Still don't know where to go for the weekend? Here are the events and places to check out in the coming days.
May 9 to 19 (Globe Auditorium)
René Gallimard is a member of the French embassy in China. René is mild mannered and considers himself to be poor with women. He meets and falls in love with Chinese opera star Song Liling, a woman whom he considers to be the embodiment of the perfect woman, Madame Butterfly. But when West meets East… Everything is not what it seems….
Tickets are priced from P1000 to P2000 and can be purchased from TicketWorld.
May 3 to 26 (OnStage Theater, Greenbelt 1)
As German bombs lay England to waste, a touring theater company prepares for production of King Lear. Sir, a tormented but brilliant thespian, arrives on set in a delusional state.
Norman, his loyal dresser, does all he can to ensure that the show goes on, much to the disapproval of the company, who have had enough of Sir’s erratic behavior. As the theater fills up and an air-raid commences, Sir steps onstage as Lear while the company crosses its fingers. A poignant look at age, companionship, and the persistence of art in a time of war, The Dresser foregrounds humanity at its most vulnerable.
The production stars Audie Gemora, Teroy Guzman, Jeremy Domingo, Tami Monsod, and more.
Tickets are priced from P1200 to P1500, and can be purchased via TicketWorld.
Into the 80's
May 18 (The Theatre at Solaire)
The 80s were characterized by big shoulder pads, big hair, bold colors and bold fashion trends, larger than life performers and literally and figuratively loud performances.
The music was even bigger and bolder – amplified by the use of synthesizers, drum machines, reverb and, electric guitars creating music styles and a distinctive beat that practically screamed, “Let’s groove tonight,” and audiences couldn’t help but get up and do exactly that – MOVE and GROOVE to the beat!
This is the decade that Solaire Resort & Casino brings you into on May 18 with INTO THE 80s – a retro concert where Philippine 80s music icons Gino Padilla, Jam Morales, Jett Pangan, Lou Bonnevie and Raymond Lauchengco set the rhythm of the night and recreate the beat through the memorable music of 80s international stars and their very own OPM hits!
Catch INTO THE 80s on May 18, 2019, 8PM at the Theatre at Solaire. Directed by Toto Gentica, Script by Henry Tejero, and choreographed by Butch Esperanza.
For tickets to INTO THE 80s, you can call Ticketworld at +632-891-9999.
