FULL GALLOP: What Does It Take To Become a Fashion Icon? Divine!

Bravo! What a delightful performance! Congratulations to Full Gallop team for the enchanting evening last Friday, March 14, 2014. It was quite an experience to remember as I was watching Full Gallop, Ms. Cherie Gil who draw us into her world. We the audience all felt like high-society guests sitting in Ms. Vreeland's living room.

Ms. Cherie Gil amazingly performed with tour-de-force one-woman show, the Mary Louise Wilson and Mark Hampton's "Full Gallop." Ms. Cherrie plays Diana Vreeland, who had just recently been unceremoniously fired as editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine.

This two-hour play Vreeland regales us about her various interesting experiences with famous and rich people she hung around with. 

She displays her dances - tango, ballet or the kabuki while she plays us her favorite music on her record player. Her Intercom conversations with her laconic French maid Yvonne (featuring the voice of G Toengi) were hilarious. She even drops big names in the history of fashion, like Balenciaga, Coco Chanel and Helena Rubenstein.

Ms. Vreeland's living room is luxuriously classy set by Joey Mendoza.

Congratulations to director Bart Guingona, the crew and staff of MyOwn Mann Productions Inc. for this exhilarating play. 

Hurry and catch the last few remaining shows of "Full Gallop"! After its premiere last night, there are only four shows left, March 15, then 21, 22, all at 8 pm and one final show on March 23 at 4 pm.
