Must-watch: Philippine Bedtime Stories

Multi-awarded playwright-actor Rody Vera invites all of us to watch "Philippine Bedtime Stories," a Filipino-Japanese theater production which will run for only two weekends in Manila.

It features plays by Rene Villanueva ("Walang Iwanan"), Layeta Bucoy ("Isang Libong Tula Para sa Dibdib ni Dulce"), Vic Torres ("Single Brown Female"), two versions of "Ang Unang Aswang" (by Mr. Vera) and Shungiku Uchida ("Ligaya sa Isang Pinoy Bar").

In Mr. Vera's words: "We just finished the Tokyo run and we're heading off to Osaka tomorrow for the weekend run there before coming to Manila for two weekends: Feb. 17 (7pm) and Feb. 18 (3pm) at the Sinag Arts Studio in Mandaluyong. Then Feb 23 (8pm), Feb 24 (3pm and 8pm), Feb 25 (3pm) at the CCP Tanghalang Huseng Batute."

The Filipino cast includes Jojit Lorenzo, Marj Lorico, Angeli Bayani, Mailes Kanapi, Raye Baquirin and Mr. Vera himself. The music for "Ang Unang Aswang 2" is by Vince De Jesus ("ZsaZsa Zaturnnah").

For tickets, call 8323661 or 8321125 locals 1620/1621.

Hi Gibbs, My son and I went to see Pasinaya and it was so packed we only got to see the PPO's medley of The Sound of Music. But it was good to see the CCP so crowded for a change. We had fun.

By the way, your blog inspired me to try my hand at a theater review:
