PETA's 3 Stars And A Sun - review
So it's a dystopic setting for PETA's 3 Stars And A Sun, providing a storyline based on Francis Magalona's patriotic pop-rap songs that many of us would have not imagined. Re-imagining like how PETA did with Rak of Aegis, the musical has got a strong message on family and nationalism.
If you look closely, lighting direction of 3 Stars form the Philippine Flag. Colors Red, Blue and White are dominant in most part of the musical, representing the two different sections of society -- red for Diliman, the lower sector; white for Lumina for the high society; blue, which should represent peace has no sector because it was missing in between Diliman and Lumina. At least that's how I see it.
I think it's understandable that patriotism is an overall message for "3 Stars." As notable in Francis Magalona's songs, he opens up to the youth the sense of loving the Philippines as events turn us slowly towards foreign patronage along with our pursuit of progress and peace. It's a combination of love, friendship, betrayal, and loyalty that will touch the patriotic heart in you. This musical immortalizes Francis M with brilliant performance and message. Just in time for national elections but I hope the message remain in our hearts forever.
