Tanghalang Pilipino Presents "Mga Ama, Mga Anak"

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Mga Ama, Mga Anak,” is a poignant drama in three acts revolving around former town illustrado and Caritela king Zacarias Monzon, his fall from power and wealth, and his gnawing conflicts with his son and his family, amid dementia and unresolved issues. Cruelty, hedonism, disloyalty, and suffering marred his past.

Now, so close to death, Carias still has the reins over his resentful son, his confused grandson, and a benevolent martyr of a mistress, until they decide it was time to cut loose and be responsible for what they are and what they will be.

Featuring stage luminaries Spanky Manikan (Carias Monzon), Robert Arevalo (Carias Monzon), television actress and host Jacquilou Blanco (Sofia Monzon), noted young actress Cris Villongco (Bessie), and multi-awarded singer-actress Celeste Legaspi.

Also leading the sterling cast is Tanghalang Pilipino’s Artistic Director and premier actor Fernando ‘Nanding’ Josef who plays Celo Monzon, Carias’ son. Noted actress Madeleine N. Nicolas (Nena), Peewee O’Hara (Mrs. Paulo), Banaue Miclat Janssen (Nena) and Marco Viana (Chitong) are also in the cast, as well as understudies from the TP Actors Company -- Lhorvie Anne Nuevo, Nicolo Magno, Jonathan Tadioan and Doray Dayao.
