From the Natatanging Gawad Buhay! citation: A titan of contemporary Philippine theater, Tony Espejo is one of the pioneers of theater-in-education through his mainstreaming of the Four Classics of Philippine Literature and other masterpieces of world literature in the repertoire of Bulwagang Gantimpala and the Gantimpala Theater Foundation. He has mentored hundreds of now-popular and multi-awarded actors and technical theater practitioners and has directed hundreds of plays at the CCP, Metropolitan Theater and other venues in Metro Manila and the regions.
Take note: Mr. Espejo is already one of the pillars of local theater, but still he reiterates in his speech how “we [theater artists] are all diamonds in the rough,” ever in need of learning and constant honing. The mark of a true artist, I must say--and quite possibly the secret to his long-haul success. Bravo!
