Free tickets to Rep's Portrait, TP's Zaturnnah

I am offering two free tickets to what I consider the first significant show of the year, Rep's A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino. Director Jose Mari Avellana's production of this old warhorse shines with integrity, a becoming simplicity, and is brought to stark, pulsing life by a nearly impeccable cast. It is, to use marketing-speak, a must-see.

The two free tickets are for the Saturday, Feb. 7, 8 p.m. show, at Onstage, Greenbelt 1. The usual small condition applies: Blog about the show afterwards in any way you like.

E-mail me at ticket, one blogger, first-come, first-served. I encourage--and will give preference to--those who have not had the chance to avail of freebies from this blog.

And if you can afford to pay for your own ticket, I can think of no more worthwhile pursuit to spend your money on than this play. It's on its last weekend this coming Friday to Sunday. Allow yourself to be entertained--enlarged--by this fine production, which has the privilege of jump-starting the theatrical year on a high note.

[UPDATE: Portrait free tickets all gone now.]

Meanwhile, Tanghalang Pilipino is also offering through this blog six free tickets to the gala night of its blockbuster musical Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah. That will be on Friday, February 6, 8 p.m., at the CCP Little Theater.

Again, to spread the opportunity around and allow more people to experience Filipino musical theater, the tickets will go to those who are availing themselves of such for the first time. The post-show blog requirement still attaches, but after the riot that is Zaturnnah, I don't think anyone would have any difficulty saying something about it, so that should be the least of your worries.

Go send me that e-mail now (with your contact details and blog URL, please). Enjoy the show!

(For “Portrait” tickets, call Ticketworld 8919999 or Repertory Philippines 8870710. For “Zaturnnah,” call Ticketworld 8919999 or Tanghalang Pilipino 8323661.)

Wow... you're always giving freebies. Nifty. Too bad for me, pointless to enter your contests as I wouldn't be able to use them, living here... and not there. :(

Anyway, wishing you a VERY belated Happy New Year and Chinese New Year.

I finally returned to blogging and decided to drop by here.
