Theater makes an actor. I have witnessed another laurel that'll further evolve Michael Pangilinan as a true Filipino icon playing Crisostomo Ibarra in Kanser At 35 The Musical held at AFP Theater last Saturday.
From the blockbuster hit soon to be a movie "Pare Mahal Mo Raw Ako" to a concert and Your Face Sounds Familiar 2, Michael showed the potentials of his voice and acting playing Crisostomo Ibarra in Kanser at 35. It was amazing how he was able to keep making the crowd in awe doing two consecutive shows at the AFP Theater.
Gantimpala Theater made it possible to sing and act like the real Crisostomo Ibarra. Without a vocal coach and limited preparation, Michael sent the house screaming while wooing Maria Clara and while shouting for freedom. According to Michael this play started earlier than Your Face Sounds Familiar so he believes his performances improved because of Kanser. He gave us hints that he'll soon impersonate a woman icon so we have more things to look forward from him. Watch Michael transform into icons in Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 Saturdays and Sundays on ABS-CBN. Follow @khelpangilinan on Instagram for more updates.
