Broadway Youth Cebu stages the Philippine premiere of the critically acclaimed Broadway play "The Lifespan of a Fact."

Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal, the play gathers a famous writer, a magazine editor, and a lowly fact checker in a room debating the meaning of words, facts, and art.

Directed by Allan Nazareno and Everild Catugal, the Philippine premiere of “The Lifespan of a Fact” stars RJ Chan II, Clariza Mae Sevilla, and Arnel Pahang.
