered the work force and I work in the service industry on 12-hour shifts. My supervisor says I am entitled to one 30-minute lunch break and two rest breaks of 10 minutes each. A co-worker said it should actually be two lunch breaks and three rest breaks because we work 12 hours. Is this right?   A: Your co-worker is right. Under California law, employers must provide a 30-minute uninterrupted meal period to employees for every 5 hours of work. Thus, if you work […]
