Recently I already shared about this interesting show called Potted Potter which is an unauthorized musical comedy summarizing all the Harry Potter Books in just 1 show. Reports says that the show is currently a big hit and all shows are sold out. Well that is actually what I'm expecting considering the number of Harry potter fans out there. But enough about the show because I know you already know that. This time, I will be introducing to everyone two of the most amazing international performers who will be performing on this exciting extravaganza. So without further ado, here are Jesse Briton and Gary Trainor.
Jesse Briton is an actor, writer, and a director. He has been trained under East 15 Acting School in UK in which he earned a nomination as Best Actor in Spotlight Prize 2012 even just during his training. His experiences in acting include his participation in the stage adaptation of Mr Benn and the one-man show, Bassonists Against the Cuts. As a writer, he had great success for Bound, a sea-bleached tragedy of maritime decline told with traditional sea shanties, which gathered numerous awards in Edinburgh Fringe and earned him a nomination as the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright. As a director, he handled Bound and Enduring Song for Bear Trap Theater Company in which he is the company’s artistic director.
Joining Jesse is Gary Trainor, an Irish actor whom had trainings at The Italia Conti Academy where he gained a first class BA (Hons) Degree in acting. Part of his acting experience is in the critically acclaimed UK tour of Frankenstein as the lead actor, Shelly. He was also seen in Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story, The Shawshank Redemption, Stones in His Pockets, Into The Woods, and Jago. To top it off, he was recently chosen to take part in The Old Vic New Voices, which is a 24-hour play project.
Wow. With this credentials and list of works, it is no doubt that Jesse and Gary will be giving Manial audience one hell of a show. With actors having this caliber, I can't imagine how epic and fun this play will become. I'm really more excited now to see it. Opening curtains in Manila on August 28 to September 2, with limited 10 shows at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza Makati City.
