ART IS A BANG: Bonifacio Isang Sarswuela Kicks Off

After the nationwide success of Joe: A Filipino Rock'sical by the Philippine Stagers' Foundation (PSF), they kick off their new season with another homage to another Filipino hero who led the people to a national revolution that led to the independence of the Philippines. BONIFACIO ISANG SARSWELA is a timely musical about the life of the Supremo Gat Andres Bonifacio and the network of colorful characters that revolves with the brotherhood of the Katipunan. 

With 2013 as the year for the 150th birth anniversary of Bonifacio, the play will bring awareness to who the supremo really is and how controversial was his life and his battles until his death. Written and directed by Palanca Awardee Atty. Vincent Tanada who plays the role of Andres Bonifacio, makes it a play to indeed watch out for not only for its historical value but also with the meticulous material in making it a Sarswela, which makes its more Filipino in nature. 

With the whole ensemble of the Stagers taking up roles of key historical characters which the viewers especially the students would learn about Philippine history and the revolution beyond history books and monuments.
