Manila, Philippines--Repertory Philippines (REP) is bringing back one of its acclaimed original musicals "Miong," which tells the story of Emilio "Miong" Aguinaldo, the first president of the Philippines (1899-1901), who embarks on a mission to unite the Filipino people during a time of social division.
The show, which stars Tim Pavino, plays at the Onstage Theatre at Greenbelt 1 in Makati City, starting February 15, 2019, and will run through March 10, 2019.
When the Spanish colonizers assert their power over the Filipinos by turning them against each other, a young Miong understands that the key to freedom lies in unity. Though he wants his countrymen to be liberated from oppression, he's a conflicted leader who is unsure of what course of action to take. Miong digs into this controversial figure's motivations, giving audiences a fuller idea of his origins, traits, and psyche.
Dexter Santos is the choreographer; Ejay Yatco, musical director.
