Dalanghita Productions will stage a series of plays that will surely make you reminisce all those first-time experiences you had for love – be it date, kiss, quarrel, heartbreak, or heck even *toot* (whichever that word really means), and it's set to grace starting this weekend!
Tatlong Linggong Pag-Ibig is a program consist of six original Filipino productions – either a stage act play or a musical. And three of them were actually restaged from the successful 12th Virgin Labfest held June this year.
The six acts will be divided into two sets (with three of them will be scheduled to exhibit each). Set A will be comprised of Isanlibong Taon, Mula Sa Kulimlim and Malapit Man, Malayo Rin.
Isanlibong Taon is a musical created by playwright Pertee Brinas, composer Ejay Yatco, and director Guelan Luarca. The play is set in the early 90s, where Philip (portrayed by RJ Santillan) comes back to his hometown in Palawan after two years of pursuing greener grass in Manila. He returns to the 'backward' society to be reunited with his beloved, only to find out that he has to make a decision that would change his life forever. In a land dominated by principles, religion and societal norms, Philip's own disposition in life is challenged by illogical, irrational, inconvenient matters of the heart.
Mula Sa Kulimliman is a product of playwright Carlo Vergara and director Hazel Gutierrez. Estranged from her parents, an ordinary housewife is faced with a shocking truth about her husband, and she is forced to question whether her life had all been a fantasy, and if the fantastic were real. Stars Mayen Estanero, Jonathan Tadioan, and Jonathan Castillo.
Malapit Man, Malayo Rin is written by Chris D. Martinez and directed by Melvin Lee. The story starts revolving when Manila traffic problem becomes a roadblock to a couple's brewing love affair. The man is from the 'North', and the woman is from the 'South'. Who is to blame for the roadblocks of this relationship? As the couple meet to celebrate their 3rd monthsary, they decided to make an important decision on their relationship. Stars Roi Calilong and Patricia Liwanag.
The other half of Tatlong Linggong Pag-Ibig (Set B) will be featuring Corazon Negro, Rom.Com, and Ang Una at Comeback Album ni Pete.
Corazon Negro is a sung-through, one-act play musical chronicling the unrequited love of Maestra, a Filipino teacher during the Spanish period who falls in love with the grave digger Honorato. Unfortunately, the latter is not in love with church queriada Illuminada. In loving Honorato, placing his well-being before hers, Maestra is forced to deal with one of love's cruel realities: that loving someone may lead to an imposition of one's own values, that though such values may aid the beloved in fulfilling his potentials, unrequited love may just be bitterness springing from a heart blackened by an overwhelming sense of self-entitlement. The operetta is a product of playwright Layeta Bucoy, composer Jed Banselmo, and director Tuxqs Rutaquio and stars Mayen Estanero, Al Gatmaitan, and Natasha Cabrera
Rom.Com is a play written and directed by George De Jesus and stars Jet Pangan and Sarah Facuri. Beth (Facuri) is a wedding planner, a hopeless romantic; and William (Pangan) is a graphic artist, a cynical realist, they meet like in a romantic comedy where opposites tend to fall for each other. But unlike the template and clichés of a romantic comedy, Beth and William finds that love is messier and not as easy to dissect and analyze.
Ang Una at Comeback Album ni Pete is a musical brainchild of Juan Miguel Severo with the direction of Mara Paulina Marasigan. The story is about Pete, an ex-child star, who is certain that he has what it takes to stage a successful return to the spotlight – this time as a singer-songwriter with a concept album based on characters of Peter Pan. However, the competitiveness of show business requires a gimmick o ensure their success and it prompted Pete's manager to recruit the help of Pinoy Pride and West End's rising star, Darlene, who also happens to be Pete's first love. The past begins to take over the band rehearsals and starts to create a rift in the songwriter's budding romance with Diwata, the heartbreakingly hopeful band roadie eager to get her own chance to shine.
