About the Event

Naririto na ang Musikal ng Sinisintang Pilipinas. In celebration of Filipino-literary icon and playwright Isagani R. Cruz, DLSU Harlequin Theatre Guild (DLSU-HTG) is set to stage a modernized retelling of his 1971 script, Halimaw. With music by Vince Lim, acclaimed-musical director of PETA’s Walang Aray, and direction from renowned Actor-Director Raffy Tejada, Halimaw revolves around an epic story of power and corruption in a fictional Philippines, not far away from reality.
