nolisoli 2022 theater productions Q4

Theater is definitely back, as evidenced by the slew of sold-out runs from the brave companies who opened 2022’s stages, both popular and experimental. And now the show is set to keep going as more theater companies are now ready to welcome audiences to their first live productions post-pandemic.

Here are just some shows to watch out for for the remaining months of the year:

“Anak Datu” is a play adapted from the short story of the same name written by National Artist for Visual Arts Abdulmari Imao. Aside from integrating the short story, playwright Rody Vera and director Chris Millado also incorporate elements and events of Mindanao’s conflict-ridden history within the plot, along with details from the lives of Imao’s family. Artist Toym Imao, son of the National Artist, also works on the play as its set designer.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Carousel” is one of REP’s postponed musicals from 2020.

Their romance costs them their jobs, which then forces Billy to find another way to provide for their new family. 

The musical is set to have a post-modern re-imagination at the hands of director Toff De Venecia. “It’s a radical departure from previous iterations, even from what we set out to do in 2020,” he said.
