On This Side of the World Reviews
Stage Scene LA- Somewhat Recommended
"...The performances are sparkling, the melodies are tuneful, and the show's heart is in the right place, but without a plot, dialog, or interconnected characters to keep an audience spellbound, a nearly two-and-a-half-hour running time is much too long for a song cycle like Paulo K Tiról and Noam Shapiro's On This Side Of The World."
Stage Raw- Recommended
"...Among the performers, perhaps the most virtuosic range is shown by Agdeppa, who owns the stage in full-on drag in the rousing number "Rice Queens" - parading in designer Jaymee Ngernwichit's dazzling strip-away costume. In a role so downplayed he is almost unrecognizable, Agdeppa later plays a grief-stricken son who, in the somber "Sunday Afternoon," recalls leaving his mother in the Philippines before death parted them forever."
