4 December 2015 ON THE HOME STRETCH: Here we are at our last weekend of shows. It is with such an immense sense of gratitude that I have been allowed to experience the magic of this show with these magical people. Thank you to all who had faith in me, and to all who gave me more than I ever imagined in as far as support and love. We have four shows left and we will make every second count in Madison County. I wish we could keep on going, I wish we had another chance to live in this world, as from the beginning to end, from top to bottom, this has been a labour of love. And LOVE IS ALWAYS BETTER. xxx
20 November 2015 OPENING NIGHT: This is it. Here we are. What we have been working on for the last month. Opening night! We only have a very limited season, so every show counts. Every second is sacred. Chookas to all the amazing company that is THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY. Let's cross that bridge...
14 November 2015 SITZPROBE: Yesterday the cast sang the show with the band for the first time and it was a marriage of love! This sitzprobe was a major bridge to cross. We got to hear the beautiful arrangements and it gave us one huge leap forward into our journey to opening night. This show just gets more beautiful every day, and we are in good shape. I wish we had some preview nights, but that’s not how it works here. We dive in the deep end and swim the maverick. Tech week begins tomorrow. Full steam ahead to our first show…!!!
8 November 2015 FALLING INTO YOU: We’re now at week 3 of rehearsals, and things are going at full speed. We are revising, tweaking, improving, always layering, adding, redoing, replotting, restaging, working on costumes, reworking the costumes, perfecting vocal placements, cementing emotional attachments, consoling, cajoling…and that’s even before we start the day’s work. It’s been a master-class in dedication and passion working on this piece. Not too long to go, so the pressure is on. Much less than a million miles to go...

2 November 2015 PRESS CONFERENCE: Today we present the show to the Philippine Press at a special press conference at the Oakwood in Ortigas. We might even sing a song for them all...

26 October 2015 TONIGHT WITH BOY ABUNDA: Just about to go on set with Boy Abunda. He's a big deal here in the Philippines. A true legend. Excited and a little nervous... Ikaw na, Tito Boy. Look out for it as it airs on ABS-CBN on 3 November.
21 October 2015 A MILLION MILES TO GO: Monday we started rehearsals in Manila for THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, and sang through the whole show! Sitting beside Joanna Ampil, I must admit I felt very shy and self conscious opposite her beautiful talented gifts. I am in awe of my leading lady. I only wish to compliment her in the best way I can. I am very honoured to be given this opportunity to play opposite such a legend. Having said that, our cast is RIDICULOUS!!! Their talent and dedication and awesomeness had me in goosebumps all day. There is no weak link here. I feel so proud to be a part of this amazing production. Day 4 is tomorrow. If the past days are anything to go by, look out!! Xxx
