Tagalog sa King Street

September 5, 2019 - October 5, 2019

Tagalog sa King Street is a collection of one-act plays written and performed in the national language of the Philippines. With the creative use of live English surtitles and shadow puppetry, non-Tagalog speaking patrons can enjoy the innovative, brave new playwrights selected from the Virgin Labfest of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady (How I became the Leading Lady), by Carlo Vergara, is a story of two sisters, Mely and Viva, who turn a small grudge into a superhero battle between good and evil.

Hintayan ng Langit (Heaven’s Waiting Room), by Juan Miguel Severo, is about 67-year-old protagonist, Manolo, meeting his unrequited love, 64-year-old Lisang, in purgatory. Their spiritual ascent is delayed until they resolve a lifetime worth of heartaches and regrets.

This is a workshop production that will be presented in two parts:

  1. Open rehearsals as the creative team comprised of Lorna Velasco, Ai Lalo, Alyza DelPan-Monley, Arlo Magpoc, Nina De Torres Ignacio, Manny Golez, Pia Rivera, Joyce Juan Manalo and Leah Mitts transform the space into a world of shadow and light. Dates and times will vary throughout September, please call ahead.
  2. Three performances of the completed work that are free to the public on Thursday, October 3rd and Saturday, October 5th. RSVP to one of these free performances:
