“M. BUTTERFLY” NATIONAL TOUR 2019 ALL SET FOR SIX- CITY RUN FROM FEBRUARY TO JUNE



The M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 is all set to spread its wings even wider to reach major cities namely Iloilo, Dumaguete, Cebu, Davao, Manila and Baguio.
Presented by Tony and Grammy award winning producer Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment (producer of highly-acclaimed independent films Bhoy Intsik and Bwaya), the M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 was decided upon by the producers to bring this world-class masterpiece to those who did not have the opportunity to catch its 2018 Manila run. After all, location should not limit one’s exposure to the arts and culture.
Most theater companies in our country whose successful productions in Manila are often hindered from bringing their projects to other key cities because of the many challenges and technical details involved. And this is why Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment are taking this bolder step to carry on their mission and advocacy in the performing arts and to further enhance audience development throughout the Philippine archipelago.
This revival production of David Henry Hwang’s M. BUTTERFLY is the winner of the 2018 ALIW AWARDS for Best Play, Best Actor and Best Director. It was also nominated for two Best Featured Actresses in a Play and Best Ensemble.
M. Butterfly, which tells the story originally premiered on Broadway in 1998 and won 3 Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Feature Actor and Best Director.
Synopsis: René Gallimard is a member of the French embassy in China. René is mild mannered and considers himself to be poor with women. He meets and falls in love with Chinese opera star Song Liling, a woman whom he considers to be the embodiment of the perfect woman, Madame Butterfly. But when West meets East, everything is not what it seems….
Targeting audiences between ages 18 and beyond, the producers are hoping that this classic drama, inspired by Giaccomo Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly’, will likewise resonate to theater audiences from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao that “ love, power and deception holds no boundaries – whether this be in a rural or urban setting.”
RS FRANCISCO, the 2018 Aliw Awards Best Actor for M. Butterfly shall reprise his iconic portrayal of Song Liling, the Chinese opera singer who is Gallimard’s object of affection and seduces him through his biases of the East then exploits their intimacy to collect classified information for agents of the Chinese Communist Party.
RS first essayed this role in May 1990 for Dulaang UP, opposite veteran actor, writer and critic Behn Cervantes. On its debut, M. Butterfly immediately rose to critical acclaim with packed houses and box office success in over 100 performances throughout the Philippines.
In the many years thereafter, RS Francisco’s theater credits in numerous productions and variety of roles continued to hone his craft as a compleat artist. In films, his most recent awards include the SINAG MAYNILA Best Actor, the STAR AWARDS Movie Actor of the Year and the SUBIC BAY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL Best Actor.
When M. BUTTERFLY was revived recently on Broadway, RS had thought of bringing it to life once again to the new theater audiences of today. After all, this is the only ‘one’ role that continues to remain as closest to his heart.
To add a diverse twist to the M. Butterfly National Tour 2019, young actor AIRA IGARTA will step into the role of Song Liling as alternate in certain performances. As an original member of the Kurogo ensemble of the play’s 2018 Manila run, Aira is a stage and film actor from the Theatre Arts Program of UP Diliman where he took part in several Dulaang UP and Dulaang Labortoryo productions. Trained by the likes of Tony Fabella and Luther Perez, Aira was originally a dance and voice scholar at Quezon City Performing Arts Foundation (QCPADFI).
French actor OLIVIER BORTEN shall essay the role of Rene Gallimard, a former French diplomat, who relates the story of his passionate, disastrous affair with Song Liling from his cell in a Paris prison, where he is serving a long sentence for treason.
Philippine theater royalty JENINE DESIDERIO, who among many other theater, film, television and recording credits, assumed the lead role as Kim in the West End’s original Miss Saigon, will portray Gallimard’s wife – Helga. The pair married as a matter of convenience; Helga’s father had diplomatic connections that helped Gallimard ascend in his career.
After 25 years of stage acting experience in the United Kingdom, Scottish NORM MCLEOD has stepped in the Philippine stage as Manuel Toulon, the French Ambassador to China who also happens to be the dominant and strong-willed superior of Gallimard at the embassy in Beijing. Toulon promotes Gallimard to vice-consul and charges him with collecting information to aid the American war in Vietnam.
Trilingual American actor LEE O’BRIAN will once more personify Marc, the sexually unapologetic best friend of Gallimard. He encourages Gallimard to take sexual advantage of the women around him without regard for their feelings or even their consent. Although M. Butterfly was Lee’s first theatrical endeavor, his acting skills have already been tried and tested in international films Edsa Woolworth and Forgive Me Father. O’Brian also portrays Sharpless in M. Butterfly for a brief while.
Portraying the different roles of Suzuki, Comrade Chin and Shu Fang is powerful and well-rounded artist MAYEN ESTAÑERO. Her impressive performance in the 2018 run of M. Butterfly landed her an Aliw Awards nomination for Best Featured Actress. Mayen’s previous theater credits include Dalanghita Production’s Corazon Negro, An Operetta as Maestra, Virgin Labfest’s Mula sa Kulimliman as Leila and Sugid Production’s Buwan at Baril as Asawa. Comrade Chin is a member of the Red Guards, a paramilitary arm of the Communist Party in China. Song communicates with Comrade Chin often, to pass on the classified information he gathers from Gallimard.
Twice a finalist as Best Actress for the Aliw Awards, MAYA ENCILA receives her third nomination as Best Featured Actress for her unique characterization of Renee and Pin-Up Girl in M. Butterfly. The stunning Arizona native plays a young, sexually liberated Danish woman with whom Gallimard has an affair. Renee’s boldness presents a stark contrast to Song’s modesty, which Gallimard finds both exciting and obnoxious. A true expert in performing arts, Maya has taken the stage countless times as Mary Lennox for The Secret Garden, as Belle for Repertory Philippines’ Beauty and the Beast musical and as Lara for Philippine Stagers’ KATIPS, to name a few.
Rising soprano star JASMIN SALVO will be the new Opera Singer for the national tour.
The members of the ensemble playing the role of Kurogo are as follows: PHEITH IENA BALLUG, ULLYSES BASA, SASA CABALQUINTO, FRANCO FERRER and JOHN PAUL ORTENERO.
The artistic team of M. Butterfly are as follows: Jhett Tolentino and RS Francisco (Producers), Ohm David (Set), Eric Pineda (Costume), John Batalla (Lighting), Jethro Joaquin (Sound), Joed Balsamo (Music) and Carissa Adea (Choreography).
The M. BUTTERFLY NATIONAL TOUR 2019 will benefit 10 charitable institutions namely: Iloilo Prima Galaw, Philippine National Red Cross Iloilo Chapter, The Children of Cebu Foundation, Silliman University Culture and Arts Council, the Arts Council of Cebu Foundation, Love the Children Foundation, House of Hope Foundation, Halfway Home for the Boys and St. Louis University Culture and Arts Center.

Choosing The Most Comfortable Bicycles



Commuting to work, riding to buy groceries and cycling for a bit of morning exercise should all be comfortable experiences. It doesn’t matter if you're riding for 5 minutes or 5 hours. Comfort matters most, which is why sixthreezero developed a range of comfortable bikes to ride no matter where and how you ride. Comfort bicycles are convenient, easy to ride and give you ultimate pleasure.

Choosing the right bike is imperative for any cycling experience, and to those who are terrified of high tech gear and expensive bikes, the choice of comfort bikes is at their disposal. A comfort bike is a more comfortable variant of a mountain bike, built essentially for leisure, amusing riding and short distance stunts in paths or paved roads with flat terrain. They are not high-performance bikes hence they can be only be used for family errands, rides around town and family outings. 

Comfort bikes come with wider tires and bigger threads. The high air volume in these tires provides a smooth, comfortable ride that weakens the effect of small rocks and potholes. These bikes are also typically equipped with a suspension system in the front fork and on the saddle or seat post to absorb and reduce shock.

To decide what type of bicycle is suitable for you, your first consideration is to know where you'll be riding: on pavement, dirt trails or both. Some bicycles are made specifically for a particular kind of riding surface, while others are versatile enough that perhaps with a quick tire change, they can be ridden in more than one category.

The epitome of timeless style and modern comfort is a hybrid cruiser made for adventure. One of the most comfortable bikes around are hybrid bicycles. Hybrid bikes are ideal for riders just getting in to cycling: the best hybrid bicycles will be good enough to cope with all sorts of terrain without fuss, hopefully helping you to enjoy your cycling and get more involved in this great sport.

City bikes or urban bikes are designed specifically for inner-city riding, perfect for shorter-distance commuting and often featuring racks to carry luggage and wet-weather fenders to cope with all weather conditions. They are comfortable to ride on. Like flat bar road bikes, they too will typically have flat style handlebars but an even more upright riding position and a smaller gear range, in some cases only a single gear. The best city bikes are built strong to handle the rigors of the urban environment and are not as concerned with weight. A city bike with basket will be perfect for those who often have things to carry with them. City bikes usually (but not always) use the Road bike's 700c tire standard. These are lighter to roll more easily on pavement for easy acceleration and climbing.

No other shops go the extra mile to let you try their bikes for a full 365 days to see how comfortable their cruisers and hybrid bikes truly are than sixthreezero. Take one of their men’s comfort bikes for sale and give it a test ride. Try out one of their women’s comfort bikes for sale, too. If you were expecting something else, just let sixthreezero know. Shop stress-free, knowing that they will take the bike back within the return period with free shipping!

Types of Motorcycle Helmets & Where To Buy Them





There are many different types of motorcycle helmets for sale but do you know which type to get to suit your needs?

There are six basic types of motorcycle helmets, namely:
  1. Full face
  2. Modular (AKA Flip-up)
  3. Open face (AKA ¾ helmet)
  4. Half helmet (AKA brain bucket)
  5. Off-road (AKA motocross helmet)
  6. Dual-sport (AKA crossover, ADV, hybrid, enduro)
Bikebandit.com is an online store where you can find a gamut of motorcycle helmets and oem atv parts at affordable prices.


Full-Face Helmet

When you picture a motorcycle helmet, a full face helmet is probably what you have in mind. Full faces cover the top, back and front of your head. Except for the eye port of course, which is important for a little safety feature called being able to see. As opposed to 3/4 and half helmets, full faces have a chin bar. The LS2 Arrow Solid Full Face Motorcycle Helmet from Bikebandit.com is a high performance, full face helmet designed by racers for racers. The LS2 Arrow Solid Full Face Motorcycle Helmet is specialized to meet the demands of riders while maintaining an affordable price point.

Modular Helmet

The LS2 Strobe Solid Modular Helmet offers the features of a full-face helmet with the comfort of a jet helmet without compromising safety. Designed for a sport or touring motorcycle, this is the ideal helmet for all kinds of adventures. The Strobe has two shell sizes and an Intermediate Oval shape. Ventilation is key, and the Strobe features channeled ports, top vents, a chin vent, and an exhaust port to keep you cool.

Open Face Helmet

The LS2 Track Open Face Motorcycle Helmet offers a modern design with soft lines and high-quality features. Lose yourself on the asphalt during the hotter months, and protect yourself from the sun’s rays with the long visor and inner screen. The outer shell of OF569 is lightweight for comfort while also being resistant in order to absorb the energy of possible impact. The Track has an Oval shape.

Half-Helmet

The LS2 Rebellion Half Helmet features a dual stage drop-down sunscreen and UV Resistant coating. It has channeled ports and a top vent for ventilation. Its hypoallergenic liner is removable and washable. The Rebellion has two shell sizes and an Intermediate Oval shape.

Off-Road Helmet

Off-road helmets are distinguished from regular full faces by their sun peaks and pronounced, angular chin bars. Dirt riding demands a high physicality from the rider, and it’s often done in warmer weather. So, motocross helmets are designed to minimize weight and maximize ventilation.

Dual-Sport Helmet

Dual-Sport helmets fall somewhere between off-road and full face styles. Like motocross helmets, they have a sun peak and excellent ventilation. However, they also provide a little more warmth and soundproofing for on-road riding. And most obviously, they have a built-in visor and a truncated chin bar.

Besides a wide range of good quality motorcycle helmets and oem atv parts, Bikebandit.com is a motorcycle tire shop as well and you can find all your motorcycle tires there at good prices.

Is a DUI a Felony in California?




A DUI or Driving Under the Influence is considered to be a misdemeanor offense especially when it happens in California. Even though the blood alcohol level will be checked, this will not play a role in whether the DUI case can be considered as a felony. There are a few things that can change that. Definitely, a traffic ticket lawyer Sacramento will be very important:

The DUI has led to an accident that may have caused harm or death to other people who are involved.
This is already the 4th DUI that the driver has received over a 10-year period.
The driver has already been convicted for DUI beforehand.

There are some people who receive a DUI for the first time and they make it a point to never repeat it again. There are some people who seem to never learn. If the DUI case does not involve any of the three things mentioned above, the DUI in California will only be considered a misdemeanor.

DUI Turning into a Felony Case

There are people who wish that their DUI will not be a felony because there are obvious differences in terms of jail time, license suspension, and even the probation that will be received. There are obviously going to be a lot of changes with the life of a person who has been convicted of DUI. Some have said that they were fired from their jobs and they are unable to get back to the comfortable lifestyle that they used to have.

Just remember that if the DUI only results to cuts, scrapes, and scratches with other people who have gotten involved, this will not be enough to make the misdemeanor into a felony. It will only become a felony when the injuries that other people have received are already severe.

These are other factors that will be considered to decide on the severity of the punishment that will be received by the driver:
The number of people who have gotten injured because of the DUI and the severity of their injuries.
The number of DUIs that the person has already received within a certain time frame.
The driver’s age will also be a huge factor that will be taken into consideration.

The help of speeding ticket lawyer Van Nuys will help so that the punishments that will be received by the driver will not be too severe. Find a lawyer for traffic tickets 2in order to help you gain more details about DUI in general.
