Cory Magic Alive Again in Musical
By Fe Zamora
In a tribute to a beloved President, a “grateful nation” presented former President Cory Aquino with a musical on Saturday night that traced her life from a sheltered, rich girl to a leader of a movement that toppled the Marcos dictatorship in 1986.
“Sabi ni Ninoy (Ninoy said) the Filipino is worth dying for. But what is worth living for when once again death is at my door?” singer-actress Isay Alvarez, who played Aquino in the stage production, wondered in the opening scene of “Cory The Musical.”
The former President, who was seated near the stage of Meralco Theater, would answer the question in a short speech after the finale.
