It is hard to have a stage performance in New York get reviewed by a show critic. More so for a show that is the debut of a virtually-unknown actor. Well, a Filipino-American actress’ show has merited a review, a good one at that.

 


Here are some quotes from a review by William Coyle at http://offoffonline.com/reviews.php?id=1256


"The range of emotions this gifted young actress can summon is formidable". –  offoffonline.com

 

"Ms. Corpuz deftly transforms herself into a variety of characters who proceed to tell their stories, some poignant, others comic." – offoffonline.com

 

"In the ironically titled, I Am Nothing Like My Mother, Christine Corpuz, who appears to be only in her mid-twenties, has credibly transformed herself, with little more than a pair of bifocals, a red blazer, a skirt, and a thick Filipino accent, into her own mother." – offoffonline.com

 

"Her mother's repeated references to Christine's nervousness soon ring tediously modest because Christine always eventually emerges, composed and without a hint of distress, from behind the curtain." – offoffonline.com  

 

"Ms. Corpuz wrote the entire show and her writing skills are promising." – offoffonline.com

 

"A delight to watch, with unmistakable talent. See this show to become acquainted with a fine new actress. Get to know Ms. Corpuz (and her mom) now, since I have no doubt we will see her gracing New York stages for years to come." – offoffonline.com

 

Filipino Americans and their friends can still see the show, “I Am Nothing Like My Mother,” which runs up to Jan. 13, 2008. It is time to experience how a Broadway star is born.
