So Proud!

My papa, Jose Mari Avellana bagged the "Outstanding Male Lead Performance In A Play" for his riveting performance as 'Morrie' in the successful run last year of Repertory's "Tuesdays with Morrie" and was awarded at the recently concluded Philstage's Gawad Buhay Awards Night 2009 at the CCP.

Everybody agreed that HE was indeed the best!

The theater thundered with applause even when his name was being announced as one of the nominees.

So proud!

This is one of the many things he does best ... his love for the theatre will always be with him!

Here is the video of his acceptance speech:
