Ang Buhay ni Galileo

For its 51st Theater Season, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) presents one of its landmark and iconic performances, Bertolt Brecht’s “Ang Buhay Ni Galileo" for a limited run at the PETA Theater Center from September 28-October 7, 2018. Revolving around the life of the 16th century scientist, Galileo Galilei, the play embodies the illuminating and forceful arguments of science, but also the throbbing conflict of wills, motives, and passions. The timelessness of this PETA classic shows the resistance made by the authoritarian and conservative elements of the time against the coming of a new age.

The production is directed by Rody Vera and adapted by Alan Glinoga, with set and costume design by Brenda Fajardo, set and costume execution by Boni Juan, musical direction by Dodjie Fernandez, lights design by Ian Torqueza. “Ang Buhay ni Galileo” features Joel Lamangan, Noel Comia, Upeng Fernandez, Randy Villarama, Archi Adamos, Jojo Atienza and many more.

PETA’s “Ang Buhay Ni Galileo” runs from September 28 to 30, and October 3 to 7, 2018 (10:00 AM & 3:00 PM) at The PETA Theater Center, No. 5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City. For showbuying and ticket inquiries, contact PETA Marketing and PR Office at 725-6244 or Ticket2Me at 721-0431 to 33 local 8109.

Outstanding Translation or Adaptation Outstanding Original Musical Composition Outstanding Male Lead Performance in a Play (Joel Lamangan) Outstanding Male Featured Performance in a Play (Bodjie Pascua and Noel Comia, Jr.) Outstanding Ensemble Performance for a Play Outstanding Production of Existing Material for a Play Reviews:

“It’s almost unbelievable that there ever was a time when a simple fact we know to be true – that the Earth revolves around the sun – is something that did not only have to be proven, but fought for to be revealed to the masses. … Perhaps so we can be reminded that the knowledge we enjoy is a privilege hard-won by the great thinkers who came before us.” – Theater Fans Manila

“… the original material, made more poignant and powerful by Alan Glinoga’s translation, was one glorious intellectual discourse on the essence of revolution: Is change truly necessary? Should one sacrifice peace for progress? Is there logic in maintaining personal integrity and the beliefs one holds to be true, at the cost of liberty, reputation and happiness?” – Inquirer.net
