Follows the intertwining lives of Imelda Romualdez Marcos and the woman who raised her, Estrella Cumpas, against the political backdrop of the Marcoses' rise to power and fortune in the Philippines. Set in the clubs of the rich and famous that Imelda loved and frequented, the piece follows a period of history from poor beginnings in the 1950s to the 1980s, when Imelda and her family were forced to leave the Philippines. The piece tells the story before the story we think we already know of the extravagance of her husband's reign and the 2,700 pairs of shoes.
SEEKING POSSIBLE FUTURE REPLACEMENTS:
Multiple ethnicities are found throughout the population of the Republic of the Philippines from the migrant arrivals from China, Spain, Korea and Southeast Asia, among other nations. Casting personnel state, ''Because of the specific world of the play, we are particularly interested in considering performers to play Filipino and/or Asian characters.'' All must have GREAT POP SINGING VOICES and move well.
