When the teaser came out sometime July, it created a lot of stir in the theater and the mainstream entertainment circuit.
Sab Jose, fresh from her role as Michelle in the new and original Filipino musical ‘Heto Na! Musikal nAPO’, is back onstage with Kapamilya hunk actor Jake Cuenca, who won the Movie Supporting Actor of the Year in the 28th PMPC Star Awards for Movies in 2014, for his portrayal in ‘In the Name of Love’.
Its story is about one couple; thinking about having a child. The audience will follow a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that one can only cause the people he or she loves.
The Toronto Star described this play as ‘intensely personal but also poignantly universal’ and will be directed by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan. It will premiere on September 22 at Power MAC Center Spotlight, Circuit, Makati City.
