We’re on the final stretch of the year and it’s still proving to be as busy as ever. The holiday rush is about to get into full swing, so if you’re looking for more things to do while you’re already out, or thinking of a good gift for your drama-loving friends, here are some shows to check out.

Twenty Questions

Nov. 10 to 19

Theatre Titas

The iconic Juan Ekis two-hander celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. After a successful run last May, “Twenty Questions,” produced this time by Theatre Titas, is once again returning to the stage this November. 

“Twenty Questions” follows two friends, Jigs and Yumi, who are stuck together in a hotel room overnight as a result of their barkada’s annual tradition. They play a game of 20 questions, fielding each other questions that force them to think deeper about love, intimacy, and each other.

Tabing Ilog the Musical

Nov. 10 to Dec. 17

PETA Theater Center, Quezon City

Our favorite barkada drama series of the 2000s gets the theatrical treatment with “Tabing Ilog the Musical.” Expect a tale of teenage friendship, with the intricate issues of family, identity, dreams, and love woven into the mix. The production features a mix of theater veterans and up and coming Star Magic talents.

The Last Five Years

Until Nov. 12

Barefoot Theater Collaborative

Puccini’s opera, “La Boheme,” produced here by Viva Voce Voice Lab, is getting restaged this month at the CCP Black Box Theater. The story follows the lives of a seamstress and her four artist friends. “La Boheme” was also the opera that inspired Jonathan Larson’s “Rent.” 

This staging of “La Boheme” is set in 1960s Paris.

Sandosenang Sapatos

Tanghalang Pilipino

A heart-wrenching tale of family, love, and magic, “Sandosenang Sapatos” follows the story of Susie, a young girl who wishes to fulfill her shoemaker father’s dream of having a ballerina daughter. The problem is that Susie was born without feet. The musical is based on a short story by medical doctor and children’s book author, Luis P. Gatmaitan.
