The Unbreakable Nadine Lustre: A Declaration of Independence
Rank Magazine | September 17, 2022

From her early days as a wide-eyed aspirant to her whirlwind romance with national fame, and now in her continuing reign as entertainment and pop culture royalty, there remains to be an incontestable fact that Nadine Lustre is an indomitable force and she is showing no signs of slowing down. An award-winning actress, a musician, a sold-out concert performer, creative visionary and entrepreneur, fashion icon, and even a fan-anointed figure head, while cognizant to the attendant boon, curse, and responsibility of her ascent to the pantheon of entertainment greats, editor Leo Balante writes, heavy is the head that wears the crown, but Nadine Lustre has declared herself completely free from edicts on her person other than hers, and has mastered—no, lived and breathed—the art of being Nadine Lustre.

Review
Review: ‘Mula sa Buwan’ is a Glorious Theatrical Marvel that Needs to Be Seen, Heard, and Felt—Now More than ever
Leo Balante | September 7, 2022

For what it is and what it represents, “Mula sa Buwan” , in all its splendor and jaw-dropping glory, transcends its very description of a “story of love and defiance”. It is not merely a story of love and loss, but a deep well of narratives that question ‘what is’ and shows us ‘what could be’ if all the man-made and socially constructed concepts on which the edifices of judgment and othering are built do not exist. In all its grandiosity and surrounding fan-clamor, “Mula sa Buwan” goes beyond a celebration of the return of theater. It is a declaration and a reminder of the strength and power of the human spirit.
