WTF: Wala Talagang Forever sa Malacañang: A Political Satire


This Wednesday, the Assumption community was priviledged to be invited to an "afternoon of fun and laughter" with the artistic genius, the renowned Jon Santos!  Well, Jon Santos is no stranger to the AC community as he was a student and is a dear friend of an old girl, Ms Ana Valdez Lim. He has also been part of several METTA Broadway shows and the star of "The Mystery of Irma Vep" staged in our very own black box. More than these, he is a dear friend of the community and well-loved by the students, teachers, staff, and our very own ra nuns.

With Mrs. Carmen Velayo, Sr. Anna Pesongco,
and Ms. Ana Valdez Lim
Today's show was an open rehearsal to test his material for his upcoming show this September and October: WTF "Wala Talagang Forever" sa Malacañang, a political satire that will make the audience think to vote intelligently in the 2016 presidential election.

Jon, a true genius and a remarkable artist, a truly a master of his craft, portrayed several interesting characters like Lady Gaga, Miriam Defensor Santiago, Pnoy, Grace Poe/FPJ, Erap, Vilma Santos, Mommy Dionisia who all had something to say about each presidential aspirant. There was no dead air throughout the show as the audience laughed and enjoyed Jon's portrayal of each character in a span of 2 hours!

We were amused with Lady Gaga's coño comparison of Philippine election with the US election, Miriam's pickup lines and whogoats against Duterte, Pnoy's dilemma of his lack of love life, Erap's questionable intelligence and academic excellence, Grace Poe's search for her real identity, Vilma Santos' annoyance of being "ligaw" as a running of almost everyone, and Mommy Dionisia being well...uhm.. Mommy Dionisia.

Besides being funny and sensible at the same time, what I also liked best about the show was how Jon interacted with the audience and made them part of WTF, especially during the Question and Answer segment. It was truly amazing, smart, and magical all at the same time. At the end of the show, he even invited the audience to join him for photo ops, selfies, and groufies.

Save the date, Mommies, because WTF "Wala Talagang Forever" sa Malacañang, directed by Ms. Jenny Jamora, will be shown on September 25-26 and October 2-3 at 8pm at Teatrino Promenade in Greenhills. You can buy your tickets at Ticket World. This will surely be a great break and date for you and your hubby as you enjoy hours of adult entertainment.

You may also check out his latest single, "Apat na Buwang Pasko". Text PHILPOP8 to 2910.

Truly a remarkable performance from an AC girl deep deep in his heart.
