In an endeavor to make theatre accessible to a wider audience, Cebu’s premier theatre communications company 2TinCans Philippines has partnered with Handuraw Pizza for Theatre Thursdays.
Once a month, talents from the 2TinCans Theatre Company hold live performances on stage with varying themes.
The first Theatre Thursdays was Theatre Tonight, held on May 17, 2018. A music-filled evening, the event featured songs from the world’s well-loved musicals—the ones you know, and even the ones you don’t. Gayle Marie Sinadjan, Chiqui Cañete, Dan Michael Sinadjan, and Dave Feril entertained a full house with their renditions from musicals and movie musicals such as Anastasia, Dear Evan Hansen, Les Misérables, Hamilton, Greatest Showman, and more.
In June, Joer Gallur, Nasil Aniñon, and Rennel Ayong staged HUGOT: Nagmahal, Nasaktan, Nagshow, a concert about falling in love, getting hurt, and learning to love again. The dynamic trio sang songs from all-time favorite Original Pinoy Music (OPM) songs in four acts—Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Shiella Pestaño Gemperoa, best known from the hit Bisaya jukebox musical Gugmang Giatay, returns in her critically-acclaimed role as the wisecracking Lola Lucy for TAGAY: Lola Lucy and the Tambays. The event, held in July, was an intimate hangout (with pizza and beer, of course) with Lola Lucy doling out advice on life and love, accompanied by musical numbers.
Theatre Thursdays is held once a month at the Handuraw Pizza White Gold. Shows start at 8:00 P.M., and admission is free. For updates on upcoming productions, like 2TinCans Philippines on Facebook.
