Upstart’s newest offering, Love/Sick by John Cariani, is a romantic production that will be held at The Mind Museum in BGC – a first for the renowned museum. The play fuses both art and science—a theme fit for the venue.

The play, which the Huffington Post calls “a great date night idea,” is a series of short, bittersweet romantic plays that explore the psychology of love and relationships. So when searching for a venue partner, show director and cast member Joel Trinidad wanted an institution that appreciated not just the artistry of the piece, but the science behind it.
“The show engages both the heart and the mind,” he declares. “So the Mind Museum was a perfect fit.”
Love/Sick, which opens at 8:00 pm on August 5, will feature multi-awarded pop icon Rachel Alejandro, and will be the first theatrical production mounted at the highly regarded museum, a place known for its dedication to science and the creative arts.
Trinidad and Alejandro will be co-producing the show, along with some other partners from the world of theater (who will also appear in the production). “The more we learned about the Mind Museum, its philosophy and vision, the more excited we were to partner with them,’” Alejandro enthuses. “We were very fortunate that they shared our vision.”
Love/Sick is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
The Mind Museum presents John Cariani’s Love/Sick, directed by Joel Trinidad. 8:00 pm on August 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, and 9:00 PM on August 15, 12, 19 at the Mind Museum Auditorium, J.Y. Campos Park, 3rd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Tickets are P500 each.
