Philippine Theater is soooo alive!
Take the current musical production by Repertory Philippines that is ongoing right now until March 10.
MIONG, a musical based on the life of Emilio Aguinaldo, was written in 1998 to celebrate the centennial of the Declaration of Independence. It spans his life from birth on March 22, 1869, to the declaration of independence on June 12, 1898.
MIONG is a story of how a young person, born into a middle-class provincial family and despite external and internal conflicts, declared independence for his country and gave it its national flag and national anthem.
