A life well lived. That's how I can describe Celia Diaz Laurel's journey as she shares the latest highlight by releasing "My Lives Behind The Proscenium", a coffee table book, covering her adventures as an actress.

“Celia has written an entertaining story about her theatrical life in a straightforward, simple, style that not only will give the curious reader an insight into her life and the social milieu of her time but is a historical narrative of the early years of Manila theatre  and the personalities who were part of it. She writes about her early personal life as the background for the successful career she carved out for herself—not only as an actress but as a set and costume designer,” wrote Joy Virata in the foreword of the book.

The book is divided into chapters with the title as follows; Stage-struck at Five, Wartime Years, Dramatic UP Days, Yale Years, and Back to the Stage at Repertory Philippines.

“To become a painter one needs a medium such as charcoal, pastels, watercolor, oils or acrylic.  Armed with an instrument such as a brush, a palette knife, or even your fingers to apply the medium on any surface you choose, you are free to paint anywhere you please - indoors or outdoors. But to become an actor one needs a good script, a director, actors to work with, a producer, a stage, lights,  and most of all---an audience. Not too many realize that the positive energy from an audience is an essential ingredient that makes, or un-makes, a show.", Celia Diaz Laurel shares more of her insights about her book.
