Not a drill: These Pinoy stage plays are streaming for free!
The theatres may be closed, but the shows must go on(line)! To give fans a dose of culture at home, iWant has partnered with Tanghalang Pilipino to offer a series of stage productions you can watch for FREE—streaming from June 12 to July 12, 2020!
Mabining Mandirigma, A Steampunk Musical
In this award-winning play, Monique Wilson plays Apolinario Mabini, the chief adviser to Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. All set to a steampunk score, the show chronicles how the hero discovers America’s imperialist intentions, which eventually leads to his unfortunate exile.
Lam-ang, An Ethno-Epic Musical
Starring no less than JC Santos, the show reimagines Biag ni Lam-ang—paying tribute to our heritage and culture in epic proportions!
Here’s something for the kiddos! Catch Trixie Esteban as she plays wheelchair-bound Susie in ‘Sandosenang Sapatos’.
To escape the harsh realities of life, every year on her birthday, she travels to ‘dreamland’, where the diwata gifts her a pair of shoes—allowing her to walk and dance!
Since the company’s founding in 1987, ‘Coriolano’ stands as the 9th Shakespeare production orchestrated by Tanghalang Pilipino.
In this full-throttle war play, Marco Viaña plays the complex titular character—the legendary Roman warrior. His allegiance is challenged as he ultimately turns into a tyrant, which leads to his demise.
Pangarap sa Isang Gabi ng Gitnang Tag-Araw
Here’s a Pinoy take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream—a comedy revolving around the love shared by four young Athenians: Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena.
Der Kaufmann by Rody Vera: Ang Negosyante ng Venecia by Rolando Tinio (Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare)
A play within a play, Der Kaufmann relives the nightmare that is the holocaust, with Nazi Germans forcing Jewish “actors” to perform.
Watch these shows while you still can! After all, they steam for FREE—and for a cause! To support the local theatre, the proceeds will go to Tanghalang Pilipino’s community and workers.
